JENNIFER MATTHEWS –
The Sunroom Sessions
(Thundamoon Records) Sept.2006
Record review by TC Krentz
Coming off the European leg of the tour of her last
successful release “The Wheel” and fresh of the road from
Alaska, Jennifer Matthews has temporarily sent the rock band on vacation,
has done some reflecting, and has rebirthed some of her hits as well
as created some new gems for her latest CD Jennifer Matthews 'The Sunroom
Jennifer takes to the studio with only a guitar &
microphone to put together a quintessential set of songs which reveals
that her beauty of talent truly runs deep. The girl-with-a-guitar era
is just about over, but I am happy to report this CD isn’t a display
of this tiring genre. Instead the listener is treated to a side of Jennifer
at her most intimate & attractively simplistic. Beautifully haunting
tracks like Floating and Trees in December are accompanied by the hip
& catchy Lemon Peels & Tangerines making for a well-formed collection
of Jennifer Matthews, possibly her very best.
