From spoken word protest music to ritualistic hymns, hip-hop dance grooves to sultry lullabies about love and the cosmos, Jen Myzel’s music is medicine for these times. Her three studio albums and one children's sing-a-long book are created to inspire, activate and soothe all who listen.
'While there are many artists out there making a lot of noise without much to say, you’ll be able to find Jen Myzel’s distinctive sound on the other side of the coin. The Californian artist is perceptibly gifted when it comes to orchestrating uplifting and empowering soundscapes. Not by utilizing abrasively ‘happy’ tones, but meditatively easing you into a better mind space with compellingly conscious lyrical wisdom.' - AnRFactory Music Blog
