Jenny Gill will release her debut EP, “The House Sessions”, February 17.
The opportunity to review the upcoming EP by Jenny Gill was given to yours truly. But, why does the name sound familiar? A little research tells me she has famous parents. This is her review and not a history lesson in country and Christian music. Into the secret vault of new music I go to give “The House Sessions” a solid listen.
The first track, “Lonely Lost Me” is a cool little song that establishes Jenny’s dynamic vocal ability, strong and subtle at the same time. The record moves into the heart-felt song, “Look Where Loving You has Landed Me” that made me warm and fuzzy. The most country song on this record comes from the third track, “Whiskey Words.” The song highlights her country vocal roots. They are sweet, solid and have some great moves into her falsetto voice. Probably one of my favorites from this record. “Lean on Love” is set at the number four track and this song is a bit more up tempo with some great backing harmonized vocals. My next journey was to track five, “Your Shadow.” This is her breakout song telling the world that she is her own person and artist and not just the daughter of famous parents. The record wraps up with a cover of The Boxtops song “The Letter.” I have said this a number of times, I get a little sketchy when some of the greats are covered. Not this version, she put her style to this song and made it soulful and fun.
Jenny Gill‘s “The House Sessions” has made into The Pit office rotation and will probably sit there for some time. I give it a solid 9/10, and will tell friends to give this a listen as well. Enjoy it!!
