Most importantly, she is a member of band called Royal Trux, which appears to be the pinnacle of her life. It started in 1988, when she and her then-boyfriend Neil Hagerty decided to join forces and create the band. Since then, the whole idea of her creative career was centered around not giving a damn. After having quit the band in 2001, Jennifer went on to pursue a career in every sphere possible from creating artwork to making videos and shooting films. However, now has come the time for Royal Trux to come back again. After finally bearing the hatchet, they are going to release a brand new live album in the nearest future. By the way, guess who is responsible for the album’s artwork?

Through time, she and Neil Hagerty went through a lot of struggles, including personal ones. Before forming their own band, they played with Pussy Galore and already there, they started to learn something about the constraints of this career ladder. The tension between two creative minds might shake roofs. Nevertheless, their experience in always hanging out, touring and making music together created unbreakable bonds between them two. Therefore, it allowed them to stay as close as ever now, when they are in the midst of the Royal Trux reunion. Obviously, going from the bottom to the top with someone by your side teaches you something important about relationships. With that experience behind them, Royal Trux are back again.

According to Herrema, she doesn’t perceive herself as a musician. She is an artist, and that implies a lot of different things. Nevertheless, regardless of all the ventures she participated in, she still keeps the same old approach to things.
