    Jenny Owen Youngs (born November 22, 1981) is an American singer-songwriter from Montclair, New Jersey

    Youngs played the flute in elementary school and the tuba in junior high school. At 14, she began to play the guitar.[2] She graduated from State University of New York at Purchase with a degree in studio composition.

    Her album Batten the Hatches was self-released in 2005. In 2006, a song from that album, "Fuck Was I", appeared in the second season premiere of Showtime's Weeds, resulting in Batten the Hatches being re-released on April 10, 2007 with new artwork and an extra track ("Drinking Song")[3] on the Canadian indie label Nettwerk. "Fuck Was I" was also released on Weeds: Music from the Original Series, Vol. 2.

    In addition to her solo career, she is in the band The Robot Explosion, a side project with fellow musicians and friends Bess Rogers, Andrew Futral, and Saul Simon-MacWilliams. She also takes part in an online Podcast through myspace with Bess Rogers and Andrew Futral, titled 'Once More With Feeling' (named after the musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer).

    Youngs recently toured with Vienna Teng, opening for the singer on the Green Caravan Tour. Also, she supported Aimee Mann at London's indigO2 on 27 July 2007. Youngs more recently toured with Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket in August 2007, and is currently co-headlining a U.S. tour with Sean Hayes. She traveled to cities in Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden in November and December.

    Youngs has additionally stated that after completing her European tour, she intends to take three months off from touring to write songs for a new album.
