Haley is determined to keep singing for as long as they’re legally allowed to. Based in Dorchester, Haley came into the world of harmony singing by way of The Midwinter Revels. Haley works in the travel industry, and once led the staff of a Mongolian camp resort in a chorus of “Wild Mountain Thyme.” In addition to the Crooked Mowth discography, you can also hear Haley’s voice on the album You Must Believe Me by songsmith April Grant.
Singing is a lifeline for Jennie. She has been singing ever since she can remember…staging shows in the living room while listening to her parents’ Broadway musical albums. Jennie sings as a regular soloist for Greater Boston area churches, and recently premiered a series of newly composed songs with texts by Emily Dickinson. Jennie has sung with several choruses and ensembles in Greater Boston and MetroWest areas. She also teaches music in a variety of settings, with a specialization in working with persons with visual impairment. Singing with Crooked Mowth, Jennie is able to bring all her experiences together and can’t wait for new ones.

Singing also creates a good life balance with Jim’s principal job as a Boston-area attorney, representing business as outside general counsel. If only writing contracts was as fun as writing lyrics…
