Since 2002, Jen Majura, a native from Stuttgart/Germany, has been a professional musician. Meanwhile, the guitarist and singer can not only loock back to a range of studio jobs with well-known bands from the rock and heavy metal area and global publications with renowned bands such as Blind Guardian, but also to live performances and television appearances (RTL Chart Show, Kabel 1 "70,000 Tons Of Metal", KIKA "Your Song") and live streaming of festivals such as Hellfest or Wacken.

Even European tour experience as with artists like TM Stevens or bands like Rage are on record. In early 2007 Jen appeared on the sampler "Into the Light" for the record label Nuclear Blast’s 20th anniversary as a duet with singer Mats Leven (ex-Therion) for the song "Death Is Alive“. More worldwide releases followed as backing vocalist for Rage on the albums "Carved in Stone" and "Strings To A Web”. In spring 2009, Jen Majura founded the AC/DC tribute band "Black Thunder Ladies", which would become one of the most powerful AC/DC Ladies Tribute bands of all time.

As Jen Majura is highly demanded at the professional level both as a guitarist and as a singer, more and more professional bands were attentive to the young musician’s talent. Hence, in summer of 2012, Jen became guest guitarist in the Berlin based band Knorkator with whom she can already look back on two live DVDs, one album and numerous festival appearances.

In January 2014 Jen took over the Music School Brilon which she successfully manages in the small town of Brilon in North Rhine-Westphalia since. The music school has earned a positive reputation by Jen’s powerful modern commitment for innovation and offers lessons in guitar (Axxis guitarist Stefan Weber who is a teacher himself there), drums, bass, keyboard/piano and singing, workshops with guest lecturers on a variety of topics.

In August 2015 it was officially announced that Jen will be new guitarist of the US band Evanescence with whom she toured in North America and Japan in November 2015, e.g. as co-headliner for Korn on Ozzfest in Tokyo.
