Jaylen Green got her musical start in San Diego, CA as co-front woman of the alternative hip-hop band afterschoolspecial which quickly became a nationally performing act. Craving her own sound, she started writing music influenced by soulful singer-songwriters like Fiona Apple and Bonnie Raitt, then blending that with tension driven alternative rock guitars and drums.
Fiercely emotive and dynamic, her live sound is a blend of haunting melodic richness and rhythmically edgy grooves. Whether performing solo or with a full band, its not hard to get drawn in. Now residing in artistically rich city of Chicago, she performs and records regularly with various projects locally and internationally.
