About Jennifer Batten and Full Steam

Jennifer Batten and Full Steam

The buzz on Jennifer Batten rose from the guitar underground, gaining notoriety from guitar magazines chronicling her savvy musicianship & highly original approach to electric guitar. Her solo work spans a variety of sounds, from rock to world beat to electronica, but she’s probably best known for the music legends with whom she’s collaborated.

In 1987, Jennifer was selected from over 100 guitarists to join Michael Jackson’s touring band and spent the next 10 years performing around the globe in support of the BAD, DANGEROUS, and HISTORY releases. During that time, Jennifer appeared with Jackson in the Superbowl XXVI half time show, the largest TV viewing audience in history.

Between Jackson tours, Jennifer released two albums, ABOVE, BELOW AND BEYOND and MOMENTUM, which led to an invitation from British guitar icon Jeff Beck to join his band 1998. She appeared on Beck’s WHO ELSE and YOU HAD IT COMING albums and both supporting world tours, including the concerts documented in the JEFF BECK LIVE IN TOKYO 1999 DVD release.

More recently, Batten has toured worldwide with her solo multimedia show, held guitar residency for the Cirque Du Soleil show “Zumanity” in Las Vegas, authored 2 books, 3 instructional DVD’s, and has hosted thousands of music workshops. She’s received the She Rocks “Icon” award and has been inducted into Guitar Player Magazine’s “Gallery of the Greats.”

The rigors of touring led to Jennifer create a project that would enable her to spend less time on the road while still sharing her gifts. Jennifer Batten and Full Steam includes top-notch musicians from her adopted hometown Portland, Oregon performing a danceable mix of pop/rock covers from artists including Michael Jackson, Prince, Hall & Oates, Huey Lewis, Toto, Van Halen & more.
