Nikki Jean at World Cafe Live, Oct. 18

by uristocrat contributor
Nikki Jean would travel crosscountry, working on songs with collaborators who would top any list of the greatest songwriters of all time.

The plan was inspired, but also wild and improbable. Who could imagine that a new artist, still in her early 20s, could reach out to a wish list of Hall of Fame songwriters, and that so many would say yes?

What emerged is a compact musical history: the girl group sound, Motown, classic pop, Philly Soul, a place where country literally meets hip—hop. Linked by Nikki Jean’s warmth and her infectious joy. The challenge was to take these diverse influences, this geographical and musical range, and make it flow. ‘PENNIES IN A JAR’ accomplishes this beautifully.
