International country star Jessica Lynn recently released her new acoustic EP, Reimagined, on all music streaming platforms. The EP consists of four songs previously released by the artist that she reworked as emotional piano ballads. Born out of her wildly successful livestreams during the pandemic, the EP features Jessica performing solo on piano and vocals.
Taste of Country premiered Jessica’s Reimagined EP, saying “The pandemic inspired a slow down and her best, most honest work yet.” The writer notes that “there’s nowhere for the powerhouse vocalist to hide on each piano-led version…Lynn shows tremendous patience and range throughout the verses and chorus of the song. It’s heartbreaking.”
MORE ABOUT THE EP
After the pandemic forced Jessica to cancel her 100-city, 14-country tour, Jessica pivoted to doing weekly livestream performances on the piano for her hundreds of thousands of fans online. Many of her viewers challenged her to play different styles of music as well as different arrangements of her own songs. At the request of a UK fan, Jessica reworked her song, “Not Your Woman,” as a ballad on the spot. Jessica recalls, “Everyone in the stream urged me to eventually release it…and here we are!”
Jessica restructured three other previously released songs into lush piano ballads. In a recent interview with American Songwriter Magazine, the classically trained pianist shows a new depth in her artistry, both as a songwriter and musician. These stripped-down versions “invited the lyrical messaging to penetrate through in a meaningful way.”
