STRANGE BEGINNINGS available everywhere NOW!


Rock Garden Records releases the debut album from Jennifer Tefft & The Strange!

“This is the first release from the new version of my band – so we are introducing The Strange with this release!” Tefft says. “I am so proud of these songs and how the band really found its creative voice; everyone contributed their artistic vision to this work and I think it really elevated the songs. We also were able to work with Bob St. John which took us to new heights sonically while really tapping into our own personal creative identities.” (Jenn)


"It’s the stellar songwriting from Tefft, the all around musicianship of “The Strange” (More on the band later), the diversity of styles represented across the 8 tracks within, and that’s just barely scratching the surface of what makes Strange Beginnings so solid." (Rock & Roll Fables)

"Strange Beginnings  is an album that celebrates what came before. Jennifer Tefft and the Strange do it with all they've got and that comes across no little. This is an extremely strong album providing the band with that "second chance to burn", Tefft sings about in 'Second Chance'. By the time the other single 'Going Out' comes by with its The Black Keys rhythm, combining it with punkrock/pop in a Blondie style, I'm floored. This album that took me by storm.

"One of the album’s standouts is “Going Out,” a dive bar cougar jam!" (Worcester Magazine)





A hard-hitting rock and roller, Jennifer Tefft is known for her "earnest lyrics delivered with both power and grace".

Whether performing with her band or solo, Jennifer is always an energizing force — skillfully creating earthy music from its roots and breathing fresh, soulful, rock and roll life into them.

With five albums under her belt and most recently several single releases leading up to new projects coming out in 2024, Jennifer's music combines intense rhythms with melancholy textures and haunting vocals that wind easily from darkly ethereal to outspoken, creating her own brand of Gritty-Lush Alternative Rock.  Read full bio.

 "“Her earnest lyrics are delivered with both power and grace. Where some singers are compared to wine or whiskey, Jennifer’s voice is like a deep cordial that needs to be savored sip by sip.

Her style has an edge that has not gone dull over the years and her newest songs, especially after the pandemic, are stand-outs in the Boston music scene. "
