Jenn Grant: Echoes

Jenn Grant
Six Shooter Records [2009]

Fire Drills Review:
Hopefully Canadian Jenn Grant will be a name you hear this year as the singer/songwriters sophomore record Echoes is an excellent 13 tracks of modern burners which embrace Grant's sultry vocals. Grant dabbles in a multitude of styles that range from the jazzy "(I've Got) The Two Of You" to the breezy pop of "Parachutes" and includes her own take on Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" which simply just adds to Grant's uniqueness and appeal. Echoes is an album that is built around Grant's best instrument - her voice - and when it comes down to that she will completely win you over!

Key Track: "Blue Mountains"

Band With Similar Fire: Beth Orton
