Jen Woodhouse returns to perform at the Loft

It's been a while since Jen Woodhouse has been in Columbus.

Fortunately for us, the beautiful Army "brat" will be back, singing at 9 p.m. Friday at the Loft, 1032 Broadway. Tickets are $10; $12 at the door.

Woodhouse, a prolific singer/songwriter, will perform with Adrianne before the Codetalkers take the stage.

She has new double-disc EP out called "The Shaping & Shifting of Objects & Sound, Volumes 1 & 2." It's a blend of jazz, blues, folk and rock, as usual.

Besides touring the country in her car, which she calls "home," Woodhouse has also performed in Canada and England.

"It was my first paying gig ever, the first one to take a chance on me," she said about the Loft. "Playing the Loft is like coming home."
