Jennifer Spector and Dave Tieman are award-winning songwriters with an easy-breezy style that combine their love of jazz, pop and folk music. Their performances feature David's exceptional musicianship on electric guitar/bass, Jennifer's acoustic guitar, her captivating vocals and their rich harmonies together. The music of The Ginger UPs has a distinctively fun style & classic sound that is both fresh yet timeless. They are international adventure travelers and have toured both regionally and nationally in their 20+ years together as a musical power couple in different incarnations.

Their accolades include a top ten national songwriting finalist at the Telluride Troubadour Competiton and twice a finalist at the Tucson Folk Festival competition. Jennifer received her first Washington State honor at the Tumbleweed Folk Festival in September 2007 as a top finalist and David placed 1st alternate in the 2008 competition. Besides being recognized as a great songwriter, David's guitar playing continues to be in demand live & in the studio around the Puget Sound.
