Jo asked songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jen Sygit to be a founding member of Stella! in order to showcase another songwriting voice in the group. Jen's vocal style adds deep blues tones, and she brings an arsenal of instrumental talent on acoustic and electric guitar, banjo, dobro and ukelele. Jen has three solo albums to her credit, including her new release, "So Long Pollyanna." "Leaving Marshall Street" was nominated for a 2007 Detroit Music Award and charted at #9 on the Free Form American Roots Chart. Jen also hosts a very successful open mic on Tuesday nights at Dagwoods Tavern in Lansing, Michigan.
Jen "can you dig it" Sygit turned to music after her dreams of becoming a meteorologist never came to fruition.
