Jenny Burton, born November 18 1957 in New York, is a female R&B singer who had several hits on the dance chart. She was lead singer of the dance music band C-Bank's 1983 Top 5 Hot Dance Music/Club Play single "One More Shot", notable for producer John Robie's use of a "non-linear" approach to its production. "One More Shot" is considered to be among the canonical works of "Freestyle". Freestyle is a style of urban dance records known for mixing, among other things, latin influences and hip-hop styled beats.

Also in 1983 Jenny Burton went solo, releasing the album “In Black and White” produced by John Robie. This album featured the top 20 single "Remember What You Like" and the club favorites “Players” and "Rock Steady" on Atlantic Records. She had her biggest success in 1984 with the release of her second self-titled lp, featuring the #1 club hit and #19 r&b single "Bad Habits".

In the 1990's, having regrouped as an inspirational artist, Ms. Burton had a very successful run at the famed NY venue Don't Tell Mama with her band and group The Jenny Burton Experience. She is married to noted Broadway songwriter Peter Link.
