Andover, MA––It’s been a busy summer for guitarist Jennifer Batten. Best known for her exceptional work with Michael Jackson and Jeff Beck, Jennifer has just wrapped up a 26-city Sam Ash clinic tour in support of Fishman’s TriplePlay Wireless MIDI Controller for guitar. She was also recently installed in Guitar Player Magazine’s “Gallery of the Greats.”
Over three months this summer, Jennifer visited Sam Ash locations across the country, meeting with fans, educating store personnel and spreading her gospel on creativity, the creative process and more.
“The TriplePlay really changed my life with regard to guitar,” she reports. “It tracks perfectly, is wireless and comes preloaded with tons of great sounds. Many guitarists have been scared about MIDI, but they really don’t understand the difference between a controller and the more-common closed system type guitar synths. When they see that the sounds from TriplePlay are literally infinite…their minds are blown. Good fun.”
In her Gallery of the Greats Hall of Fame induction, Guitar Player honored Jennifer by writing, “Jennifer’s constant inventiveness, artistic curiosity, and drive make her not only one of Guitar Player’s greats, but also a guitarist that musicians of all styles should study and absorb.”
Interest in Jennifer and her approach to music and guitar is extremely high, Fishman founder Larry Fishman states, “Premier Guitar recently put up a video of Jennifer and her rig. In just the first 24 hours, there were over 3,000 views! Her talents as both a player and communicator figured strongly in our decision to invite her to represent TriplePlay at the 2016 Winter NAMM Show. She’s a special talent.”
