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.
