Third Time's the Charm for Jennifer Stanley on "Rain"

Artist:  Jennifer Stanley
Label:  Independent


Jennifer Stanley may be a new artist to most Christian music fans, but she is not technically a new artist. "Rain," produced by Margaret Becker, is actually Stanley’s third release. As a veteran of the road, playing around 100 dates a year, "Rain" should help her extend her fan base even farther.

Stanley co-wrote half of "Rain"’s dozen tracks, including three written with Becker. Fellow artist Kelly Minter contributes background vocals throughout much of the project, and Becker lends her voice to a few tracks as well. The album’s biggest surprise is a cover of Van Morrison’s “Whenever God Shines His Light,” performed here as a duet with Ray Boltz, who unearths a pleasing grittiness to his voice.

Fans of Cheri Keaggy and Carolyn Arends are likely to become fans of Jennifer Stanley as well.
