Welcome to JennyDMusic

My name is Jenny Dinh, also well known as JennyD, from Lake In The Hills, IL. I taught myself how to play the guitar and the ukulele. I've played live shows from coffee shops, restaurants, to local theatres. I held a regular weekly gig at PotBelly in Algonquin, IL , I love to sing and cover a variety of songs from oldies to pop to indie, etc. I also write originals of my own which have been selected to be played on the internet radio stations. I was nominated for Best Folk/Acoustic and Best Female Vocal Artist-Hollywood Music In Media Awards 2012. Also was nominated for Best Singer/Songwriter and Best Folk/Acoustic Artist – All Indie Music Awards. I have been selected to receive The Kidzapalooza Scholarship to attend Berklee's Five Week Summer Performance Program 2012. This is a full tuition scholarship awarded annually to a talented young pop/rock musician from the Chicago area. Through the last couple of years, my passion for music has brought out the best in me, and it makes me smile to know that others enjoy my singing and I hope you do too!!

When I was thirteen, I first heard the song I Will Follow you into the Dark by Deathcab for Cutie, and I thought the guitar sounded so beautiful that I just had to learn how to play it. I looked down at my hands and thought there are six strings on the guitar and I only have five fingers, I had no idea what I was doing. By searching the internet and youtube.com for tutorials, I taught myself how to play the guitar. This was when I started singing seriously. I outgrew my stage fright through many open-mic nights and shows and from the encouragement of my family and friends.

I had always been a big fan of Taylor Swift; she inspired me to write songs about my own life. I would sit in my room, spill my feelings out onto a notebook, and melodies would just pop into my head. It is always such a rush when I finish a new song, like an accomplished feeling inside me, and that is what keeps me writing. My mom, who is also my biggest supporter, has encouraged me the most in my life. She has found numerous gigs and singing jobs for me. With such supportive fans, friends, and family by my side, my music has come such a long way, and one day I hope to land a record deal and make them proud.
