At 20, Jeannine graduated magna cum laude from Berklee College of Music, having studied with some of the best in the business (Gabrielle Goodman, Pat Pattison, Livingston Taylor). For two consecutive years, she won both the Berklee Singer/Songwriter and Songwriting Showcase competitions. She was chosen as the recipient of the Frank E. Remick and E. Ione Lockwood awards for excellence in music and vocal performance, and was honored with the Susan Glover Hitchcock scholarship for outstanding musicianship. Upon graduation, Jeannine received the Scott Benson scholarship for performing songwriters - the highest honor in the Berklee songwriting department.
Jeannine has been seen both as a singer and songwriter at many a famous venue in the Northeast including: Scullers, The Ragatta Bar, The Middle East, Harper's Ferry, The Berklee Performance Center, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, Don Hill's, and Galapagos Art Space, and many more. She's appeared with jazz legends Ben Monder, Clarence Penn, James Genus, and Tim Ries, and has served as an opening act for two-time grammy nominee Tracy Bonham.
Jeannine’s debut EP of original songs, “Too Late to Change Me”, was released in March of 2007, and has received national attention and acclaim. The songs, while roughly categorized as pop/rock, borrow influence from blues, jazz, R&B and soul. Comparisons have been made to Fiona Apple, Laura Nyro, Carole King, and Norah Jones. The EP has been described as “music like we have not heard in many, many years”, and is “truly reminiscent of the styles of foundational, outstanding songwriters.” - Noah Fleischman (WOR NYC radio producer).
The 24 year old’s original compositions and jazz singing projects can be heard on the Boston College Show "The BC", and on many area radio stations, including Boston's famed WGBH. Jeannine has appeared as a frequent guest on New York television and radio - as a performer on the Joey Reynold’s Show (a long-running hit talk show on New York’s WOR) , and “Metro Elvis” (a weekly Manhattan program featuring up-and-coming artists).
In 2008, a video of Hebb's song “Just Enough for Me”, was picked to appear as a sample video on the newest line of video/mp3 players released by Coby Electonics. Last October, her EP was featured on the cover of Discmakers - the nation's leading provider of CD duplication and manufacturing services.
