jennifer berezan

jennifer berezan Jennifer Berezan is a multi-faceted singer-songwriter, teacher, producer and ritualist who has been performing and recording for the past 20 years.

She has nurtured a loyal international following for her songs of profound depth that tackle contemporary issues with insight and striking melodies.  Her intense and personal approach to music as a transforming experience has brought her strong rapport with audiences from small clubs to large festivals throughout North America and Europe.  Berezan's superb voice and her percussive approach to rhythm and lead guitar playing have won her acclaim from a wide range of critics and fans including avant rocker Henry Kaiser. 

Over the course of five albums, Jennifer has developed and explored recurring themes with a rare wisdom. Her songs confront such universal issues as alienation, transformation, and finding a sense of place in a constantly changing world.  Home is a recurring subject for the Canadian born singer who today calls Berkeley, California home when not on tour. 

Her 1988 debut album In The Eye of The Storm laid the groundwork for what has since become music in a style that then had no label but today is part of  'Americana'.  The more rock oriented Borderlines (on Flying Fish/Rounder Records), was nominated for a 1993 NAIRD award (the Grammy of the independent record industry).  Refuge (1997), her most recent "contemporary folk" album emerged as an audience and critics favorite with it's explorations of acoustic arrangements intertwined with Buddhist and vulnerable personal themes.

She Carries Me (1995) was a departure for Jennifer Berezan into the realm of meditative and trance music.  This album featured special guest Olympia Dukakis in a spoken word part and acclaimed violinist Darol Anger.  The bed of the piece is a multi-layered chant track in honor of the Chinese Goddess Quan Yin, the Tibetan Goddess Tara and a reworking of Jennifer's Catholic past in a rewriting of the Hail Mary.  It continues to sell remarkably well year after year and is a classic in the world of New Age and Women's Spirituality.  It is used by renowned ex Catholic Priest Matthew Fox in his famous rave masses, by Wavy Gravy at Camp Winnirainbow, countless healing centers, hospital surgery rooms, massage therapy offices, the death and dying movement, birthing rituals and for personal meditation and rituals throughout the world.

Jennifer Berezan's lifelong interest in ancient sacred music, healing, and Goddess Spirituality has come to the forefront of her work in recent years.  She travels extensively throughout North America and Europe, performing, leading tours and teaching classes and workshops. She is a member of the Faculty at the California institute of Integral Studies. Her latest recording Returning is an extraordinary and beautiful long playing healing chant to the Mother Of Us All which was recorded in a 6000 year old temple in Malta.
