We’ve all heard of Nikki Jean. Whether it was through her candid YouTube diary or her work with Lupe Fiasco, Nikki was always full of sincerity and spirit. Three years ago, she embarked on an ambitious journey to travel cross-country and collaborate with the who’s who of American songwriting.
What resulted was Pennies In A Jar, an album of twelve original songs co-written with Nikki and a grab-bag of songrwriting legends of various genres and time periods: Bob Dylan, Carole King, Burt Bacharach, Carly Simon, Lamont Dozier, Jimmy Webb, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, Paul Williams, Jeff Barry, Thom Bell, Bobby Braddock, and Luigi Creatore. The sound plays out like a masterly woven history of pop, and beautifully displays Nikki’s growth as an artist along with her insatiable passion we’ve all grown to love.
