headerJSRESIZE When she was a little girl back in Wisconsin Jennifer would sit at the piano lost in a dream. Music took her some place that felt better than anything. She had talent they said, but somehow life got in the way. Now years later she’s reclaimed her true north, and her voice is as pure and personal as you’ll hear anywhere. The country runs through it and it’s a beautiful highway. Her first EP "To Measure The Sky" available now @ CD Baby, iTunes,Spotify & more. Original songs from an original voice. Jennifer Smieja, (smile in Polish).
