ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jessica Fine is a singer/songwriter from Bloomington, Illinois. After graduating from the University of Miami's School of Music in 2005, she traveled to New York to pursue a music career. Singing since she could talk, she also began playing the piano at the age of eight. She surrounded herself with music and would listen to it all. Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, and Billy Joel were important influences growing up and continue to be along with more recent artists such as The Counting Crows and Fiona Apple.
At Miami she was able to expand her musical talents and hone her songwriting ability. While at Miami she also met her fellow bandmates. Playing together throughout college, they were able to perfect their sound and grow as a band. Jessica's voice has been compared to Sarah Mclachlan, Norah Jones, and Fiona Apple. With a mix of Pop, R & B, and Rock, her real lyrics and unique sound set her apart from other artists.

Love her sound. Was introduced to the artist by a co-worker who knows her work. My only suggestion is keep it coming. Played the CD at a recent party along side India Arie, Joss Stone, Nora Jones and got nothing but compliments.

A real singer
At seven tracks long it's not clear if this should be classified as a long EP or a short album. Either way it is certainly well worth listening to. Jessica has successfully created a gentle pop sound; however it is not the sugar-coated or sickly sweet type of gentleness. She incorporates a little bit of funk, just a hint of rock and some torch-song influences along the way. And at times there is a surprisingly raw edge to her music.

It is perhaps not surprising then that you get a varied set of songs to cast your ears over. The opening track "Running Back To You" is one of the best, and has a distinct soulful sound at its heart. On the other hand the title track "Soul Escape" has a raunchier funky sound to it than the rest helping it to standout - and deservedly so. "This Time" also leans toward the funky soulful side, albeit with a hint of rock. The more sedate "Fav'rite Dream" is underpinned by a deep dense bass, and coupled with the Julie London style vocals, it just seems to melt all over you.

Jessica posses a fine voice which imparts real depth to the songs. The album also benefits from her having avoided ploughing the lone furrow of just one musical style. Always knew that you should sow your seed as widely as possible for the best results!
