Jennifer Leigh and Bob Henderson are a soulful, father-daughter duo from the bootheel of Southeast Missouri.
With influences ranging from country to funk to the blues greats, Jennifer and Bob have a natural chemistry that is hard to find these days. Jennifer began singing with her dad at a very early age and quickly turned into a pint-sized Etta James by the age of 2.
With Bob playing guitar and Jennifer singing, it was very obvious that these two would be making music together for a long time. Bob started playing bass with is first band, “Sons of Liberty” in 1970 (covering music from CCR, Steppenwolf and The Guess Who) and solidified himself as not only a great bass player, but singer as well.
Jennifer moved to Kansas City, Mo at the age of 10 and that is where her love for country and blues music began. Since moving to the Nashville area in 2010, Jennifer has worked with some of the best songwriters and producers in Music City as well as taking the stage with one of her childhood idols, Suzy Bogguss, at the Nashville Antiques and Garden Show.
In 2006, Jennifer’s daughter was born and quickly started following in her mom’s footsteps. Cadence joins Jennifer and Bob on stage whenever she can (she gladly accepts tips) and it doesn’t take long to see that she was born for the stage as well.
Something magical always happens when all 3 generations are under the lights together.
