Just received word that she’ll be releas­ing her album enti­tled, “Pen­nies in a Jar”, this upcom­ing Tues­day, July 12, 2011.

Nikki Jean would travel cross-country, work­ing on songs with col­lab­o­ra­tors who would top any list of the great­est song­writ­ers of all time. The plan was inspired, but also wild and improb­a­ble. Who could imag­ine that a new artist, still in her early 20s, could reach out to a wish list of Hall of Fame song­writ­ers, and that so many would say yes?

What emerged is a com­pact musi­cal his­tory: the girl group sound, Motown, Clas­sic Pop, Philly Soul, a place where Coun­try lit­er­ally meets Hip-Hop. Linked by Nikki Jean’s warmth and her infec­tious joy. The chal­lenge was to take these diverse influ­ences, this geo­graph­i­cal and musi­cal range, and make it flow. ‘PENNIES IN A JAR’ accom­plishes this beautifully.
