Drawing on her dynamic, eclectic background as an actor, dancer, choreographer, creative director, entrepreneur, branding expert and performance coach for singers, dancers, actors and performers, Jenn David has become one of the most in demand live show producers in the entertainment industry.
Since moving to Nashville in 2013, she has worked closely with recording artists and performers in a wide range of genres, taking their stage presentations to fresh and exciting levels while helping create memorable moments that foster connection and intimacy between artists and their audiences. She has collaborated with a clientele that runs the gamut from upstart independent artists to high profile performers from The Disney Channel, The Voice, America’s Got Talent, American Idol, BET, FOX and Broadway. Jennifer is recognized by the Continental Who’s Who and the National Association of Professional Women, for her outstanding excellence and dedication to her profession and the achievement of women.
In collaborating with many creative artists, Jennifer has produced everything from one time showcases, major concert tours, and music videos. Based on their specific vibe, persona and needs as a performer, she coaches them on everything from song arrangements and set list flow, choreography and placement onstage to stage treatments and color schemes, lighting and delivery of anecdotes introducing songs. Her intense acting studies earlier in her career now drive her passion for helping artists emotionally connect with and fully engage their audiences. Every key creative moment by moment decision is crucial, she believes, to creating lifelong devoted fans.
“In the same way that a record producer’s task is to bring out the best and deepest emotional parts of an artist in the studio, my role as a live show producer is finding exciting ways for their audience to connect on a moment to moment basis,” Jennifer says. “Essentially, artists are up there to take their audience on a journey, and my job is to oversee and coordinate every aspect of their show and bring everything together to give their audience the best experience of their lives. I dedicate myself to getting to know the artist as a person, and that includes understanding their insecurities and setbacks. The goal is using every tool available, from their positioning in a small room to going through each line of a song, to help bring out their authenticity and ensure they touch the hearts and souls of their fans.”
Jennifer’s passion for helping take raw young talent to the next creative level inspired her to launch J.L. David Talent, a full-service creative talent agency. She and her team of industry professionals work together to develop, brand and represent quality talent from each potential demographic. Her aim is to cultivate long term careers through positive, significant exposure and collaborations with top international publication, production and brand teams.
“I’ve truly enjoy every single person I work with,” Jennifer says. “I love people and developing relationships, and everything I’ve done in my life is based on building those and continuing them far beyond the job I am hired to do at any given time.
My overall vision is for art to continue to change lives, and to create experiences that are not only unforgettable but transcend the joy and fun of any given moment or show. It’s about far more than selling tickets or merchandise. As a live show producer and talent agent, I’m there to draw upon multiple resources to literally create the best art in the world.”
