This gal has a great voice plus a bunch of pickers that can flat out pick—great material too—can’t wait to hear what she does next

Nice smooth tapping number

(live performance review)
Jennifer Brantley, (accompanied by guitarist/husband David Hand) is nothing short of a complete vocal powerhouse. While I can hear the Allison Krauss influence in her voice, it is clear that she has something extra special in her approach. Not only did her vocals lock me in, but her lyrics further sold me as she sings with so much conviction and feeling.

Women like Jennifer Brantley are knocking boldly on the clubhouse door again. And this one's bringing a 12-string guitar and a well pinned songbook of storytelling originals.

The theme that seems the most consistent is coming through “the storm” to realization of love and home. It may sound simplistic, but through Jennifer’s eyes we see redemption among the questions in a way that is part story and all heart.
Robert Barry Francos - Jersey Beat (Jun 6, 2007)
Jennifer Brantley, who has found Country Rock for herself, publishes with "Breakdown" her second album. Producer of the album is no one less then Bil VornDick, who has worked with many big names, like Allison Krauss before. The album contains 12 songs that leave a full picture of harmony for us.
Christian Lamitschka - Country Home Magazine (Germany) (Jan 8, 2008)
She has a strong voice and VornDick has surrounded it with
good country arrangements.
All Music Guide (Sep 9, 2007)
A rising star on the Americana scene.

It's a fine CD
Doug Dick - WVGN FM St Thomas Virgin Islands (Nov 27, 2007)
taste of music that blends strong songwriting with the musical influences of both the deep South and the West Coast.

You just might be bringing Country-Rock through the early 21st Century. I like it because it's classic, but doesn't seem retro. There's no nostalgia trip in which to be trapped.
Greg Debonne, Music Supervisor, LA CA. (Aug 15, 2006)
It's refreshing to hear some kind of artistry in the age of synthesizer driven boy bands. As a program director, it takes a special talent to catch my attention, and this CD did. Any of the tracks could easily be a contending single on any rotation.
