Raw, real emotions and struggles inspire pop, gospel, soul artist, Jenn Bostic, to write music that her fans can relate to.
Connecting with fans seems to come easy for Jenn Bostic. Her music is unpredictable and she isn’t afraid to follow her heart in the music she creates. In her most recent album, Revival, she openly shared the struggles she faced when chasing her dreams and focuses on the hard work, the pain and the outcome. In a world where playing the highlight reel is mainstream, Jenn isn’t afraid to keep it real as an independent artist. In fact, Revival has nominated her for International Touring Artist of The Year, International Album of The Year and International Song of The Year at the British Country Music Association Awards.
