Jenni Muldaur (born March 29, 1965, Boston, Massachusetts, United States) is an American blues and folk-rock singer-songwriter. She is the daughter of recording artists Geoff and Maria Muldaur, sister of Clare Muldaur and niece of actress Diana Muldaur. She grew up in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Muldaur's musical career took off when she was 24 when she was asked to join Todd Rundgren's band for a world tour and a subsequent recording. Jenni's vocals soon became sought after and she went on to record with Eric Clapton, Marianne Faithfull, Donald Fagen, Rufus Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Linda Thompson, John Cale, Hole, Richard Barone, and tour with Ronnie Spector, Lou Reed and David Byrne. With deep roots in folk and blues, Jenni expanded her horizons and embraced modern musical styles in collaborations with such punk visionaries as John Cale and Robert Quine.
