Jenna McLean

Jenna McLean

Jenna McLean

Jenna’s voice embodies a robust, velvety quality influenced by singers like Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Rachel Price, Sara Bareilles and many others. She finds her artistic drive in building upon her past in musical theatre, bringing new twists to timeless standards of the Great American Songbook as well as newer pop, funk and soul tunes. With a love and devotion for jazz, opera, R&B, and folk music, she maintains the belief that all music is good music as long as it speaks to the soul and grooves.

Currently studying at the University of Northern Colorado, Jenna is working with Julia Dollison and Kerry Marsh toward her Master’s in Jazz Studies. As a recent graduate of the University of Wyoming in Laramie, WY, she received her Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance. During her time at UW she studied under Maureen Boddicker, Larry Lee Hensel and jazz pianist Ben Markley. She was cast in many large operatic roles including Yum-Yum in Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Mikado”, Lola in Douglas Moore’s “Gallantry” and several others. Jenna has also played several Musical Theater roles such as Fiona in “Brigadoon”, Marty in “Grease” and Rosemary in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”. While she is a thoroughly trained advocate of opera and art song, Jenna is truly at home singing Jazz, and has spent many of her recent years studying jazz and improvisation and performing at local venues.
