Episode 12 - Jennifer Faust @ The Ace
Sultry, deep ballads with real feeling and a voice to match.
This week we’re going back to the Ace in the Hole Pub to hear Jennifer
Faust and her backup band. Jennifer has a unique sound and her songs
seem to all have stories behind them. Like a number of previous shows,
Jennifer was new to the scene and she played on a week night… so the
audience was small. Note how the background noises start kinda high
but diminish as the show goes on. That’s a good indicator of how she
captured our attention. This was a really good show and I think you’ll
like it too.
As I’m sure you heard, one of her songs featured a scissors. While the song was sung a lot of us guys in the audience were well… kinda squirming… Jennifer told me later that the song was really about a housefly that was irritating her and not at all about a relationship gone bad… whew!
The Jennifers backup band was:
Michael Linder; Bass … Mike is an Ace in the hole regular and oversees open mike nights there. Thanks Mike!
