Biography

JLE, also known as Jennifer Louise Edison, a 22 year old singer/songwriter was born on October 7, 1980 in the Detroit metropolitan area and raised in a suburb just north of Detroit known as Southfield, Michigan where she began singing at an early age. She is the youngest of 4 siblings and comes from a singing family from which her great-aunt, Florence Ballard sang with the Supremes. As a young girl she sang in the church choir where her grandfather was the pastor. She recently began writing lyrics and vocal arrangements to the music of her oldest brother (3 years her senior) Charles, a musician, songwriter, producer and recording engineer. She has also written lyrics and performed vocals for music written by her father, Raymond Edison. Jennifer has demonstrated versatility in her musical style and abilities and insists on positive lyrics and messages in her songs. She is a vital component of the family formed entity called True Inspiration Productions for The Song of Song Records from which her current songs were produced and where Jennifer, her brother Charles and her father Raymond are the principle participants. Her favorite and most influential artists are Brandy, Whitney Houston, Tamia, The Winans and Commissioned. Her music shows the smoother side of R&B with a very modern flare. The album features a unique blend of R&B that embraces smooth ballads, grooving mid-tempos, a few hip hop club bangers and venturing into soft rock.

Lyrics

Not This Time

Written By: Jennifer L Edison

Verse:
Had me falling on the ground happiness nowhere around rain still falling pound by pound couldn't see through all the clouds looking back I can't believe how I could not just up and leave I should have had more faith in me but I learned eventually
Chorus:
Nobody, nobody, can stop me now Nobody, nobody, can take my crown Nobody, nobody, can pull me down No, not this time Nobody, no matter, what they say Nobody, nobody, can ruin my day Happiness, nobody, can take it away No, not this time
Verse:
Now that I know my true friends won't let it happen again no way can I just let you win can't let you back in but I'm happy now that I know you let your true colors show you will reap just what you sew and I'm glad I let you go
Bridge:
Won't let it all get to me cause from now on your history I'm sick of all this using me won't let it be that you're affecting me so please believe that I gotta leave

Not Picky

Written By: Jennifer L Edison

Verse:
Now that we finally have time to spend I don't care what we do just don't want this day to end feels like forever since the last time we were together but really it was only yesterday, so whatever it is we'll talk about it baby we can stay in or go out baby, not picky about what you say just don't let nothing get in our way
Chorus:
Kick back in the house watching movies relax on the couch we'll go to sleep not picky about where we should be as long as you're with me, babeh dinner with the table set for two dancing in the corner of the room not picky about what we should do as long as I'm with you, babeh
Verse 2:
I'm not particular about what we do just as long as I can spend some time with you when we're together we just have a special chemistry that I've never found with someone else so I think that we were meant to be, it seems to be our destiny and with that said I just want you all to myself so it don't matter, don't matter, don't matter no it don't matter, don't matter, don't matter we can go anywhere you want to baby I don't care we can kick back and relax

I Love You

Written By: Jennifer L Edison

Chorus:
You were always there for me (A friend whenever I needed) always had time to share with me (Your shoulder was always there for leaning) and you took good care of me (When everybody else was leaving) loved me unconditionally (Your love gave me something to believe in) and I love, I love you, I love you, I love you, I do
Verse:
You were always there when I needed you all of me problems you helped me through even stuck by me when I acted a fool glad that I have a friend so true, so thankful for you and I love
Verse:
Oh sometimes I think to myself I do believe that you are an angel sent from heaven above to brighten my day oh to shine your light my way and that's why I say, I love you
Bridge:
It's me you're always thinking of between us there's so much trust I thank the Lord God above for bringing me so much love
