About

“The singing of Jennifer Milligan is excellent and her lyrics are engaging” Soul Bag Magazine 2018

Westerville, Ohio native, Lil’ Red, with bite, humor and a contagious smile writes, sings, scratches and shakes with all that makes her soul burn. Since 2010, she’s been writing and touring internationally with her husband award winning French blues guitarist Pascal Fouquet. They're warm and inviting and their music is inspired and innovative, blues with a spirit full of hope and joy may inspire you to get up and boogie! In 2017, Chicago Blues Hall of fame inductee Dave Specter produced their album Soul Burnin' and in 2018, he joined them at the prestigious BayCar Blues Festival. You can see her shuffling and groovin’ several times a year at Buddy Guy’s Legends. 

Lil' Red Records ...

This is the first official "auto-production" release by Lil' Red Records! We met Chicago guitar legend and producer, Dave Specter, at his club Space. After listening to our live CD he expressed his interest in coming on as the producer and featured guitarist. Lil' Red & The Rooster's Soul Burnin' is composed of 12 original songs with two instrumentals recorded, mixed and mastered by Grammy winner Blaise Barton at JoyRide Studio in Chicago. A true American/French collaboration Jennifer “Lil’ Red" Milligan & Pascal “Rooster” Fouquet are joined by the dynamite French rhythm section Abdell B. Bop on upright bass and Denis Agenet on drums.  American award winning boogie & blues pianist Ricky Nye added keys and Shaun Booker, Jeff Morrow and Caroline Rau on vocals also joined the mix. Touching and refreshing with bite and humor, their original songs come from their love for those old jazzy blues and post-war rhythm & blues. “It’s a cry for love!” says Lil’ Red “The current climate of political turmoil, violence, racism and bigotry makes my soul burn. May the Blues heal and bring us together through the awareness of beauty in difference.”
