Jenny Boyle warms up the holiday season for U.S. troops in Europe. Premiere rocker and international entertainer to tour with Armed Forces Entertainment
Armed with a blend of sultry sound and smooth guitar compilations, Jenny Boyle will perform for troops stationed in Europe during the holiday season Nov. 15-Dec. 12. Hailing from Washington D.C., the 26-year-old entertainer is known for being one of the sweetest rock stars to hit the international scene. “I am so proud to be an American and I so admire our troops for the sacrifices they make to protect our freedoms,” said Boyle. “I wanted to do something to show them how much they are loved and appreciated and to serve our country the only way I know how.”
Boyle recently released her first full-length album titled Life in Mosaic, which is available at most base exchanges supported by Army and Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) Boyle is the first Armed Forces Entertainment artist to have CDs available for purchase through AAFES.
Boyle’s band has been together for almost 10 years and is considered one of Armed Forces Entertainment’s touring veterans. In addition to being an entertainer, Boyle is a registered nurse. She combined her two passions of healing and music by performing for wounded troops at the Walter Reed Army Hospital, which she considers to be one of her greatest achievements.
“Boyle’s strong voice and unprecedented style are what makes her performances stellar and truly entertaining for the troops,” said Marine Captain Jesse Davidson, Armed Forces Entertainment Europe circuit manager. “We are also excited about the opportunity for troops overseas to have access to Jenny’s CD. Up-and-comers like Jenny offer great music, but troops usually have to order CDs through the artist while they are at the base, then wait weeks for it come in the mail. AAFES is making it a lot easier for troops to get our artists’ music” .
