The first track, "Live," is featured in the new Spielberg

have been featured in films. Some of Jennifer's songs
can be heard on the soundtracks of independent films
including Pictures of Baby Jane Doe, starring
Calista Flockhart (1995) and Snow Days, starring
Bernadette Peters (2001). "Live" delivers a spicy start to
the album, with an upbeat and catchy sound.
Her fresh sound ranges from the buoyancy of "Live,"
"Any Other Way" and "Avalanche" to the more ballad
oriented "Raggedy Ann" and "Fragile." These more
mellow tunes exhibit Jennifer's vulnerability and
tenderness with her expressive lyrics and stunning
This pop/rock Indie artist has certainly come into her
own in her latest album. Her poignant points of view come
across in her songwriting and her music brings in a unique
sound and a breath of fresh air.
She easily hooks you
with toe-tapping tunes and a most memorable sound.
Jennifer Marks is a great album!
