This record is two years in the making, with strong song writing and world class vocals and featuring some of the best musicians in the industry [Zev Katz (Judy Collins,Steely Dan), Marc Shulman (Suzanne Vega), Everett Bradley (star of Broadway''s "Swing," Billy Joel), Shawn Pelton (SNL Band, Jon Bon Jovi)].
Jeannie writes contemporary folk/pop songs with a bluesy/R&B vocal style that is at times powerful and soulful, reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt or Laura Nero, and at other times lyrical and beautiful with influences from Joni Mitchell, Shawn Colvin and Billie Holiday.
It is state-of-the-art and digitally recorded and mastered.
Jeannie has been getting a LOT of press including feature articles in The Boston Globe and other papers in Massachusetts where she lives.
She is also gaining local airplay. Performing to standing ovations, Jeannie has been called "the next musical megastar" (Middleboro Gazette), "magnetic and powerful" (Songwriter''s Hall of Fame), and "Few vocalists create images and stir emotions merely with the sound of their voice. All the great ones do, and Jeannie does, too." (Downtown Magazine) Her singing landed her a prestigious position as a professor of voice at Boston''s world-renown Berklee College of Music.
Favorite songs with fans are the beautiful track #3, "I Can Talk To You;" track #8 "I''m On Hold," a funny look at being a mom; and the powerful opening track, "Gonna Be Fine Fine." Although this is not a kids album, many families say their children refuse to take the cd out of the player! This is a very special CD not to be missed.
