Biography

Jennifer Paskow wants to speak to the true humanity of her listener, and because of this her songs impart a vulnerability that draws one into her world and makes it theirs for the moment. Her honey like vocals, naked lyrics and unaffected delivery combine to create an earthiness reminiscent of the singer/songwriters of the 70's that she so admires.

Enveloped by music from a young age, Jennifer's parents introduced her to the songs of her great childhood loves Carole King, Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan. Inspired by her newfound friends and her new piano teacher, she began to write her own songs at the age of 9. Jennifer has since relied on writing as a means to understand herself and her environment. It's usually only after the song has been written and sung many times that she feels the process is complete.

In college Jennifer was awakened to the many treasures of the jazz world. Billie Holiday and Abbey Lincoln especially impressed Jennifer with their emotional expressiveness and have since been a major influence on her vocal style. However, it wasn't until after college that her musical path started to become apparent. Post graduate life took her in several directions, from freelance caterer for music videos and t.v. commercials to studying for a Master's degree in music therapy. While aiming to heal others with music Jennifer was reminded of the powerful healing effect making music had on herself. She sat down with her guitar and began writing the songs that would eventually result in her debut CD, Somewhere to Rest My Head, a collection of music which is deeply personal, yet tremendously universal.

Jennifer has lent her vocals to Anticipate Recordings electronic artist Ezekiel Honig, trip hop band Beyond the Bliss and the Dekel Bor modern jazz trio.

Lyrics

Beautiful I Remember You

Written By: Jennifer Paskow

It's three weeks and I'm on way to finding out where I want to stay

And there is so much, so much
I want to say, but the thoughts and the fears keep getting in my way

Everytime I want to see you
you are there
Everytime I want to feel you
you are there
In my mind, I go there often
to get alittle of you inside of my head

Beautiful I Remember you
wise and kind
I'm so glad our lives have intertwined

With all this love and respect
there is no doubt
we can connect again

I'm not gonna run around anymore
New York City is my home for sure

Everytime I want to see you
you are there
Everytime I want to feel you
you are there
In my mind, I go there often
to get alittle of you
inside of my head

Beautiful I Remember you
wise and kind
I'm so glad our lives have intertwined

So Much Right

Written By: Jennifer Paskow

Loveliness is what I'm looking for
Loveliness is knocking at my door
I am stuck inside
But I don't know why
Cause this is more than everything
I've dreamed of

So what's wrong with me
that I can not see
the forest through the trees
I've been wasting time
on petty thoughts of what is wrong
instead of what is right

And there is so much right
so much right
I wish I might sing for you tonight

So, I walk through my day
dignity inside of me
vowing to always believe in myself
if I don't see my greatness
I can not see yours
and I want to see

So whats wrong with me
that I can not see
the forest through the trees
I've been wasting time on
petty thoughts of what is wrong instead of what is right

And there is so much right
So much right
Wish I might sing for you tonight
