Whitney Ann Jenkins

Whitney Ann Jenkins And Her Platonic Guy Friends

Female acoustic singer/songwriters beware there’s a new kid on the block. Welcome Whitney Ann Jenkins to the party.

Jeff Michaels

Jeff Michaels And His Townie Girl

The title track “Townie Girls” has a very strong REM overtone to me which is a great thing. It’s interesting, if you visit Jeff’s website you’ll be surprised to learn that you’ve probably heard his music before. Jeff’s dedication to the independent music scene has been a lifelong cause and several of his songs have been licensed […]
