Award-winning singer-songwriter Jennifer Daniels returns with her highly anticipated third release, Summer Filled Sky. Summer Filled Sky has already sparked the interest of several major and indie labels, and promises to delight and inspire an even wider audience than her sophomore album Dive & Fly.
Dive & Fly thrust Daniels onto the national scene when it was named one of the Top 12 Independent Releases in 2002 by Performing Songwriter and added to the playlists of nearly 200 radio stations across the country. FM Odyssey not only awarded Dive & Fly the Album of the Year, but the nationally syndicated radio show also chose Jennifer as the Best New Female Artist at their Alternative to the Grammy's music awards ceremony that same year.
While touring regularly her powerful voice, angelic melodies and spirited performances have won over the hearts of audiences and critics across the country. "It is a rare gift that someone can express such depth and power in lyrics, and it is even more rare that the lyrical gift is accompanied by such an amazing musical talent," wrote Geneses Publishing. PasteMusic.com describes Daniels' musical style as "a sound that wanders from alt-country to haunting folk rock, delivering her poetry with an urgency to match its message."
Summer Filled Sky was mixed and mastered by legendary engineer and producer Rodney Mills who has earned 37 gold and platinum albums for mixing, mastering, and producing artists including Sheryl Crow, Pearl Jam, Gregg Allman, and REM. Mr. Mills successfully captured just the right vibe for Daniels' distinct style and inspiring lyrics, and set her most impressive instrument -her voice- perfectly in the tracks.
"The songs on Summer Filled Sky were put together as a collection because of the way they tap into that thing that stirs inside us when winter finally gives way," explains Daniels.
From joyful pop rock anthems like Day to Live and Welcome to Your Life to the melancholy beauty of ballads like Tattoo and Spiderman, Summer Filled Sky leaves no emotion untapped and no feeling unstirred.
