JEN BUXTON: Don’t Change Your Plans: CD

Jul 18, 2011

Jen Buxton is no-gimmick folk singer/ songwriter from New South Wales. It was amazing to learn that she is only twenty-one; her voice has depth and soul that is rarely heard from somebody who is so young. The nine songs on this album are about love and regret, written in a way that’s raw but never overly dramatic. Some of my favorite lyrics are in the title track: “She asks if I’ll be checking in alone; you know leaving just reminds me that there’s no one waiting for me at home.” I can’t wait to hear more from this girl, because Don’t Change Your Plans is a solid, timeless album that will appeal to a lot of different people.
