Welcome to Jen on the Brazos!

Welcome to Jen on the Brazos, a blog about the music and people of the Brazos River. We have a unique creative culture along the Brazos and this blog is dedicated to the creators of it: musicians, artists, venue owners and all the other folks who keep it thriving.
Jen on the Brazos (J.O.B.) will post a weekly music calendar and information about artists. I’ll post interviews (text and video), and music samples (if provided) of targeted artists each week.  J.O.B. will post follow up blogs of special events that include pics and video that can easily be shared with friends on any social media platform. Links to weekly J.O.B. updates will be posted on Facebook and Twitter; you can also subscribe directly via email or RSS feed.  
The main focus of J.O.B. will be the Brazos mates that comprise the music and art scene in the Freeport, Clute, Lake Jackson, Surfside, Anlgeton, area.
I’ve lived in Freeport all of my life. I grew up across the street from St. Mary’s Catholic Church on 7th street. My family name is Fields and if you don’t know me, you probably know at least one of my 10 siblings. But all of us here are part of a larger family…the Brazos family and we share a special bond. I’m here to celebrate the small town heritage that forged our uncommon commonality. Expect lots of humor, fun-poking, pics, video, and information!
