CD Review – Jenny Simpson: Jenny Simpson

Jenny Simpson – Jenny Simpson

Mercury Records

With a voice very similar to a young Trisha Yearwood, newcomer Jenny Simpson enters the race of female vocalist with some heavy artillery on her team.  Produced by Garth Fundis, and featuring some of the finest musicians in Nashville, her debut record for Mercury shows tremendous potential. Leading off with the hit “Ticket Out Of Kansas,” she offers a healthy dose of inspiration on this “country girls gonna make it” tune. On the inside jacket, she emits the thousand watt smile that gives her the girl next door look. Being from Nashville made her trip to music row a short one, but not before she got college behind her. Again, she seems to be following in the footsteps of Yearwood. She fills the album with songs of pain and pleasure.  “Foolish As That May Be” is simply brilliant. “One Word” tells the sad tale of a young man asking his girlfriend to marry him and being turned down.  Things get rocking on “So I Kissed Him,” written by Jenny and Ray Methvin.  The CD ends with the beautiful ballad, “Til Then.” This is a first class album from a star destined to shine bright.
