Album Notes
The winner of Billboard Magazine's 2003/04 World Song Contest for #1 Pop Song, Jennie DeVoe has proven herself a force to be reckoned with. An authentic and unique songwriter with a quirky wit, lyrics for the intelligent listener and sung with her soulful, honey-gravel voice - Jennie DeVoe understands how to captivate a listener with a voice that's identifiably her own.

Her brand new cd Fireworks and Karate Supplies was produced by John Parish in Bath, England with additional tracks by Paul Mahern. (Parish best known for producing Tracy Chapman, The Eels and PJ Harvey; Mahern for Over the Rhine and John Mellencamp). A lover of a well-crafted and passionate song Jennie has set her standards high by carving out her own style, specifically a "hippie-soul-gospel- bluesy-folk-rock type thing" in DeVoe's words. Previously on her own, DeVoe released two studio cds - with sales exceeding 30,000 from the stage - and one live album that have won awards and appeared on major television shows such as Joan of Arcadia, Dawson's Creek, Time of Your Life. The new cd has already been getting radio adds on WTTS, Indianapolis, WTPI, Indianapolis and WOKI, Knoxville, TN - along with a page of college radio from past radio play.

Jennie's music attracts fans of all ages,18 to 60, and from all walks of life. The vibe she exudes during her shows is clear evidence of her connection with live audiences and the true passion she has for what she does. She draws you into her endearingly human world, puts a spell on you with her presence, her voice and her unusual twist on lyrics and phrasing, and she tells you stories that let you know she's been where you've been. Press calls Jennie "a petite blonde with unruly hair and a voice seven times her size" and that she "radiates the vibe of a 21st century flower child" and lastly, that "Jennie DeVoe has always sounded a bit like Janis Joplin but now she's inhabiting some of the psychedelic icon's dangerous space. Consider all of DeVoe's dues paid with 'Fireworks & Karate Supplies" - an important and irresistible leap forward."

Captivating voice....amazing style. this one's a keeper!
This CD is one of DeVoe's Best---with the moving songs like "Here on Earth", "Andy", and "Big Amen" Ms. DeVoe shows that her punky gravelly side can soften into a mature 'cornacopia' of melodic heaven. "My Sister the Hippie" shows off the 'spontaneous' side of her..."She ain't obligated to no one, that's a fact.....says his love used to taste like a piece of cake, now it just makes a sound that a wrecking ball makes", though short and sweet, delivers the goods, and tells a story that you will be repeating all the way home from one of her shows. This CD (one of four) is a keeper....get it now!!

DeVoe is one of the best from this decade!
There are songs on this cd that move me and a couple that I don't connect with. But it doesn't seem to matter because Jennie is one of those artists that shines through no matter what. I don't know why she has chosen not to go "big" but I am glad that I came across her stuff when I did. I anticipate each cd as it comes and I am always blown away by the depth to her voice and lyrics - a priceless talent that just keeps giving it back. Thanks Jennie!

Now a fan, shopping online at cdbaby

I got chills hearing the voice, she is incredible, lyrics r awesome!
please, why aren't female pop singers able to sing like this girl? Someone tell me. I was shopping for cool new stuff like Ani DiFranco or Leela James and found Jennie DeVoe. Thank you CDbaby, but honestly how can you help promote her more so everyone drops in and hears her Fireworks record! She rocks, I got chills! LA, Calif
