My Name's Not Red

(30 June 2004) Jennifer Marks recently released her self-titled album (Bardic Records (USA) 171002-2, 2004). This singer/songwriter has distinctive vocals, beautiful lyrics, and an engaging sound. With a degree in music and business from NYU, she quickly got involved in the music industry as an Indie artist. Jennifer Marks is her fourth album.

The first track, "Live," is featured in the new Spielbergmovie, Terminal. This is not the first time her songshave been featured in films. Some of Jennifer's songs can be heard on the soundtracks of independent filmsincluding Pictures of Baby Jane Doe, starring Calista Flockhart (1995) and Snow Days, starringBernadette Peters (2001). "Live" delivers a spicy start tothe album, with an upbeat and catchy sound.

Her fresh sound ranges from the buoyancy of "Live," "Any Other Way" and "Avalanche" to the more ballad oriented "Raggedy Ann" and "Fragile." These more mellow tunes exhibit Jennifer's vulnerability and tenderness with her expressive lyrics and stunning vocals.

This pop/rock Indie artist has certainly come into herown in her latest album. Her poignant points of view comeacross in her songwriting and her music brings in a uniquesound and a breath of fresh air. She easily hooks you with toe-tapping tunes and a most memorable sound. Jennifer Marks is a great album!
