Ton Jenner

Ton Jenner is a singer-songwriter from Zoetermeer, writing melodic songs with a personal touch. Influences range from all time artists like Dan Fogelberg and Bruce Springsteen to nowadays singer-songwriters like Josh Rouse and Josh Ritter.

Ton has published a number of demo EP’s, showing the development towards a more Americana sound. Songs from “What’s next” (2000), “Speak freely” (2002) and “Back” (2005) were broadcasted on local radio. A new demo EP “Telling stories” will follow later in 2006.

For recording Ton has a home studio, the Palmwood Studio, based on Apple Logic Pro. There he works often in cooperation with friend musicians, like pianist/singer Jim Offerman. Songs are furthermore filled with sample drums and synth. If you are interested in the facilities of the Palmwood Studio, just drop a mail.

Ton also writes songs for others, like in the project A LOAN: writer Irma Leenman asked Ton, after visiting his website, to write music to her beautiful lyrics. The songs are sung by Susanne de Heij, Yolanda Jenner and Ton as well; a demo EP will be published in September 2006.

On stage, Ton mostly plays a solo acoustic set. Appearances were at several regional theaters and podia as well as on RTV Rijswijk. The membership of the Den Haag Songwriters Guild offers further opportunities to work with and learn from other musicians.
