Jenn Tatro, Card Catalog
Jenn Tatro was born in Augusta, Kansas, and began singing when she was five. Under the guidance of her mother, she began performing live in pageants. She then began taking singing and guitar lessons in Kansas. After moving to Boulder in 2005, she paired up with Lee Johnson, a singer songwriter in the Foothills area. From there, she began co-writing songs with him and then branched out on her own. She started writing her own songs and formed a band by the name of Card Catalog. On a whim, they decided to enter into the Boulder Chamber Battle of the Industry Bands at eTown, where they won first place last year.
You’ll find her currently winding down a tour with her band, and they are very excited to get back into the studio to finish recording their first album. It will have all of their original tunes (on it), tracked to tape, at World Famous Studio in Colorado.
Jenn will return as a judge for this year’s Battle of the Industry Bands on September 26.
Why is being in a band awesome?
We Get to create. We are a family. We work towards a common goal. We get to hang out with each other. We just love each other! It’s a pleasure to make music with those you love, have fun and get along with.
Softball, going to shows, hanging with friends and family, biking
