Addison Road disband, Jenny Simmons branches out as soloist

THE SINGER/songwriter with popular group Addison Road, Jenny Simmons, will be releasing her debut solo album next year. 'The Becoming' is being produced by Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Third Day) and Seth Mosley (Newsboys) and will be issued on Fair Trade Services. "As a band, we have collectively decided to put a definite end to Addison Road," said the singer. Simmons, who started the band with her then-fiancĂ©, Ryan (now husband of 10 years), at Baylor University in Texas in 2000, says it's the best break-up she's ever been a part of. "I hate break-ups, but this was as beautiful as a split can be! The guys were tired of living out of buses and leaving their families behind. In our case it was taking a toll on our marriage to raise our daughter on the road, work together, and then try and be married at the end of the day. After our 2010 tour with Tenth Avenue North and Matt Maher, it became clear to each of us that God was releasing us from Addison Road and ushering each of us as individuals into new seasons." CR
