Jen Awad is the unsigned artist that everyone’s talking about. After her packed Echo residency in January 2019, she released her EP, Jewel of the Nile.
Showcasing her powerhouse vocals and big band, the EP is conceptually a ride into Jen’s real life. Dealing with love, feeling unworthy, and trying to make sense of relationships. It feels raw and real. It’s nostalgic yet new.
The Peruvian-Egyptian singer is bringing back soul. Combining Etta James vocals with the swagger of Tina Turner, she references Poison Ivy from the Cramps as her style icon. If you can imagine an LA native with a classic soul voice and a punk glam style, singing every real emotion wrapped in the self-conscious aspect of attraction, you have Jen Awad.
