Jenni Rumer was born in the Ohio River Valley bordering the Appalachian area of the United States, where many great voices come from. She grew up listening to old time Country and Bluegrass music. She entered the, "You Can Be A Star" competition as a teenager and was honored to win the runner up position. That took her to many events where she showcased her unique talents including, the Sammy Davis Jr. Telethon where she shared the stage with greats like Tony Bennett,  Mickey Gilley, and many others. From that point on Jenni began singing everywhere she could.

During this time she formed her own Bluegrass band, The Jenni Lyn Band. Using her middle name, Jenni signed her first international recording deal while showcasing at the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) awards. She was later nominated twice for Entertainer of the Year and once for a European  Grammy Award, all by the IBMA. Jenni traveled much of the United States with her Bluegrass band during which time she was able to meet many people in the Country Western field and consequently switched over to Country music.

Shortly afterward, Jenni was approached by Walter Haynes, the Vice-President of MCA Records, after he heard a demo recording of her. He introduced her to many greats such as Les Ladd (Producer/Engineer for Warner Bros Records), Hoot Hester, legendary fiddle player for the Grand Ole Opry, and the great Time Jumpers band. Jenni fronted for the Time Jumpers at the famous Station Inn in Nashville and then returned with her band to perform in concert there as well.

Jenni began extensively touring both the East and West coasts of the U.S. along with performances in Branson, the popular Cowboy clubs and dance halls across the country.

Jenni is being produced and managed by Texas Western Swing Hall of Famer, Grammy winner, Film Festival musical award winner, Bobby Flores. Jenni has already toured much of Texas and surrounding states and has performed in many of their elite venues.

Her new CD, produced at BAM Recording Studios in San Antonio, features an impressive collection of songs penned by her and her husband, Dan Rumer and will soon be released on the exceptional RD Music record label. Jenni's new CD is sure to turn heads and is her best work yet!

Jenni proudly resides in the Great State of Texas and is bringing her powerful vocals and exciting Country music show to the world! Look for her soon!!
