\'Jean Spencer writes the best songs this town has ever heard; they\'re honest, catchy, and unforgettable.\' \'Jean\'s voice is incredibly clear and strong...a riveting performance.\' --Flagpole Magazine, Athens, GA Jean Spencer is a well respected Athens songwriter who started out with the Athens rock band 28 Days. Her sound has evolved into a more acoustic, vocally oriented one, but the songs remain strong, sincere, and well crafted. In 2001, Jean was a finalist in two songwriting competitions sponsored by the Georgia Music Industry Association. She has appeared on \'It\'s Friday,\' \'Georgia Gazette,\' and \'Songsmiths,\' an NPR series that also features such Georgia musicians Patterson Hood, Randall Bramlett, Nathan Shepard, Vic Chesnutt, and the Indigo Girls. Jean was also a founding member of Bluewing, a short lived but well loved Athens female vocal trio. Old Magnolia is Jean\'s second CD (Where the Pavement Ends was the first), featuring William Tonks\' great dobro work and a love of vocal leads and harmonies. Recorded at the legendary John Keane Studio in Athens, GA, this CD includes Jean\'s latest songs, a couple of older favorites from the era of tapes (God Damn True Love, Winona), and the perfect cover for this collection, a live version of Ron Sexsmith\'s God Loves Everyone.
