"A truly incredible talented writer, singer and artist, is the best way to describe Jen Bye.”
- Gael Digital Media
"...Bye chooses to peel back the layers covering her soul, revealing bruises healed by time and a sense of grace that comes with age and personal evolution. What makes Bye’s new record powerful are the places she takes the listener; places of different vantage points from which and within the audience can feel the songs. Sometimes you’re taken back into the past as though it’s in the thick of a painful present. Sometimes the feeling is retrospective like an old faded photograph in the mind that never seems to fully decay. All of it’s real and none of it is."
- Greg Debonne, The MusicManor
“We hear thousands of songs and CDs and it's rare to come across as compelling an album that demands as much time to listen.This is a complete work - with a satisfying and substantial window into Bye's artistry and attitudes. The self-incrimination, surviving self-esteem, & genuine appreciation of life that is woven through all the lyrical lines & music are an artistic time capsule & one that should be opened again & again." ~EarBuzz.com
"Uber Alles California! Jen Bye (JB) is a godsend with the voice of an impish cherub with a tiny chip on her shoulder... it's practically impossible to find anything disappointing amidst her music. Bravo JB!"
- Ant Standring, Glasswerk UK
“Jen Bye delivers hard-hitting pop that isn't afraid to rock. Confronting topics such as personal liberation and conformity, Bye's lyrics cover a wide spectrum of emotions. And when presented by the singer's stirring voice, they are made all the more evocative...” ~Albert Vega, Music Connection Magazine
they all gotta get rich somehow....
...it hasn't been the same since
an impish cherub with a tiny chip on her shoulder...
What if earth was a prison?
brittle armor dissolving into dust
...calling me back home
don't hate! i'm just tellin it like it is...
an old faded photograph in the mind that never seems to fully decay

Desert Man is so passionately presented Jen. indeed you captured all those components of the dynamics in your vocals which ranged from a soft sensual purr and whisper and developed it more as the song builds and used your intuitive qualities and brought it further. edgy, a little raunchy at times but tempered with a variety of wonderful vocal texturing
bryon over at jam nights alternative....Ash Ferry's cool invention....yanno

Just wanted to say how much I admire that elevated hairdo of yours. I took a shower before bed a few nights back and I had the same 'do (without benefit of rollers) for three days. My daughters loved it!

Jen, you ROCK sister!! Keep up the great work. LOVE "Mexico"

Invincible.. heartfelt lyrics, great instrumentation, I really love this song's message for many reasons....

Love your music and thanks for the kind words on my site about "San Paku Eyes" I would love to play a solo and some "atmospherics" on one of your songs the next time U record something. The pocket your music is in is the kind of thing I enjoy playing on.
