The buzz on Jennifer Batten rose from the guitar underground, gaining notoriety from guitar magazines chronicling her savvy musicianship & highly original approach to electric guitar. Her solo work spans a variety of sounds, from rock to world beat to electronica, but she’s probably best known for the music legends with whom she’s collaborated.
In 1987, Jennifer was selected from over 100 guitarists to join Michael Jackson’s touring band and spent the next 10 years performing around the globe in support of the BAD, DANGEROUS, and HISTORY releases. During that time, Jennifer appeared with Jackson in the Superbowl XXVI half time show, the largest TV viewing audience in history.
The rigors of touring led to Jennifer create a project that would enable her to spend less time on the road while still sharing her gifts. Jennifer Batten and Full Steam includes top-notch musicians from her adopted hometown Portland, Oregon performing a danceable mix of pop/rock covers from artists including Michael Jackson, Prince, Hall & Oates, Huey Lewis, Toto, Van Halen & more.
