ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There's no doubt about it, Jen has been playing music all of her life.

With straightforward lyrics that relate universally and music that flows from one song to the next, despite several different styles exhibited, Jen has the ability to captivate any audience.

The lyrics speak of life, love, and deep relationships that affect all of us.

The music is melodic and heartfelt.

Friends say she's "Ahead of her time" and "Stronger vocally than anyone else I've heard".

With a voice that reaches out and grabs you and a piano style that's simple and melodic, you won't soon forget this performer.

Jen was born and raised in Chicago.

After leaving for Ann Arbor in 1993 to obtain a BA, Jen soon realized that she wanted more than an education: She wanted to perform.

She fronted several bands, singing lead and harmonies, playing piano and guitar.

She entertained people in several different venues around southeastern Michigan for close to five years.

She enjoyed a solo residency at a piano bar where people came to hear incredible music in a comfortable setting every Thursday.

Her quest to share her music has brought her home, to Chicago.

Jen currently plays at least twice a week in the city and is continually booking more solo performances.

Her powerful voice is attracting more and more attention in her hometown than ever before.

Jen also sings a song that's rather challenging and can be quite moving: The National Anthem.

She sings it a cappella and commanded the attention of over forty thousand when she performed for the Detroit Pistons while in Michigan.

Now, she is bringing this stunning performance home as well.

She has performed at Soldier Field and plans to perform for "as many events as they'll let me", she says.

Imparting a strong sense of patriotism and "bringing tears" to the eyes of many sharing the experience, Jen soulfully performs the Anthem to perfection, bringing huge crowds to their feet every time she performs it.

Her style is expansive and universal.

You can't help but love her powerhouse voice and smooth piano.

Jen plays everything from Stevie Nicks and Aretha Franklin to Alanis Morrisette and Fiona Apple, as well as her own original creations.

Don't miss this fresh, new female on the scene!

GREAT first release!
This is a great watermark for Ms. Jen Porter. \"These Are The Days\" has a somber feel to it that soothes you with the ethereal quality of the band and her wonderful harmonies. The rest of the album flows quite nicely. However, the track that REALLY catches me is the last one on the EP, \"Last Night.\" A very stark, passionate and gutsy way for Jen to close her first recording. (I only WISH that she would do this one live someday.)
One thing is for sure, Jen\'s vocals (both recorded and live,) will stop you in your tracks, grab your attention, and demand your respect. Regardless, it is very obvious what her mission statement is: An outspoken woman that WILL be heard through song.

A bold new twist on an already popular sound.
Faces is a great debut for Jen. It exhibits the wide range of her voice and talent as a song writer. From the subtle coolness of "Ray" to the funky groove of "These are the Days", Jen displays an ambition that has only begun to blossom. A little under-produced, but check this one out. I think we can expect great things from her in the future.

JEN PORTER PACKS IT ALL IN
Jen has made a great leap forward into the music industry. Within this powerhouse of music and lyric, Jens takes her listeners on a journey through the fun and quirky to the deep and heartfelt personal self. Jen has made a great contribution to the growing number of female artists that have hit the charts of the once dominted male industry. While it is a "debut CD" (produciton quality) it is WELL WORTH its weight in the music within. As time goes on, Jen Porter will surely give us added additions and a high quality in the albums to come. I definately would recomend everyone to give this one a look see and make it a part of your collection, it will truly add value to ANYONE's personal colection
