With the release her second EP, Jessica Fine shows that Pop/Rock can be what it should be: great music played by great musicians.
“I Walk These Streets Again” is defined by infectious melodies and stunning vocals, perfectly supported by organic, yet refreshingly original arrangements.
Jessica’s band is comprised of the exceptionally talented friends she’s known and played music with for years and you can hear their chemistry in the recordings. Maintaining a consistent personality and sound that makes Jessica’s music identifiable, the band effortlessly plays and exposes wide stylistic influences ranging from R&B (“I Walk These Streets Again”), to pop (“This Love”), to edgier rock (“Alone”).
The lyrics are honest, at times playful and at times heart-wrenching, so it is not surprising that they are mostly inspired by personal experiences and the stories of those close to Jessica. It’s music you believe, are effected by, find yourself singing constantly, and that you’ll want to listen to over and over.
“I Walk These Streets Again” is pop at it’s best….it’s good music at best.”
“Jessica [successfully creates] 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…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”
