Jen has been out touring the northeast region of the United States in support of her new CD, “Lonesome Sunbeam.” In addition to several locations in the Hudson Valley, including Brooklyn, Saugerties, and Beacon, Jen has travelled to Cambridge, MA, and Burlington and Barre, Vermont. Other cities on her agenda include Geneva, NY (in the Finger Lakes region), Rochester, NY, Philadelphia, PA, and NYC.

Songs from the record are receiving play on many stations now, as well as on internet radio. Jen was the featured artist on Laney Goodman’s Women on Air program, and an interview with Jen appears in Indie Sounds NY, issue #39.

As with most things in her life, promotion of this record has been a DIY affair. That means all the radio, press and booking is being done in-house (in Jen’s house, to be specific). If you would like to help get “Lonesome Sunbeam” out to a broader audience, consider:
- contacting your local radio station and making a request for one of Jen’s songs
- writing a review of the record on the CD Baby website (www.cdbaby.com/jenclapp)
- hosting Jen at a House Concert in your living room
Many thanks to the informal “street team,” who keep buying CDs and handing them out to friends (you know who you are)!
Mark Westin was in the house in November when Jen had the BIG FUN opportunity to play a show with a band of great folks. A couple of her songs were videotaped, including the as yet unrecorded Haunt Me. All the other tunes recorded from that show are worth checking out, too.
