ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jill Stevenson (now in New York City) has a 5 song
EP that is simply stunning.

The Denver native came to the East coast a few years ago, lived in New York
City, then spent some time here in the mountains, and just recently moved to
back to Brooklyn.

Though she has several previous releases, this offering is a band effort,
and there is a oneness that comes with familiarity here that's quite
palpable. Longtime Stevenson co-hort Mike Visceglia (bass) Daniel A. Weiss
(keys) Doug Yowell (drums) and Billy Masters (guitar) make up the impressive
combo.

The melodic, multi-layered yet assessable and radio ready first track
"Dreamer" uses almost all of Stevenson attributes; her exquisite songwriting
of depth and latitude, her soaring, passionate pipes, and her passionate
power and conviction.

The vocal performance in the sultry, sensual "Sugar Sweet" is simply
stunning, but the most jaw-dropping track has to be the heartbreaking, raw
open wound of "Ain't Enough," where she explains "my love just ain't enough/
if you don¹t want it." The inherent sense of drama and mystery of the music
juxtaposes the stark reality of the lyric, anyone who has had a bad break-up
or has been betrayed (and that's most of us) will be profoundly moved, and
if this doesn't bring you near tears, you're just not alive.

Stevenson sings each song like her life depended on it.

And it does.

Hands down simply one of the best CDs of the year, Stevenson will be widely
known, loved and respected in no time.

Produced by Peter Denenberg and The Jill Stevenson Band at Acme Studios in Mamaronck, NY.
Mixed and mastered by Peter Denenberg.
Executive Producer Christopher J. O'Connell
