Review: Jenn Bostic, The Maze, by Peter Palmer
Nashville based songstress Jenn Bostic offers a choice of greetings: a handshake or a hug. Just as she's keeping her options open when it comes to musical genres.
Her first major album veers more towards pop than country – albeit pop with a dash of soul. The vocals emerging from her slender frame all carried expressive force.
Radio has smoothed her way across Britain. Simon Bates and Terry Wogan have given time to her US hit song, Jealous Of The Angels. In it, Jenn tentatively comes to terms with the crash that killed her musician father when she was ten.
Her partners – elder brother Jeff on bass guitar and UK drummer Belinda Webb on percussion – left the stage for this piece, where her voice soared above the keyboard with a still raw emotional charge.

Elsewhere, though, her mood sounded upbeat, even impish when exposing the music business in Superstar. Her Missin' A Man and Wait For Me aired feelings nearer to home.
At one point, the trio was joined by the opening act of singer-songwriter Emma Stevens and electric guitarist Sam Whiting. Together, they supplied a warm remedy for winter blues.
