About the Album
In her journey, Jennifer left Deep Ellum in search of the wonderful coffee houses of San Francisco. In the process, her music and stories went on an unexpected hiatus when she was swept up in the dot.com craze taking over the city. Two decades later, the stories were ready to come back to life. While living on a Sonoma County vineyard, Jennifer dusted off her old songbook, resurrected her songs and began performing them live in Occidental every Friday. Three years and thirty new songs later, her stories have evolved.
This album is the first of several to come and tells the story of leaving Deep Ellum. "Bring Me a Flower" is the first song she wrote upon arriving in San Francisco. "Fallen Down" is the last song she would write for fifteen years. "Cherry Red" and "You Let Me" were written while she performed at Dave's Art Pawn Shop in Dallas as a teenager. Many are songs that waited nearly two decades to be written, and complete this collection of songs titled, "Something I Didn't Do".
