MY NAME IS JEN VAGIOS: I'M A singer, musician & AN orchestrator.
I artfully lead Kirtan, Sound Baths and Special live music events.
I'm a A New York native and I grew up in a household filled with music where my dads band rehearsed in the family basement and I would tag along (whenever permitted) to all of his local gigs. A diversity of music- everything from U2, The Eagles to Allison Kraus were always part of the soundtrack of my life growing up.
I began to play the piano by ear as a small child and eventually trained to read music for piano, voice, oboe and flute. This led to playing guitar and naturally, the harmonium, tibetan bowls, crystal bowls, African drums...and the list continues! My path in music has always been organic. In an effort to express myself as an artist, I sang in collegiate A Capella at the University of Maryland, and even worked as a wedding singer (yep, just like the movie!).
Fully realizing my desire to perform and share my gifts, I now collaborate with select yoga teachers incorporating sound and music for workshops, yoga classes and special events. My own unique Sound Baths sell out regularly, and I occasionally lead Kirtan in my yoga classes. You can learn more about yoga with me here.
Me quoting myself here “I’ve never felt more alive, lit up and truly joyful than when I’m singing music/kirtan and sharing it with others. The meaning of the mantras and the way they affect your mind, body and soul is so outrageously powerful, that it's a blessing to share”.
I've been told,"Jennifer’s vocal range is matched only by the variety of instruments she has mastered since childhood."
My most recent event, opening for Sarah & Alan Finger’s Winter Solstice Sankalpa with Deepak Chopra at ABC Carpet & Home, was a truly a treat. If you missed it, you can watch here. I also finished up 2017 collaborating with Melissa Jhunja of YogaWorks and Rebecca Soule at ISHTA Yoga . My sound baths at Hastings Yoga , Breathe Salt Rooms to kick off 2018 are currently sold out and often sell out.
