Jen Leonhardt live at the Knitting Factory, West, on Hollywood Boulevard in the Galaxy complex: Soft voice, poignent lyrics, amplified acoustic guitar. You shut your eyes and listen to her lyrics, the songs and voice are pure and soft. Then, switchblade: the next song is high octane - strong, fast and loud - makes me want to hear her grind out some chords on an amp'ed Fender.
Jen's voice reminds me of Dylan's early days...her pitch changes along with her lyrics...it's like a hard drivin' storm. Recommended for intelligent listeners and lovers of Bruce Springsteen, Carly Simon, Bob Dylan and Janice Joplin. But, she's not a copy of anybody.
