Blog #52: What’s on Your Christmas List?

From The Blog Series… 365 Blogs To Finding Pinocchio A Home What’s on Your Christmas List?  How about “A Very Jenny Christmas” to get you ready for the Holiday Season? What do you get? Well, you get 10 of my favorite Christmas songs, plus one of my own, “Holiday Cheer” (Let’s Take Care Of Each Other). I got the idea of recording this album after spending the Holiday Season street performing around Manhattan singing my favorite Christmas songs. A friend suggested how great it would be for me to record a Christmas Album. While at first I was hesitant to do it, I followed my gut and took the journey! And so…  “A Very Jenny Christmas” was born!

Blog #51: What Are Your 2014 Goals?

From The Blog Series… 365 Blogs To Finding Pinocchio A Home What are your 2014 Goals? Have you been thinking about them yet? Well, you know the best way to jump start your life is to do just that! For me, the most effective way to achieve my dreams has been setting exciting, challenging and tangible goals on a regular monthly basis and then watching myself make progress with these goals. If there is no PROGRESS, then there is no excitement, and then, of course, you’re gonna give up pretty quickly. And you know what, before ya know it, 2015 has come and you’re nowhere closer to your dreams then you were in 2014. Now… I know, believe me I know, there’s always gonna be that little chatter box in your head giving you a million reasons NOT to follow your heart, and that’s ok! That’s all part of the PROCESS . That voice is just there to guide you immediately towards the other voice, THE ONE IN YOUR HEART that says, “Just pick up the pen and write. Write from your heart. Write from your gut.” And once you start to do that regularly, and that’s the key here,[…]

Blog #48: Songwriting Tips from NSAI’s Guest, Jon Vezner

From The Blog Series… 365 Blogs To Finding Pinocchio A Home Last night I had the pleasure of attending an inspiring NSAI event with my songwriting partner, Jason Waters, at Five Towns College with Grammy Award Winning Songwriter, Jon Vezner , as the Guest Speaker.   Jason Waters, Jon Vezner & Jennifer Vazquez  What a pure joy it was to listen to Jon’s well constructed and heartfelt tunes. There is nothing that gets me higher than experiencing a GREAT songwriter, up, close and personal. And, sitting in on that Master Class provided both Jason and myself with key reminders for what tools and rules allow for the creation of a GREAT SONG! (Be sure to check out Jon Vezner when you get a chance. He is not only a great songwriter, artist and musician, but a solid person all around. And while you’re at it, check out his musical partner Jeff Gilkinson! Wow, what a player and songwriter!) Here’s some reminders for ALL you songwriters out there:  ~ TO BE EFFECTIVE as a songwriter, CREATE TENSION in the song, either in the Melody, the Tempo or the Lyric.  ~ EVERY LINE of your song must act as an ACCELERATER for the next one.  ~ SHOW IT! DON’T TELL IT! ~ BE SIMPLE:[…]
