Product Notes

JENNA & HER COOL FRIENDS Jenna Jefferson has come into her own, being touted as one of the best singer/songwriters to spring out of the South in decades. When coupling herself to some of Knoxville, Tennessee's prestige musicians and old friends, the collaboration led to an album that swerved from traditional blues and became a body of work that was undeniably infused with the edge of southern rock, gritty soul of Detroit, foot-stomping of the Delta and spiritual vibe of the Deep South. Guitar legend, " Detroit Dave" Meer and co-writer of "My Baby Left Me", 'Woogie Boogie Blues' and "Just When I Needed You Most", has been playing since he was six years old and inspired by Peter Green and Eric Clapton. His roots driven guitar work provides both the edge and tenderness of this retrospective album. Michael "Crawdaddy" Crawley, another Detroit native, has been described as John Popper ( Blues Traveler), Sonny Terry and Little Walter, all perfectly conjoined to a harmonica style that rocketed him to being dubbed the " Tropical Rock Artist of the Year", 2013. His sound is haunting and almost impossible to follow note for note simply due to his impeccable skills and taste. "Street Walkin' Love" was penned and composed by 'Crawdaddy'. Self-taught at the age of three, bassist, Glyn Loyd found his roots in gospel music, performing with renown artists such as Walter Hawkins, The Winans, Fred Hammond and Mary, Mary. Although gospel was the impetus into the world of music, his love of soul, jazz and R&B has propelled his musical career and allowed him to venture into album production. Keith Ford, after a 15 year hiatus, returned to the stage and lends the essential rhythmic sounds of the acoustic guitar. His collaboration with Jenna resulted in "Table For One", 'I'm What You Get', 'No More' and 'Change In Me". His on-stage infectious smile and intensity further promotes the lauded energy of this band. Keyboardist, Ben Maney drifts somewhere between Earth and Sky. He has the powerhouse chops of a bluesman but mingles this with ragtime, jazz, swing and alternative styles, producing an original sound reminiscent of Randy Newman and Ray Charles. Backbone rhythm and percussion is brought by Kevin Redding, California native with true rock and roll roots. He has been performing professionally since the age of 15, heavily influenced by The Who, Chick Corea, Tower of Power and Buddy Guy. Needless to say, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy "I'm What You Get" but rather than tell you we prefer that you be your own judge and encourage your feedback. These songs are a true testament of how the human spirit endures and by the combination of musical instruments and words, those experiences transcend to a multitude of human emotions and events that can and will touch another somewhere down the road. WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY: The Daily Times Considered one of the most blistering female blues vocalists around. The Quality of the Cool Friends elevates each song into a mind-bending experience. Add in the camaraderie between the musicians, and the onstage energy is a natural ebb-and-flow of good-natured fun and a lightning-charged blues maelstrom. One of the best vocalists in the East Tennessee music scene, and why her name has always been on the marquee for almost three decades. A smoking hot record with no shortage of experience spread all over. Tennessee Valley Jazz & Blues Foundation A magical musical chemistry with Jefferson being the straw that stirs the drink Metro Pulse Voted as Knoxville's "Best Blues Band", 2 years running City View Magazine What do you get when you take a sultry, powerhouse singer, add seven long-time friends, talented blues musicians, and ask them to put together a show? Incredible music is one result and the other is the band Jenna & Her Cool Friends Album produced by G. Glyn Loyd Copyright/Jenna & Her Cool Friends, 2013.
