Susan Lennox

Thought provoking lyrics that head straight for the heart.
Essential Elements delivers with haunting melodies and lyrics that head straight for the heart. The People's Time tells it like it is . Its Never Too Late makes me want to jump up and dance. A fun range of arrangements with solid rhythms , this CD is a keeper, a worthy successor to Hall of Memories.


yes you can have a second as wonderful as the first
so i loved hall of memories so much i was hesitant to have jenica rayne pale in any worries..this one has very different energy but equally magically great

It just keeps getting better
I Wish - inspires me to happiness and my most joyful intentions each time I play it. Walking Back in Time always makes me sad, The People's Time makes me ready to rise up and change the world. This music touches the heart and soul of the listener. Jenica interacts with the listener. The music cant' be heard without a personal response.

Beth Kahlen

Nice melodies, great lyrics...the whole package
When you hear Jenica's songs you know she is doing what every writing teacher tells you to do; she's writing what she knows.
Thoughtful, heartfelt and grounded, Jenica's CD is a pleasure to listen to and an inspiration to other writers like myself.

Dave Reid

Excellent Essential Elements
Essential Elements hightlight Jenica's versatiliy with a combination of her trademark ballads and rocking tunes and humor. Blue Skies Dreaming and The Poet and the Dancer are destined to be classics. The lyrics again are inspirational and Jenica's voice is perfect for conveying her musical message.


Eclectic Energy
wow, this CD is in my cd player on constant rotation with a few other favorites. Great songs with a universal message. Love. Blue Skies Dreaming is among my favorites on this CD, but then there's The People's Time and I think the world needs to hear that one...


Just when you think it can't get any better, Jenica Rayne comes out with a CD that is a journey from beginning to end; From the tracks that touch your soul to your funny bone, right through to the dance floor. Jenica's evocative lyrics and vocals move you from introspection to laughter to the dreaminess of the final track. This CD is wonderfully produced with solid musicianship from beginning to end.


Jenica's Essential Elements
"I love the whole package - the sound production is stellar, all the instruments and nuances of your voice are just spectacular, and the songwriting is really cool...

It's really neat to hear the stylistic contrasts throughout the record as well, such as the gospel-like subtleties of "I Wish," to the bluegrassy feel behind "Get Rollin'"...

Congratulations on having come so far musically ~

...thank-you again for your wonderful contributions to the musical world/society... A lot of good music blended with positive, affirming messages... Well done Jenica!!!!!! You are such a star!!!!! And still wonderfully down-to-Earth!!! ☺"
