Album Name: My Turn
Artist: Jennifer Yax
Year/Label: 2003 / North Star Music
Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
She has a pretty stunning voice. So clear, so full. That’s what you’ll probably notice first. Then you’ll realize that she writes a really nice pop song. Full of melody and emotion. Guitar is the primary instrument here (other than the voice of course).
The songs are primarily love songs. What’s interesting is that some are songs about being happy in love. “Tispy” is a very sweet song about being intoxicated by love.
That’s not to say she can’t write a “eff you song”. “Whatever” is a good example of this.
This is a good solid folk-pop recording with great vocals.
Interesting tidbit: This CD was co-mixed by another artist featured on Collected Sounds, Courtney C. Patty who also sings some back up on the CD.
