Album Notes

"So far outside the Nashville zeitgeist (redneck glam, Starbucks Americana and the inevitable backlash from bratty punk popsters), Jennifer Niceley may as well get it over with and move to SoHo, where her sonic gallery -- jazzy gestures, reverb blurs (courtesy of guitarist/producer Joe McMahan) and languid acoustic strokes -- would hang well with bohemians who consider Mazzy Star and the Cowboy Junkies the apotheosis of mood music. On her first and only release, Seven Songs, Niceley lives up to her name, then disowns it entirely. A gothic innocence slurs her temperate, delicately pitched voice, and a cool sexuality tingles between her lines like moonlight through magnolia trees. Her Southern melancholia isn't a put-on; it's a turn-on, if your dream belle is secretive-bordering-on-mystifying, intense-bordering-on-obsessive, literate-bordering-on-worldly. Any singer-songwriter knowing enough to cop a metaphor from Yeats' "Second Coming" or release all the dark sensuality of Jesse Winchester's "Biloxi" isn't easily forgotten."

a love from another world
Foundjennifer listed in music listings in the tennessean and the companion nashville rage so checked her out and boy what a voice. the best way to describe it is the title of this review. it's as if you were floating free in space in her arms with just the stars and moons or planets to guide you on a wonderful voyage across the universe. say wouldn't that be a cool song to hear jeniffer sing? well jennifer my love i am glad to belong to you and that dreamy voice.

Great Sound, Great Stuff!
Wow! Fantastic CD!:) I am a recording engineer as well as an artist, and I was trolling an audio engineering blog about microphones and the person in one thread mentioned that a certain vocal mic was used on your album....well, I clicked on the linked and landed at CD Baby:) What a great sound Jennifer:) The whole band and the arrangements rock- real good stuff.

I wish you all of the best of success:)

God Bless,

Not quite as stunning as Luminous, but impressive nonetheless. I got them at the same time, and played this one first. If I didn't have Luminous, I'd play Seven Songs all the time.

Love Ya Jennifer, Doug
I first met Jennifer at The Torch in Good old Knockssfull in the early 90's. I was amazed the first time that I heard her beautiful voice. I told her that she had a voice similar to Dory Previn, Andre Previn's first wife. I made Jennifer a cassette of I think, KINGS AND IGUANAS by Dory. Jennifer was also amazed to hear the similarities between Dory Previn and herself. The styles are different but the voices are very similar.

I sort of lost contact with Jennifer when she moved to Nashville and about two years ago, I went to see Jennifer play at The Corner Lounge here in Good Old Knocksfull. I didn't dream that she would have remembered me but as soon as I walked in the door, she knew who I was. When she took a break, she came straight to my table and we chatted for a few. I got one of her CDs and it was what I was expecting from her, wonderful. I play it a lot to my friends and everyone seems to enjoy the CD as much as I do. I am especially drawn to the song BILOXI. I am anticipating her next CD.

Jennifer’s voice, as well her songs are deeply personal and intimate. The delivery is cinematic and seems to relate to some intense, universally understood dreamworld. The music and production is somewhat beyond category, but somehow, there are elements of indie-pop, and Americana with a singing style and warmth that harkens back to another time. It’s almost as if you were to combine elements Leonard Cohen, Hope Sandoval and Jo Stafford. This disc packs quite a wollop and makes for an interesting, compelling listen time and time again. A real hidden treasure.


Worth the wait...
Having followed Jennifer's musical career for some time, I can say this CD was definitely worth the wait. Hearing her haunting vocals alongside more textured musical accompaniment was a genuine treat. While I’ve seen the names Gillian Welch, Hope Sandoval, and even Norah Jones written in relation to Jennifer’s sound, I would throw in Patty Griffin, as well, as far as being able to physically move emotion through her voice. Standout tracks include “Biloxi” and “Troubled Sea.” Here’s hoping the next CD is entitled "30 Songs."

So pretty it hurts
Boy, I had the pleasure of seeing Ms.Niceley last Saturday at Fitzgeralds American Music Festival and I've still got the shivers. It was just Jennifer and her producer/guitarist Joe McMahon on stage and it was breathtaking. Wow, what a presence! I can't wait to see her again. Her version of 'Biloxi' gives me goose bumps big time. This CD is unfortunately a bit short but every song is a gem. It took two listenings to sink in but now I can't take it off. I just love her voice, and the production is absolutely perfect. This is a stunning first CD. When's the next one coming out?


A gem of a cd
My favorite local cd of 2004. Jennifer's vocals are reminiscient of Sarah McLachlan or Hope Sandoval in that sultry, ethereal sort of way, while her songwriting and stellar production have just the right amount of twang to please the alt.country crowd. I have a feeling this release will be picked up by an indy label soon and Jennifer will be able to say goodbye to her day job.

Outstanding lyrics and music
I was recently introduced to Jennifer's music on her Seven Songs CD and I think it is just fabulous! Awesome yet soothing lyrics and I so thoroughly enjoyed listening to the CD several times before I turned it off. I am looking very much forward to her next CD.
