There’s a rising jewel amongst the DMV that will sooth the studios and stages, and slay the runway and magazines. Please meet Jennifer Dunston!
Jennifer, who has migrated to the D(M)V area within recent years, is a multi-talented artist, who spans both the music and fashion genres. On the music scene, she has been known as a lead vocalist for the band, Sound Connection. She has also recently been working on her solo efforts (including her new single called “Get Lit“, which will be launching really soon), as well as covers of a few recent hits, such as “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys (http://m.soundcloud.com/jenniferdunston/girl-on-fire-alicia-keys) and “Thinkin’ Bout You” by Frank Ocean (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LM7CTMl2bIo&feature=youtube_gdata_player).
On the fashion scene, Jennifer has also been a sought after model. She has been a finalist in the competition to find “the face” of newly releasing local hair care line, House of Bombshell. She has also worked with local veteran photographer, Roy Cox.
Check out more of what Jennifer has to say about her talents:
Q: What part of the DMV are you reppin’?
A: I‘m originally from Providence Rhode Island, but for now Maryland is home.
Q: What influenced you to engage in your talents/gifts?
A: Every Sunday I sung in the children’s choir and growing up I was inspired by the great Whitney Houston. I just love to sing and I have always had a passion for music!
Q: How has your community influenced you, and vice versa?
A: I have been influenced by individuals in the community but not by the community as a whole. Maybe as time passes that will change.
Q: If there’s anything that you would want your peers & supporters to know about you (assuming that they don’t already), what would it be?
A: I wanted to be a Kindergarten or 1st grade teacher.
Q: Which do you prefer, music or fashion? Why?
A: Music! Music is my heart and it is second nature to me. Fashion is fun for me!
Q: What’s next?!
A: My new single, “Get Lit“, will be released this month, and my EP, Get to Know Me, is forthcoming this fall. “Get to Know Me” more by visiting my new website that will launch on September 19, 2014 at: www.jenniferdunston.com.
