Jenny Burton

b. a.k.a. Jeanne Burton, 18th November 1957, New York, New York State, U.S.A.

Jenny Burton was born in New York and raised as a foster child.

She became interested in the music business whilst still at high school.

By 1970, she had become a receptionist at the Bell Record Company.

At one recording session there, the producer required a singer and Jenny volunteered.

This led to a recording contract at Cotton Records.

Here she released one single entitled 'Nobody Loves Me Like I Do', a duet with Dooley Silverspoon, and various chores as a background singer.

In 1983 she recorded a single with the group C-Bank, entitled 'One More Shot', which led to a deal at Atlantic Records.

Jenny then married Peter Link, who was a major figure in the theatre world.

Peter was a songwriter and owned his own recording studio and publishing company.
