ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Soulful Warrior is the second full length release from Colorado singer-songwriter Jennifer Friedman. This album highlights Jennifer’s outstanding vocal work and passionate, socially conscious songwriting. Cary Morin lends his extraordinary talents on guitar and brings well conceived arrangements to this release.

Jennifer has delighted audiences with her singing nearly her whole life. She was influenced early by the rich singing and theater traditions in the areas near Chicago. As a teenager, she performed in front of thousands singing the American & Canadian National Anthems for the Peoria Chiefs baseball team and Peoria Rivermen hockey team. She starred in stage productions with many noteworthy artists including Andrew Driscoll who went on to play the leading role in the Broadway production of Miss Saigon.

Now living in Colorado, Jennifer stands out as the up & coming acoustic musician of the Rocky Mountain Front Range. A combination of outstanding vocal work, reflective lyrics, and beautiful melodies highlighted by intricate guitar playing, have earned Jen a place on the must hear lists of folk fans and socially conscious people alike. Jennifer released her debut album, “You are Creation” in October 2005 and she received an Honorable Mention award in the 2006 Peacedriven Songwriting Contest for her songs “No more parades,” “Words,” and “Choices.” Selections from her album are being played on the Colorado Wave and Inland Folk, both syndicated radio programs aired throughout the Mountain West. Jennifer has studied songwriting and performance technique with important artists Holly Near, Peter Mayer, Vance Gilbert, and Dr. Isaye Barnwell of Sweet Honey in the Rock fame. Jennifer released her second album “Soulful Warrior” in June 2008 at a time when the American public is craving change and thoughtful songwriting is making a comeback. The album was produced by Cary Morin of The Atoll and recorded at GP Productions in Longmont, Colorado. Jennifer can be heard singing back-up on award winning Minnesota folk artist, Lisa Kane’s, fourth album “Armstrong Avenue” and on Colorado rock band, Wasabi’s album “The Border.”

Jennifer has performed at coffeehouses, clubs, and festivals up and down the Colorado Front Range for many years, moving audiences with her beautifully clear, melodic voice and passionate performance. In 2007, she added 3 national tours to her credit and extended her experience to include the role of workshop leader and travelling lay minister at churches and festivals around the country. It is not uncommon to find audience members struck silent in a room filled with Jennifer’s voice or moved to tears during a show. Jennifer enjoys this connection with her audience and is known for her unguarded sincerity. When not on the road, Jen is Music Director for the Unity Center of Longmont, a board member and musician for Dances of Universal Peace and host of a popular Songwriters in the Round series. She supports many progressive organizations with her music by hosting and playing benefits for groups including the Colorado State Feminist Alliance, Rocky Mountain Sustainable Living Association, and Rocky Mountain Peace & Justice Center.

Jennifer's sweet litling vocals and harmonies drew me in and kept me listening..
Perhaps it was the mellow summery feeling and bayou cruisin' rhythm of this really cool tune that first caught my ear, or maybe it was the simple engaging instrumental intro that told me I was really going to like Prayin' - no pun intended. Then again, it might have been Jennifer's sweet lilting vocals and harmonies that drew me in and kept me listening to all the lyrical and melodious nuances that flow like a crystal clear virgin stream cascading down a mountainside from beginning to end of this excellent song. I had listened to it several times before I realized I was enjoying the music and Jennifer's great guitar work so much so that I had not been paying attention to the lyrics and the story. The time that Jennifer spent studying songwriting techniques with those accomplished national pop and folk artists has paid off handsomely and shines brilliantly here in these lyrics, clearly demonstrating what a truly gifted songwriter she is. The production and mixing here is so very well done too, creating that perfect balance between vocals and instruments and giving each the space they need to rise to their best and maximum potential ... nothing is lost and everything is gained ... a win-win producer/artist dream for sure. Great vocals, great lyrics, great music, great production, great song ... that pretty well sums up my feeling about Prayin'. I'm honored to have you on my station.” -Legendary Music Internet Radio Station
