ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Genevieve began in music much like other musicians begin - she was passionate about it. As a baby, she would literally wake up singing, and her family would track her down by following her voice. At age six, she taught herself to play the piano, and before reaching her teenage years, she had also mastered the clarinet, recorder and drums. She had an amazing ability to remember music, particularly from films, and would sit at the piano for hours, creating her own soundtracks. Always a gifted writer, it didn't take very long for her to put words to the music and start composing.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Genevieve's family influenced her musical diversity. Growing up listening to everything from AC/DC to Air Supply to The Beastie Boys to Led Zeppelin to Dolly Parton to Whitney Houston, she learned to appreciate music for what it was, not who it was. As a result, she approaches her own songwriting in the same manner, focusing more on the songs as individual stories, each with its own past, present and future. Because of this, it isn't unusual to find a country-tinged folk song next to a sexy New Orleans-jazz-infused romp next to a melodic Disney-esque ballad. On the surface, it seems completely illogical, but when you hear the songs, it makes perfect sense, quite possibly because you can't stop listening to her voice.

Genevieve defies conventional trappings because she loves to experiment. In the same way that Sting and Peter Gabriel bring in world elements and intelligent lyrics, Genevieve is always trying new sounds and ways of stringing words together to create an atmosphere. It's like she writes mini-movies, setting the scene complete with imagery, tone and dialogue.

Not surprisingly, Genevieve the person is just like her music - an old soul in a young body. Her music reflects the intelligence and worldliness of someone well beyond her years. And, like her music, she quietly slips under your skin without your knowledge until you can't get her out of your head.

" This Little Thing Called Life "
Genre: pop
REVIEW by Annette Warner, GoGirls
I was immediately enamored by the beautiful tone of Genevieve’s vocals which were expressed clearly and maintained a delicate and melodically passionate expression throughout the project. This entire CD is a fine example of what happens when music knows its place mixed with some extraordinary pipes. Great music! A wonderful mood was captured in listening. Recommended highly, for anyone that enjoys reflective, classy and timeless music.

REVIEW, J-Sin, Smother Magazine
I’ll tell what can’t ever be called a “little thing”—Genevieve’s voice. Her voice is the cornerstone from which she builds off tremendous songwriting. The sound is a bit of contemporary pop mixed in with roots folk and piano ballads. Most singer/songwriters wish they had half this much talent. If she’s not signed to a major label deal with this demo, then I give up on the mainstream industry.


REVIEW by Amy Lotsberg, Producer of Collected Sounds
It seems I've gotten a lot of CDs lately that are AAA and like I said in a previous review, because the market for this style is so saturated, you have to have something to offer that makes you different from the rest. I think Genevieve has this. Though I can't really put my finger on what exactly "it" is. But she does not sound like anyone else that I can think of. The style is similar to other artists, but her voice is pretty unique...and pretty, well, pretty.

"Lead me Home" is quite catchy and has a tiny touch of a Celtic feel in the chorus which is appealing to me. Very lovely. "My Albatross" showcases of the strength in her vocals. On "So Good For Me" Genevieve really lets her hair down and shows her sexy sultry side.

If you like music that focuses on the singer and lyrics check this out.

Dawn Newton

super strong vocals soulful heartfelt lyrics
Move Along starts out as a haunting tale about a relationship with an overly dominate manipulative man. Yet situation realization comes to fruition and she makes it out. DEEP.........

Don't Let It Go is about becoming comfortable with who you are!! Sweet, yet upbeat. You can't help but sway to the music or rock to the beat.
Great music to escape with on an overly hectic day!!

Matt Russell

powerful music, voice & lyrics
Did not know what to expect when I picked up the album. Cover reminded me of vintage Alanis Morisette but the music is completely different. She may be a singer-songwriter in the sense that she certainly can sing, and also writes all of her own material, but her voice certainly outshines most in the singer-songwriter category. Music is not overweighted with too many elements - it is clean and allows the lyrics to be showcased. One song that really stood out for me was "My Albatross", which made the hair on my neck stand up with its haunting arrangement (listen for the bell ringing in the background). "Don't Let It Go", "Baby, You Can Cry" and "I Left the Light On" are very strong in the singalong category. Overall, the music is strong, the lyrics are compelling, and the voice is terrific. I would highly recommend the album.
