Big dynamics and big potential, Getintothis‘ Alan O’Hare on new Merseyside talent Jennifer Vaudrey.
If you like your pop big, bold and brassy, then Jennifer Vaudrey is your girl.
Hide Away From Love – the Scouser’s debut EP – is short and to the point, with three songs that aim for the big time. The production earmarks epic and the title-track hits the spot.
Hide Away From Love is a tune to move a mountain: big drums, classic dynamics, chiming guitars and a vocal that demands attention. To be fair, the song dominates the EP and Vaudrey needs five or six more as good as it to stand out from the pack. But this is a cracking start.
Listen to it again: you’ll hear the hurt of Stevie Nicks (I keep my heart in my pocket and songs on my sleeve… ) alongside the drama of, say, The Pierces, but with a vocal all of the singer’s own. In short, an artist finding their way and walking straight into their first big tune.
One to watch.
