  • Joel Rodgers

Another local talented artist is heading to the Port Grill. And you can see (and hear) her July 14.

Front person and lead guitarist of Spectra Vamp, Jennifer Janét, was practically born with a
guitar in her hand. Originally from Baton Rouge, LA, Jennifer started playing guitar at the
age of 9. After which, she played guitar in several church worship teams for 12 years playing
acoustic and electric guitar.

Jennifer started playing professionally with her sister, JoAnna Janét, soon after graduating from MTSU in Murfreesboro, TN and was fortunate enough to perform with JoAnna on The Grand Ole Opry in 2002. After the birth of her son, Samuel, Jennifer beganplaying on a regular basis with her sister, Jessica Janét Brock, in Shreveport, LA. In 2006, Jennifer joined a Houma, LA based rock band, Sons of William, playing bass. She recorded 2 albums and toured with the group for 5 years, while still remaining a member of several different bands in Shreveport.

The idea for “Spectra Vamp,” came about in early 2015, after Jennifer’s sister, Jessica, won a vocal competition. Heavily influenced by several different styles of music, Jennifer began writing and recording songs for the project with no set genre in mind. The multi-genre album, “Attention” was completed in 2016 and released digitally in February 2017.
