Jennifer is from the West Midlands but is currently located in Israel working in a Christian centre and the sale of this EP is contributing towards her costs there. Recorded at Raindance Studios in Stourbridge, this is a neat collection of five songs that demonstrate Jennifer's skills as a songwriter and gifts as a singer. Got to say I was grabbed right from the first chorus of the catchy opener "Explorer". The songs were penned as a response to living in the Middle East and missing her friends and family back at home. I love the way she moves from the upbeat title cut to the more brooding "Homesick". The upshot is a well recorded indie project that puts Jennifer on the map and leaves me wanting to hear more of her songs.

Are there any other albums? Absolutely love the music and Jennifer's voice! If I had to make a 'me' cake, I'd probably use her album as one of the ingredients!

Superb EP. There's a real sense of deep emotion and soul in the music, that cries out to connect with the listener. This accompanied with sincere, journey-man lyrics makes for a real winner. I've been a Christian sound engineer for over two decades and cannot recall anything quite like this. IMHO one not to missed.

Yes, I know I may be bias as I'm Jen's sister, but it is all true! Jen has incredible talent, with the most amazing voice but what's more has a heart for God. Believe me there is more to come! For further info email me!

Jennifer Robins has just showed us the tip of a very talented iceburg! This EP is right out there with the best. She has penned some of the most original, down to earth and heart felt lyrics so far this century.
Buy the CD for yourself, then buy it again for a friend, then again for the neighbours... you get the point!
