“Americana… at its finest.” (Nicky, Fireworks Magazine)
Formally known as “Jena And The Ballad Of Calamity” to promote her last CD, she dressed the part of “Calamity” but now, sadly, “Calamity” has died and Jena is preparing to record a new CD and has just completed a book on songwriting called A Singer/Songwriter’s Guide To Songwriting.
She is currently touring with variations of her rock band and with lots of new songs she is getting ready to record. The songs this time are more on the rock edge.
