Tell Me What You See

Independent Release

3.5 out of 5 stars

Release Date:  February 22, 2011

 

Colorado-based singer-songwriter Jaden Carlson has really solidified herself as homegrown talent over the last few years – she’s released her debut album, played many local and national shows (including Telluride Blues & Brews Festival) and shared the stage with artist including Michael Franti & Spearhead, Trevor Hall and Melvin Seals.

Carlson’s new album Tell Me What You See is a mighty fine sophomore follow up to her debut and continues to showcase a young musician growing by leaps and bounds as a performer and more importantly, a songwriter.

Tell Me What You See features 12 mostly-upbeat songs, including 10 that were written by the young Carlson herself.  Highlights include the album’s upbeat opener “Soulshine,” the instrumental “A Song,” and the album’s first single, “We’re All One,” featuring a guest appearance by Keaton Simons. Albums guests are many and include: Eric Grant (The Attack Plan), Dave Shul (Michael Franti & Spearhead), Chris Steel (Trevor Hall) and Rob Drabkin.

It’s something special when you can see a local Colorado musician grow before your eyes and Tell Me What You See is another fine step in Carlson’s progression as an artist.
