Less Than Perfect For This World

by jen bye

Eclectic alt pop/rock laced with stick-in-your-head melodies, boldly honest lyrics, & fearless conviction. An introspective collection of songs that have age, wisdom, a little damage, & an incisive edge that doesn't sacrifice hope for cynicism.

Album Notes
"A truly incredible talented writer, singer and artist, is the best way to describe Jen Bye....“Less Than Perfect For This World” is a refreshing breath of artistic passion. Listening to the tracks on the CD is a journey that might show you something about yourself." ~Gael Digital Media

"Uber Alles California! Jen Bye is a godsend with the voice of an impish cherub with a tiny chip on her shoulder. Delivering her conflicting tales of loathing and loving, her trial and triumph enduring soul is exposed with a syrupy’s practically impossible to find anything disappointing amidst her music. Bravo JB!" ~Ant Standring,

“We hear thousands of songs and CDs and it's rare to come across as compelling an album that demands as much time to listen. This is a complete work - with a satisfying and substantial window into Bye's artistry and attitudes. The self-incrimination, surviving self-esteem, & genuine appreciation of life that is woven through all the lyrical lines & music are an artistic time capsule & one that should be opened again & again."

"What makes Bye’s new record powerful are the places she takes the listener; places of different vantage points from which and within the audience can feel the songs.”
~Greg Debonne,

“...there's no reason for the industry not to take note of an engaging, at times fiery, act like this one.”
~Albert Vega, Music Connection Magazine

“Lollipops & candy canes
Old rusty bicycle chains
Spinning round that wheel
Of air, rubber and steel
Bubbles floating everywhere
Lathered up in smoggy air
Distort the mirror’s view
Striving to cut through

This gift I give to You.”


In August 2007, jen produced a well-crafted, eclectic alternative pop/rock CD with bad sister music’s release of “Less Than Perfect For This World”.

This album is laced with interesting stick-in-your-head melodies, boldly candid lyrics and fearless conviction. This introspective collection of songs has age, wisdom, a little damage, and an incisive edge that doesn't sacrifice hope for cynicism.

jen’s talents shine through in her lyrical honesty and eclectic songwriting, covering a wide spectrum of emotions that go beyond simple angst. When presented by her stirring voice, they are made all the more evocative. Combining her extensive musical prowess with a sensual yet ballsy stage presence, jen’s live shows are arresting and unforgettable.

This cd rocks - LOVE listening to this!
Modern and smart - great to listen to - honestly can't get enough of it... bet I'll be hearing some of these songs on the radio any day now.

Rin Lennon

Brilliant lyrically sound creative tracks to add to your timeless collection
I believe this is Jens best record yet. Amazing hooks, sultry vocals, and Jen herself as a musician in her works to get across the emotional feel of this project made with love and honey.
