Ever so often, a song comes along that sweeps everyone up in its lyrics, melody and message; you haven’t heard it before, but it seems to have been part of your life’s soundtrack for years. The appeal goes beyond genre or demographic – it just feels good, whatever your age or walk in life. A song like that lasts for generations, an anthemic touchstone that becomes a part of society’s fabric.
“The Jelly Bean Jar,” the latest release from Nashville/Memphis songbird Camille Harrison, is that kind of song. Harrison’s career as a performer, songwriter, producer and recording engineer has taken her around the world and to every corner of America; whether nailing parts as a session singer in Nashville, wowing audiences on concert stages and in clubs, or tracking custom albums for other artists, she’s built a reputation as a “pro’s pro” who can make the music come alive. Drawing from that deep well, Harrison and award-winning co-writer, Don Pfrimmer, spin “The Jelly Bean Jar’s” poignant, positive lyrics into a melody most will sing along with on their second hearing. Have you heard it before? No, it’s new and original – it just seems like you’ve known this song all your life.
Released as a single, “The Jelly Bean Jar” sports a top-drawer arrangement and world-class production – not to mention Harrison’s sweet/bright/delightful vocal turn. Just in time for the holidays, “The Jelly Bean Jar” is available for download on iTunes and other stores.
