Jennifer Eckes is a Minnesota native who has been singing professionally for over two decades, in stage productions large and small, and as a soloist in concerts and cabaret shows. Currently based in St. Paul, she has sung in local theatrical productions with the Ordway Center, Artistry Theater, Plymouth Playhouse, Skylark Opera Theatre, the Minnesota Opera, and many others. She is a versatile vocalist who has found many musical revue and solo opportunities throughout the region, at venues such as the Ordway Center, Bloomington Center for the Arts, Hastings Arts Center, Hanifl Performing Arts Center, Bryant-Lake Bowl, Honey Lounge, Crooners, and the Nicollet Island Inn. Jennifer found her passion for the Great American Songbook and cabaret performance as a fellow at the Cabaret Conference at Yale University in 2003 & 2007, and is a founding member of the Twin Cities Cabaret Artists Network. Her voice has been called “crystalline”, “rock solid”, and “easy to listen to” by reviewers, often praised for her warm stage presence and “plain-spoken charm”. Jennifer particularly loves telling the story of a well-written song, using humor and honesty to reach the audience on a personal level.
