ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
bio:
"Listening to jean mann's music feels like being in a really amazing indie film" -Judith Avers

Picking up the guitar only 10 years ago, independent artist Jean Mann has created 3 full-length original albums. Known for her powerfully intimate live performances, Mann's music is enhanced by a harmonic blend of guitar and lush, swelling vocals, wrapping heartfelt, often heart-wrenching lyrics around the listener’s soul. Her newest release, “daisies and fire”, is the most richly textured work to date.
Daisies and Fire was recorded in Seattle studios, Froglips and Spikehaus Sound, and co-produced by Jean Mann and Bill Corral.

Jean Mann on vocals, acoustic and tenor guitars, melodica, harmonica, percussion
Bill Corral on lap steel, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, accordion, melodica, backing vocals (Froglips Studio Engineer)

BIO
Jean Mann was raised in a picture book brick house on Lake Whatcom in Bellingham, Washington, creatively stuffed into a 2+ bedroom house with 6 siblings, many cats, dogs, gerbils and a goat...your basic urban farm. Now based in Seattle in a historic cottage with just one small gray cat, she considers Seattle to be her second hometown and a little too big for this small-town girl.

Before her guitar days began, Jean had taught herself on a funky old $65 purple piano her mom bought for the family on Valentine's day (1976), and when she moved out to pursue life, had to leave the bulky musical beast behind. After picking up the guitar (1996), she began plucking out songs, teaching herself with songbooks ala Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt etc, and wrote her first song. on 9/9/1999, the day her mother passed away. Only then did she truly begin to hear and realize her own voice and a passionate, soulful calling to the world of songwriting.

"I've always been a believer that the heart and soul speak in simple languages, including the languages of music. Jean Mann proves this to be true by the brilliant design of her music." -Michael Allison, The Global Muse

Daisies and Fire
I not only have Jean's CD in my car, but downloaded in my office computer.....when I'm doing "task oriented jobs", her voice takes me away from the 'monotony'....plus I can sing along...Love her style, variety, range, "she speaks my soul"......

Daisies and Fire
I recently heard Jean Mann at an intimate venue in Scottsdale, AZ and was blow away by her amazing voice, lyrics, and arrangements that at times reminded me of Joni Mitchell until I heard a Joni Mitchell song on the radio recently and instantly thought,"Jean is sooo much better"! I bought both of her CD's and play them every morning, and in the car. Her music touches my heart, and uplifts my spirits. I can't wait to hear her again, and hope that next year she will head back to Arizona with a new CD in tow!
