JESSICA WOLFF – Grounded (2017)
Singer, actress, stunt-woman, martial artist, extreme sports junkie, JESSICA WOLFF is a very independent and busy young woman. Her first passion though is music and since she began singing and performing in her native Finland when she was just twelve years old, making music has been her abiding delight, the consequence of which is a raising, promising musical career. “Grounded” is JESSICA WOLFF new album (her second), showcasing the talents of not only an accomplished singer, but also a strong songwriter.
Many specialized music magazines and critics raved about JESSICA WOLFF’s debut album. This second effort “Grounded” is a much more elaborated piece of work mixing melodic rock punch with a power rock&pop feeling.
Jessica’s vocal performance has grown considerably; getting the super-talented Sofia Lilja (Nubian Rose) as vocal coach has paid its dues.
Opener ‘Reckless’ is a declaration of attitude, all piss and vinegar, with Jessica belting out the lyrics with a come and try to knock me down chip on her shoulder.
This mind-set continues on ‘Playing For Keeps’, title track ‘Grounded’, the rocking ‘Roots’ and the bouncy ‘Magic Castle’, all of which are great slabs of melodic Rock / pop with bucket loads of vitality thrown into the mix for good measure.
Of course there’s a couple of ballads and poppier songs, however quite solid and really well played, arranged and performed.
With a tight production, punchy (and very good) musicianship, a young Lady with a strong voice and tons of attitude, there’s a lot to like about this ‘Grounded’, JESSICA WOLFF.
Oh, and she looks gorgeous…
