Age of Blame

Age of Blame

In a pre-release review from Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald, Kearney’s “…booming soul voice and smart, tight songs provide the pillars of the eight tunes. But her band adds some awesome voodoo.”

Lyrically, Age of Blame offers deeply personal and hopeful perspective on a myriad of subjects—the main theme being the importance of maintaining balance and love in an ever-evolving world where blame, fear, self-sabotage and deflection are all too easy to succumb to as human contact has receded.

The Year of The Ox

The Year of The Ox

On this second full-length stufio effort, Jen plucks the title track “Year of the Ox” from a placemat that depicted the animals of the Chinese Zodiac. That prompted research into some deeper Eastern philosophy and led to the discovery of the sacred Ox Herding Pictures. The story of this album is loosely based on those pictures as they apply to the taming of one’s mind, all delivered with funky grooves, silky transitions, infectious chorus lines and deep lyrical content.

With a playful intensity of horns and bass-driven, soulful funk grooves, Jen and the band conjure up their first full-length studio release. The variety of styles on this album range from straight-up funk to extremely danceable Latin jazz, where a 3-piece horn section and full percussion really set the tone. The vocals here are golden as well, flowing through the pipes of a woman who holds genuine soul and experience inside of her. The songs here blend sophisticated melodies and harmonies with sharp, story-like lyrics that offer snapshots of Jen Kearney’s world.
