About This Event
After parting ways with her label in 2008, King continues her work independently. Her follow-up EP “Seven” was recorded in her home and released in July, 2011. In October she accepted an invitation from Maroon 5 to be the opening act on their European/Scandinavian tour in late 2011.
King’s carefully crafted compositions are the perfect vehicle for her polished, lush vocals that harbor both an innocence and honesty. A gentle mix of soul, folk and rock influences, King’s music emotes the kind of straight to the point storytelling that’s reminiscent of singer/songwriters of the 1970?s.
Early Bird, then, is the perfect proclamation of this young chanteuse’s entrance into the hearts and headphones of listeners the world ‘round. Bell tackles loves songs like “Follow the White Rabbit” with reckless abandon, pens laments with the best of them with songs like “Shotgun City”, and carries deft lyricism with a gracious, breathy lilt. Free to hear at bandcamp.jennahbell.com, and yours to keep for the low donation of $5, Early Bird is a scrumptious 5-track introduction to an artist that will keep you captivated for years to come.
