Female acoustic singer/songwriters beware, there’s a new kid on the block. Welcome Whitney Ann Jenkins to the party. With a name like Whitney Ann Jenkins this reviewer was imagining glossy country talking about run down cars and poor girl problems. Well that’s not really true. First off the music isn’t country, it’s acoustic pop/folk backed by a seasoned outfit (the platonic guy friends). A short background check on Whitney reveals that she is a world traveler, actress and all around hard worker.

Break my heart So I can write a song This happiness can’t last too long I need some pain to rhapsodize a melody sprung from your hurtful lies
Not sure if she is writing from experience or making a reference to how an artist needs pain to write…but great concept! Other lyrics such as in “Let Me Feel” points to trouble being able to feel emotion. Sounds like maybe this writer needs some drama to write! AND THAT IS OK, she’s an actress for crying out loud! Plus, how else can listeners release their emotions through an artist’s songs properly without the artist going through the same issues the listener is going through? Whitney experienced something like this at an early age while watching the movie “My Girl.”
