Jenn Franklin

Errors and Admissions

Self-Released

From the soft focus image on the rear of Jenn Franklin’s Errors & Admissions EP, I was expecting some schmaltzy ballads, not the gutsy, intense pop/rock which I heard upon listening to the CD.

Opener “What Took You So Long” is a real statement of intent from the Lebanon, TN singer-songwriter. A terrific riff and powerful voice together with a punchy chorus demonstrate Franklin’s talent, while the edgy “Mercy” changes the pace and the poignant “Innocence To Lose” shows the diversity of her songwriting.

Anyone familiar with LA artist Cindy Alexander will appreciate what Jenn Franklin has to offer on this EP, and a full-length album can’t be too far behind.
