Daniels AND Martha's
Alongside husband Jeff Neal, who contributes tasteful guitar
and mandolin support, Jennifer Daniels first caught
the attention of music fans in live settings—beginning in 1999—with
her supple, dynamic voice and physical, absorbing delivery. It began
in time-honored, grassroots fashion, with gigs in Chattanooga, Tennessee—just
down the mountain from home—then short forays around the southeastern
U.S. and then regular hauls up and down the East Coast and, finally,
jaunts across the country, with as many as 200 dates each year.
Founding band/soul mates Jen and Rob Slocumb (Martha's Trouble)
met 23 years ago with a twist of fate inside a Houston, Texas, coffee
shop where Jen worked booking bands. Rob was home to see his parents
after a music venture fizzled. It started as a simple bond over music.
Time led them to realize it was something much more. The two fell
in love and were married. The duo now lives in Auburn, AL. Not exactly
where they pictured themselves, but they wouldn’t give it up.
Jen, from Ontario, Canada, and Rob, from Nashville, TN, are sure they’re
where they are supposed to be. Everything the couple has done has
been in pursuit of a musical dream, one that, so far, has paid off.
