Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

JEN SYGIT

So Long Pollyanna

2009-05-11

Very cool, iPod worthy, folk/pop/rock/country/blues CD by Lansing based singer-songwriter Jen Sygit. I played the CD for my wife, and listening to the first track; Lousy Bridge, she immediately said "who is this! I would pay to see her perform!" Jen reminded me of the Indigo Girls in several tracks and Michelle Shocked on others. Favorite tracks were her "country flavored" #1 Lousy Bridge , #2, Mockingbird, #7 The Whole Truth (reminded me of Levon Helm's last masterpiece) and #10- Never Existed. All songs are terrific. very well produced. Seth Bernard contributes on several tracks. There would be nothing better than a hot night at Meijer Garden, with Jen Sygit on stage.
