Webb to kick off CD tour 2/6
"Jennifer Webb has become both a friend and an inspiration to me since beginning work on this project in June 2002," Pennington said. "She is an artist who knows what she wants and has both the work ethic and the energy to see that it gets done properly. She has what many singers donít ó an original sound." After working with Jennifer, Pennington agreed to produce her debut album. Together they selected songs from successful songwriters, enlisted an array of professional musicians and contracted with the Toys In The Attic recording studio in Lexington. Pennington also assisted with many of the vocals, instrumentals and harmonies
"I canít say enough about my producer JP Pennington, without him I would have been lost," Jennifer said. "He not only produced the album, he wrote several of the songs as well as sang harmony vocals. He also played lead guitar, rhythm guitar, piano overdubs and mandolin. I could not have asked for more." Jennifer is not only grateful to Pennington ó and Les Taylor of Exile ó she is also honored to work with them. "These guys have accomplished so much in the music business, and to have them take time out for me has been so exciting," she said. After many months in the studio, her debut album "Cloud 10" was completed.
"Iím so proud of this album. I have been blessed to work with some of the most talented musicians, songwriters and singers in the business," Jennifer said. "It takes so many people to make something like this come together, and come together well, and I am so thankful that I have been able to accomplish that," she said. Jennifer Partin Webb, born and raised in Noetown, is the daughter of Larry and Kathy Partin. She first sang to audiences at Beans Fork Baptist Church, where her grandfather, the late Rev. James E. Partin was a preacher.
Jennifer cherishes the days in Middlesboro when she was a cheerleader at Middlesboro High School and remembers singing on team buses with her friends. And those days of four-wheeling in the mountains with her then-boyfriend, now-husband Tommy Webb. She and her husband currently reside in Winchester with their daughter, Whitney. Jennifer has already accumulated a vast fan club base. After hiring a firm in Ohio for web-site management, marketing and distribution, fans can now visit Jenniferís website at www.Jennifer-Webb.com. Fans can also refer to the website for specific times and locations of future appearances.
During her visit to Middlesboro, special collectorís items will be given away at the events to fan club members already signed up through the website. WRIL Country FM 106.3 in Pineville has been airing the album and has scheduled an interview for Friday and a live remote for Saturday. Kyle Pritchard, host of the weekday morning "Wake Up Show" said listener response has been very successful. "We actually acquired a copy of Jenniferís CD ĎCloud 10í many weeks ago. Response is terrific. My favorite is "Side Effects," Prichard said. Jenniferís performances have included opening for national acts Andy Griggs, Highway 101, T. Graham Brown and Exile. She has also performed the National Anthem for sporting events, most recently at a Lexington Legends baseball game.
Jenniferís appearances locally will include an interview on Friday from 7 to 10 a.m. on 106.3 Real Country "Wake Up Show" with Kyle Pritchard; a CD signing on Saturday and live remote with 106.3 Real Country at Wal-Mart from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; FYE Record Store promotion during the Middlesboro Mall event; and the grand finale will be a live performance beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday evening at Middlesboro Mall and live remote hosted by WXJB with Bo Farmer, CD signing and promo tour kickoff. Jennifer and her team ask that local residents show their support by attending the events, joining the fan club and purchasing the CD. They promise "the main priority will be to have fun and entertain."
"I would like to thank everyone involved in making this happen. This is a dream come true for me, and I know I couldnít do it without all of the love and support from family, friends and fans. The album sounds really good, and I canít wait to be able to share the music with all of you," said Jennifer. "I am shooting for the moon. If we only get half way there, we will keep trying. Iíve always loved the saying, "If you never give up, you will never fail."
