Oh Don't She Said

by Jennifer Matthews

Oh Don’t, She Said ~ by Jennifer Matthews Jennifer wrote this song after her friend and notable poet, Doug Holder, showed her his poem: “Oh don’t, she said, it’s cold.” After reading it, Jennifer felt inspired and heard a song in it. She had to change some of the words to make it work lyrically with the music, but she made sure to stay close to the original poem as much as possible. Jennifer played all the instruments on it and engineered it. It was mixed by Phil Greene at Normandy Sound, who worked with the likes of Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen and many, many other noted artists. Doug wrote it after a conversation he had with his mother while riding on a train to New York City. It is dedicated to her, Rita Holder.

A compelling collaboration of music and poetry
“Oh Don’t She Said” is a soulful contemporary song, showcasing the collaboration between singer/performer Jennifer Matthews and the poet Doug Holder. The music of song and the music of poetry are wonderfully blended here. In listening one hears the poignancy, longing and complicated emotions expressed in a rich texture of sounds and Matthews’ sympathetic interpretation of the poem. It sounds like they have been producing together for years rather than their first collaboration. Download and enjoy.

Oh Don't, She Said: Jennifer Matthews Makes My Poem Take Flight
