The LMF Review: Jennifer Hope – Velvet FireApril 10th, 2013 at 11:33 am by Kyle Bloom under THRS Live Music
Most of the time when you grab a fresh piece of music, whether it’s from your favorite artist or a new one, it’s takes a listen or two to get into the groove and to grasp a feel for it. This was not the case when I popped in Jennifer Hope’s Velvet Fire into my CD player. I was instantly hooked by the opening cords of the opening track, Taker. A great guitar driven intro really grabs a hold of you but as soon as Jennifer’s vocal enters the picture, you know you’re in for a great journey.
Her beautiful voice reminds me very much of Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries and the music really sets itself apart from anything else out there with it’s edgy synthesizers underlining the tracks and it works out really well especially in the tunes Maze of Lies and Rapture.
Velvet Fire is a true gem that really focuses on the true talent of Jennifer Hope as her words shine across her powerful voice. No wonder it caught the eye and ear of the Mr. Edward Van Halen, who sponsored this project. Velvet Fire is comprised of 9 amazing Jennifer Hope-penned tunes and 1 breathtaking rendition of U2′s With Or Without You and was produced by Warren Huart whose resume includes The Fray, Aerosmith and Eve 6.
Velvet Fire must be included in everyone’s collection and Jennifer Hope’s name is one you’ll be hearing about for a long time. Click here to visit Jennifer’s website to grab your very copy of Velvet Fire.
