ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DOWNLOAD THIS ALBUM FROM ITUNES!!!!

In 2003 we were invited by Zoom Tone Records to come to NYC and record a live album in SACD format (Super Audio Compact Disc), which will play in any CD player. Supposedly if you have a SACD player the quality is all that much better.

The label's idea for the project was to record a "live in the moment" very acoustic record. We enlisted the help of our producers Chris Rosser & Jerry York to join us for these sessions. We all met in Asheville, NC at Chris' studio to rehearse songs and decide which songs we would record. Another idea the label had was to do an out of the box cover song, and thus was born our rendition of "Meet The Flintstones".

During these reheasals we also agreed on the cover art for the album, which is an actual painting done by Chris' brother n law, Allen Bentley, who was kind enough to let us use his art. Allen is an amazing artist in Philadelphia. Check out his work online.

The recording took place in a small church in Scarsdale, NY over two days. The label's idea for the sessions was to use two mics for the recording and that would be it. There would be no editing, no retakes. Just one shot at it!

And that is exactly what the album, Still, is. A very real, in the moment, acoustic album and it's now available for download on itunes and many more online digital retailers. This album is out of print, so the only way to get right now is through digital download

The first thing you notice is the intimacy.

Compared to other records you've heard, other voices you've encountered, this one is stripped bare. No fake reverb, no artificial vibrato. Jen is here. With you. Right now.

Her voice will remind you of Norah Jones or Natalie Merchant or Eva Cassidy. But it won't. Because Jen is an original, someone you've never heard before. Listening to her is an experience.

Then you hear Rob on the guitar. Followed by another guitar... That's Chris. Then a third guitar-Jerry. The music gets more and more complex, but the ideas stay simple. Then the air is shattered by Jen's djembe, the drum making your speakers ache-just a little bit.

Still is anything but. It's passionate and heartfelt and honest and you'll never forget it.

Soothing, Relaxing, Thought Provoking
When I first put the cd in I had to turn the volume up. It felt like I was in the back row at a concert. Then I thought wow this is great, just like at a concert. The st provoking songs are mostly thought provoking and soothing to listen to. If you like acoustic, this is for you.

Incredible
I heard them playing outside of a tavern in St Augustine. Just incredible...
