New york singer/songwriter Jennifer Maione is going contrary to her peers by making music rooted in emotion rather than fashion. Listening to her newest CD 'The Average Girl' it's obvious that she embraces rock's passion and power as her source of inspiration. The sound of Maione's music reflects a lifetime of listening to the greats of blues, folk and rock such as Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith and CSN & Young. She considers these artists to be the sparks that ignited her desire to create music. In an effort to hold onto these influences and make them her own, she created songs that blend seventies instrumentation with contemporary production ideas while exploring through her lyrics her own growth as an artist and a woman. Stay tuned for exciting changes to her website and upcoming gigs!!
