Born and raised in Pittsburg, Kansas, Jenn Schott was destined to have a career in music. It's in her genes. Her grandfather was the concert master violinist for the CBS orchestra including the Ed Sullivan show, her father was a university professor of woodwinds, and her mother is a flutist. So it isn't a surprise that from a very young age, Jenn took an interest in all things musical. She studied piano for over ten years and performed in over 15 musical theater productions while she was growing up.
After graduating with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri, Jenn moved to Nashville to pursue a career as a songwriter. Since then, artists including Tim McGraw, The Eli Young Band, Jana Kramer, Eden's Edge, Restless Heart, Lonestar, Gloriana, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jennette McCurdy, and pop band A Rocket To The Moon have recorded her songs. Jenn has had singles released by Restless Heart, with "Feel My Way To You", Katie Armiger's "Unseen," Billy Ray Cyrus' "A Good Day," and pop artist Lucy Walsh's "1882." In addition to her success in the U.S. country market, Jenn has also had songs released by top-selling artists in Canada and Australia.
Jenn is a skilled acoustic guitar player and has played on the road with recording artists Lila McCann & Mallary Hope. She's also lent her voice to several albums including those of Universal South recording artist Ashley Ray & Canadian country artist Jessie Farrell. Jenn is a 2011 alum of Leadership Music and sits on the Board of Directors for the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) & Girls on the Run Nashville
