Jen Fellman: Forbidden Drive [CD]
Forbidden Drive is the debut music album from vocal powerhouse Jen Fellman. Featuring songs from the worlds of jazz, standards, Broadway, and French chanson, Jen says, “I sing to share my story and explore love and identity. The songs on this album draw from a diverse repertoire of love songs that tell stories we all share – regardless of whom we love.” Poignant and beautiful, Forbidden Drive maps the journey of a romantic relationship from beginning to end, and the path from heartache to hope. The album musically embodies Jen's journey as an artist and as a gay woman while exploring her life between NYC & Paris. Jen has performed to sold-out audiences in both the US and France. She now takes you deeper into her personal and musical journey in this one of a kind compilation. Produced by Grammy Nominee and 12-Time Emmy Winner Michael Croiter, with original arrangements and orchestrations by Music Director, Arranger, & Orchestrator Bob Goldstone, Forbidden Drive invites you into Jen's world, and onto a journey of your own.
Album highlights include “Stardust” (by Hoagy Carmichael), “Les Parapluies de Cherbourg” (by Oscar & Grammy-winner Michel Legrand from the film Les Parapluies de Cherbourg), an enchanting original song “New York Treasure” (written by Jen Fellman and Music Director/Arranger/Orchestrator Bob Goldstone), plus songs from Broadway shows like Mack & Mabel, Show Boat, and Flower Drum Song. The album is topped off with a moving duet of “Happiness” from Stephen Sondheim’s Passion between Jen Fellman & Broadway star Margo Seibert (Rocky, In Transit) – the first time this song has been recorded by two women.
