EP review: JESSICA LYNN – Reimagined

JESSICA LYNN - Reimagined

www.jessicalynnmusic.org/music [Release date 17.09.21]

This new four song EP from Jessica Lynn is influenced by her weekly livestreams during the pandemic. “Since the pandemic started,” Jessica reflects, “I have been performing piano livestreams every week, where my fans have challenged me to try all different types of music and songs, as well as to approach and rework many of my own songs in totally new ways.”

The first single ‘Not Your Woman’, is a vocal tour de force from Jessica. Backed only by her piano playing, she really does pour her heart and soul into this performance. As Jessica herself said “I referred back to that livestream video actually while recording the track to capture my emotion and excitement of the moment and I am so proud of how it came out and also so grateful for this time I have been able to spend at home to be creative and explore opportunities like this. I have never released anything before where I was the only instrumentalist on the track.”

‘Run To’ is a ballad in its original form, although it takes on a more poignant air when performed with just the piano. ‘Pretty’ is another chance for Jessica to highlight the emotive side of her singing, with ‘Now Or Never’ completing the four song EP.

An artist like Jessica Lynn thrives in the live environment, so credit to her and other artists, who adapted the performance of their music to the pandemic limiting live music. Her ever growing army of fans will love this EP, plus it should open her music up to a wider, non-country audience. A country pop artist on the up and up. ****
