Jennifer Eckes

Jennifer Eckes (she/her) has been singing professionally in the Twin Cities area for over two decades, whether on stage in theatrical productions or as a soloist in concerts and cabarets.  In the theatre/stage realm, she has sung with companies including Ordway Center, Artistry Theater, Plymouth Playhouse, Skylark Opera, the Minnesota Opera, and many others.

As a versatile vocalist, she has found many musical revues, concerts and cabaret opportunities throughout the region, at venues such as the Bloomington Center for the Arts, Hastings Arts Center, Hanifl Performing Arts Center, Bryant-Lake Bowl, Honey lounge, Crooners, Brix Music Café, and the Nicollet Island Inn.

Her voice has been called "crystalline" and "rock solid", by reviewers, often praised for her warm stage presence and her “engaging gift for song”. Jennifer holds a vocal performance degree from Luther College and has twice been a fellow of the Cabaret Conference at Yale University. She is a founding member of the Twin Cities Cabaret Artists Network and particularly loves telling the story of a well-written song, using humor and honesty to reach the audience on a personal level.
