No Time for a Bad Day

by The Jellybeans

On the second album from this amazing and inspiring young group, the girls deliver songs for all ages, especially for those a little too old for 'kiddie' songs, but still too young for the themes of today's teen pop.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This second album from The Jellybeans goes far beyond what they did on their debut album, which was an album of children's songs. Recorded this past school year, while they were in the seventh grade, they built on what they did in the sixth grade in terms of songs, vocal style and production. The songs are very cool and very different from what you might expect girls their age to sing. It's rock-n-roll their way. Some songs on here are still for the younger set, but since the girls wanted to sing songs for kids their own ages (13) and up, they get to do just that with the last four songs on the album. The musicianship is first rate with the bass player from the Bruce Springsteen tribute band, The B Street Band, doing all the bass and guitar work as well as percussion.
As pointed out by Andrea Guy of ReviewYou.com, "these girls can really sing" and "the group sounds professional and much older than their years." By singing together since they were in the third grade, the girls have developed the ability to blend their voices into one beautiful sound and can easily handle the intricate melodies and rhythms of the songs on this album. Their first album got them onto Pandora Radio, on TV and in newspapers. They were also the youngest artists ever featured by The Independent Music Awards (IMAs) in an ‘Artist Spotlight.' If you like the 'girl group sound,' you'll enjoy listening to The Jellybeans. Keep an eye on them; and both ears!

Love This Group!
This is a very impressive CD from The Jellybeans. I loved their first one because it was so cute and full of great songs for kids, but this one is amazing. It’s hard to believe these girls were only in the seventh grade when they recorded it. They have beautiful voices and they sound very professional. My kids have the songs in their iPods and the disc is always playing in the car. Their favorite song, ‘It’s Not Easy Doing What I Do,’ makes them laugh because they can relate to having to do the same work around the house. My oldest one’s favorite is ‘We Will Meet Again’ because it’s very ‘High School Musical.’ I like them all, but especially, ‘Say You Like Me.’ That one takes me back to when I was their age; to a time when music had that great rock-n-roll sound. The group is not over produced and their vocals really shine through. This CD is not just for kids; not at all, and The Jellybeans are fantastic.

Jellybeans, you're great!
"With an arrangement that picks you up and carries along for the ride, and a slightly warped sound reminiscent of 1980’s wonders The Buggles, “Say You Like Me” will get your toes tapping" Great Wildy Haskell review for you guys!

"Say You Like Me" YES! I Like this song
Pretty good review from Matthew Forss, check it out: "The chorus contains a few solo parts, but the group singing and instrumentation is the best. The song harkens back to the bubble-gum pop of the 1950s and 60s. However, the music should be in its own genre—‘jellybean pop"

The Jellybeans “No Time For A Bad Day”
The Jellybeans are a unique group of girls that go to Our Lady Of Mercy Academy in New Jersey. Eleven girls make up this band and all of them are in eighth grade! No Time For A Bad Day is their second album. Quite a feat for girls that young.

The seven songs featured on the album are written for The Jellybeans by Anthony Coviello, and they really showcase the band’s talent. With 11 girls, you’d expect to hear something based on a cappella singing, but these girls deliver their own special flavor of pop music.

The music is geared towards tweens but has a different sound from what the Radio Disney crowd is listening to. Many of the songs on No Time For A Bad Day have a 60s girl group vibe—two in particular are “Where Are You Friday?” and “Be On Time.” Like the songs from that era, many of the tracks on No Time For A Bad Day are super-short. But where they are lacking in length, they are heavy on the talent.

When the girls aren’t channeling bands like The Angels, they are singing beautiful harmonies. “One Perfect Moment In Time,” is a beautiful example of voices raised in perfect harmony. It will make everyone who took part in their school’s chorus reminisce. This is how all choruses should sound, but The Jellybeans are more than that.

These girls can really sing and, though some songs are a bit childlike, on No Time For A Bad Day the group sounds professional and much older than their years. That’s what makes their music a great listen for anyone that happens to pick up No Time For A Bad Day.

The songs show how well these girls can handle a variety of styles of music. “We Will Meet Again” is fun pop song that starts slow and builds up to a fun pop rock number. “Say You Like Me,” is pure 60s girl band goodness. It is really hard to toss the music of The Jellybeans into any niche.

What can easily be said about The Jellybeans and their music is that it is fun to listen to. They’ll also leave you with a sense of awe that a bunch of girls in seventh grade (at the time the album was recorded) sounds so fantastic.

No Time For A Bad Day is something special to hear. It also proves that tweens don’t have to sing like Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez to get noticed; the Jellybeans were featured in an Artist Spotlight by the Independent Music Awards, and they deserve those kudos.

It isn’t often that something this fresh and different comes out for this age group of listeners. The fact that this album is such a refreshing listen makes it even better. This set of songs is perfect to sing along to in the car or anywhere—plus, they keep things age-appropriate, another refreshing thing, proving that it is possible to sing songs about love and not get too sexy.

The Jellybeans have created something family-friendly while making music that’s fun. This is definitely a must-listen for the tween crowd, especially if your tween is a fan of Glee.

It is really hard to believe that The Jellybeans are girls on the verge of entering high school. They are definitely some voices that the world should watch and listen for. If they sound this good now, the mind boggles at what they will sound like a few years down the line. However, it’s nice to listen to an album and know that there is still innocence in the music industry—and that is displayed beautifully on No Time For A Bad Day.
