A "born singer," Jen Creed began her lifelong study of music at the age of five. Awarded full scholarships to both 

high school and university, she graduated summa cum laude from The Catholic University of America with dual

degrees in Voice Performance and Mathematics. Throughout her musical career, her infectious spirit and

spellbinding voice – at home on Broadway, in pop, jazz, crossover, and classical music – have wowed both critics

and audiences throughout the world.

When a vocal injury in 2003 resulted in surgeries and years of rehabilitation, Jen left the music behind and vowed to

help others with similar setbacks. Uniting her passions for philanthropy and music, she accepted a fellowship in

voice medicine by world-renowned voice surgeon, Dr. Robert Sataloff, and was named executive director of the international non-profit organization, the Voice Foundation. Today Jen continues to serve on the Board of Directors.

Returning to the stage and studio in 2010, Jen released her highly-

acclaimed debut album, Goodnight Is Not Goodbye, produced by

Grammy winner, Glenn Barratt. On the album, Jen’s magnificent

four-octave range is showcased in dramatic original material, as

well as in intimate interpretations of contemporary writers

including Van Morrison and Bruce Springsteen.

“I’ve always thought that it was important to be versatile,“ Jen

says of combining her classical training with contemporary song 

selections. “Music in all forms moves me, and from an early age

I didn’t want to pigeonhole myself into one genre only. It’s all

so important.”

Jonathan Takiff of the Philadelphia Daily News praised Jen and

the album:

"With a gorgeous four-octave voice, impeccable taste and flair, 

Jen Creed can do it all, from pop to Broadway, classical to spirit

music. And she pretty much does, on her classy new Goodnight

Is Not Goodbye album...She is the real deal..."

Several songs from Goodnight Is Not Goodbye have been featured 

on Triple-A radio stations nationwide and in the US Virgin Islands. 

A fan favorite on WXPN in Philadelphia, Jen has sold out multiple 

Philadelphia-area venues, and has been chosen as the opening act for

popular artists such as Annie Haslam and Javier Colon, winner of the

inaugural season of NBC’s The Voice

Following the success of Goodnight Is Not Goodbye, Jen originated a

first-of-its-kind monthly supper club in Philadelphia where she wrote and

performed a cabaret-style show to rave reviews and full houses. In 2013 

she released her two original holiday singles, “The Hush” and “It’s

Christmas,” again produced by Grammy winner, Glenn Barratt. Her

robust annual performance schedule includes 75+ solo concerts,

weddings, corporate events, charitable functions and community 

gatherings. As well, Jen is frequently called upon as an Anthemist

for professional sports teams, charity events, races and marathons.

From 2014 to 2016 she enjoyed being the artist in residence at L'etage,

Philadephia's famed cabaret stage.

Jen believes that music is therapy, healing and unifying individuals

and the world. She joined forces with the Musicians on Call program,

bringing her voice to hospital bedsides in the Philadelphia area. She

served as executive director of musical theater at Merion Mercy

Academy High School in Merion Station, PA, and directed the

Avalon Players, a children's summer theatre program, for five seasons. 

She continues to be a highly sought-out vocal coach, with a full roster of

children and young adult singers  in the Philadelphia area, and is a

staff cantor at Old Saint Mary's Church in Philadelphia.  Jen is grateful

to be the 2015 recipient of the Trocaire Alumnae Leadership Award

from her alma mater, Gwynedd-Mercy Academy High School. She is

the proud wife of Philadelphia 76ers stalwart Scott Rego, and her

greatest role is that of mom to their two young children, Matteo and Mira.
