Album Notes
"JR is like Kate Bush having had a head-on collision with Jeff Buckley. Her haunting vocals and innocent piano playing style will leave you feeling mesmerized"

JR is originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, but moved down to London a few years ago. A self-taught musician, brought up listening to her Dads extensive Motown and Beatles collection. Her taste then evolved into the likes of Kate Bush, Jeff Buckley, John Lennon and The Blue Nile.

"My music tastes influence my own writing a lot and are wide and varied but I remember the first time I heard Kate Bush singing 'This Womans Work' I was left feeling breathless and with an uncontrollable need to write a song like that. It's the possibility that you might affect someone so deeply that inspires me to write music"

Even though JR's first band received much critical acclaim from playing the clubs of Edinburgh, she decided in one night to back her bags and head for the allure of London "Literally 24 hours later I was heading south with all my belongings in the back of a hired transit van"

After arriving in London, JR continued to gain more experience in the session world and on the live circuit, giving her the tools she needed to record her first album. JR's debut has contributions from some of the UKs finest musicians, producer/engineers who have chalked up time with the likes of Madonna, Van Morrison, Sheryl Crow, REM, Brian Eno, David Gray, Paul Weller, The Black Crowes and Nelly Furtado. And with no financial help or input from the music industry establishment, JR has independantly created a unique and timeless album.

JR has already performed these tunes in the UK and parts of America with much success and now with a finished debut CD, looks forward to coming back to tour The States in early 2007.

Lauri Spragins

Beautiful, powerful, emotional - BRILLIANT
I was tempted to rate this cd with 4 stars to encourage JR to continue her fantastic work, but that wouldn't be fair to the cd or you reading this. Life Tastes Sweeter deserves 5 stars, possibly more. I once asked JR if she ever sang opera - what a silly question that turned out to be! Why in the world would JR want to perform music written and produced by anyone other than herself?? This cd is brilliantly mastered to highlight her rich vocals and song writing talent. Kudos to JR for creating a masterpiece debut album.
