Jennifer Manges writes and records music for both the Country Pop and Contemporary Christian genres. Value-based, emotionally insightful, and often hope-filled lyrics proliferate her work that is reminiscent of the sound of Martina McBride, mixed with the lighthearted pop flavor of artists like Britt Nicole.
Born and raised in Northern California, Jennifer spent her youth listening to an eclectic mix of artists like Martina McBride, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, New Kids on the Block, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Sandi Patty, Kenneth Cope, Billy Idol, Bobbie Brown and Boys to Men. Listening to multiple genres ultimately influenced her to become the versatile, emotive, and eclectic artist that she is. As she became a young adult her love for country, Christian, and pop music became more pronounced and she began to focus her writing in these genres.
Jennifer began writing music at the age of 15. She also began singing publicly in church meetings around the same time, and occasionally sang in theater productions throughout the years. She married just a few months after high school and had her first child at age 20, putting her musical aspirations on hold, but she never stopped writing. Quite the contrary. Jennifer’s first marriage was long and difficult and she poured her struggles out into song, becoming a prolific writer. With numerous industry pros who mentored her throughout the years, Jennifer became a competent songwriter.
In 2002, Jennifer auditioned and was chosen as a touring vocalist with inVOICE Records on their “One Mind, One Heart” CD release tour. That same year she released her first single “Night of the Lord” under the same label on their Christmas compilation album “Come to Bethlehem”. Jennifer continued to write and perform, as time allowed, while raising her family and homeschooling her three children.
Several years after a divorce, remarriage and blending a family of six kids, Jennifer finally began recording some of her original music in 2018. Her first recordings were “message songs” that she often shared during her speaking events as she served as Ms. Utah US Continental 2011-2013 and as Mrs. US Ambassador 2015. In October 2020 she released her debut country pop single “La La Love” and has released a single each month since, some of which have been self-produced. With a background in professional photography, Jennifer (and her husband) record many of the music videos to her songs. She releases new music monthly, along with occasional offerings of free sheet music and free music downloads on her website. You can visit her and find out more at JenniferManges.com
