Jennifer Trynin (born 1963), is an American singer-songwriter and author from Boston, Massachusetts.She recorded her debut album Cockamamie in 1994 while running her own desktop publishing business. The track "Better Than Nothing" received considerable airplay on alternative rock radio stations across the United States. She later released her second album, Gun Shy Trigger Happy, in 1997. Trynin would later release a book entitled Everything I'm Cracked Up to Be in 2006 about her experience in the music industry. Trynin played guitar for Dave Wanamaker's band Loveless, who released an album, Gift to the World, in 2003. After Loveless broke up, she took a break from music to raise her daughter. In 2015, Trynin formed the band Cujo and began playing semi-regularly at small clubs in and around Boston. In 2018, Trynin joined Band of Their Own, an all-female supergroup formed to perform at Hot Stove Cool Music, the annual benefit show supporting the Foundation to be Named Later, the charity established by former Boston Red Sox and current Chicago Cubs executive Theo Epstein and his twin brother Paul Epstein. Band of Their Own also features among others Kay Hanley, Freda Love Smith, Tanya Donelly, Gail Greenwood, Magen Tracy, and Jennifer D'Angora. In keeping with the baseball and all-female theme, they chose the name "Band of Their Own" as a tribute to the documentary and subsequent film A League of Their Own about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League; the band's logo, designed by Greenwood, is modeled off of the logo of the AAGPBL.
