FIRED! Reviewer: J-Sin ...review on web
Jenn Lindsay has her finger right on the pulse of the whole wide world of working people everywhere. Sure we care about terrorism and whether or not the dude sneezing next to us is going to give us SARS but what we really fear is losing our job or being stuck in a job that we hate because there`s no other ones out there. So Jenn Lindsay presents us with her album focused on that very flammable topic that we all find ourselves obsessing with. Playing incendiary yet muted folk and as she says it is indeed for the jobless, the brave, and the indignant. Real damn good too. “Not a Good Fit” is the music equivalent of middle America and poor America shaking their collective fists at the CEOs who say their companies are losing money and need to send jobs to Mexico yet these same companies pay millions in bonuses and compensation to keep those weasels. And in a town like New York City she must identify with millions! She`s got my attention and she`ll get yours as well. Just listen, you`ll love it.
THE LAST NEW YORK HORN Reviewer: J-Sin ...review on web
Matching the subtle intensity of her “Fired!” album would be a daunting task for your average singer/songwriter but Jenn casts all doubt aside with her album opener “White Room” not to be confused with the Cream song mind you. Her knack for writing about the things that your average Joe cares about is special and gifted. Sure her music is anti-folk but its pro-everything that anyone looks for in music. Nifty lyrics sung in a melodic and almost haunting voice that carries above the laid back journey of this sultry soft folk rock. “Jill+Jill” tells the tale of a self-realizing lesbian and all the confusion that arises from the so-called alternative lifestyle (how can someone question your sexual preference when its been around since the dawn of woman and man?). It’s these kind of tales that she weaves in her songs that will have you clamoring for more. This is a very special singer/songwriter.-J-Sin
