Review -- JENNIFER JADE KERR -- Somehow It Always Does ...

SOMEHOW IT ALWAYS DOES …
Jennifer Jade Kerr
Golden Flame Records
9-out-of-10

Jennifer Jade Kerr may not be a household name to most, but she should be soon. Somehow It Always Does … was my first introduction to this talented lady, and it was only a stanza into the lead cut Suddenly Angels Came that I was doing a double take. I mean really, this gal’s voice blew me away on the song. It is a voice that simply demands the listener’s attention. It shouts I am singing for you, enjoy the experience, and guess what, you do enjoy it – very much.
Now you have to love the story where Kerr’s father bought her a guitar when she was 17, on a trip where he was supposed to be buying tractor parts. There is just something so … well so Saskatchewan about that story.
Now Kerr does play guitar here, but realistically, it is her voice that matters here. This girl could sing with the kitchen tap running as accompaniment, and it would still be fantastic.
Now in terms of music, Kerr’s website gives an insight into that. It states she “began performing her own material at open mic nights and songwriter circles during her university years, and after earning her BA in Religious Studies, she spent a year on the road with Christian music organization CREW Ministries as a member of the group Saltwater, releasing an album called In the Key of La.”
This is not honky tonk country with beers and brawls. Kerr’s music remains deeply spiritual. This is certainly Christian country, which is certainly one of the roots of country music. In that regard it may be an acquired taste for some, and may not be as commercial as it could be.
That is unfortunate, because it will keep Kerr’s voice from being heard by as large an audience as possible.
A fine country voice from Saskatchewan who can go as far as she desires, although she may need to go a bit more mainstream in the music selection to find broad radio play.
Still the voice, oh the voice … you have to check it out at www.jenniferjadekerr.com
