Jerin Falkner

Singer/songwriter releases Acoustic Journal One

By Angela Jossy on September 27, 2007

Almost exactly a year after the release of Almost Completely Happy, Jerin Falkner announces the release of her new album, Acoustic Journal One. Loaded with 17 solo acoustic tracks, it times in at almost 60 minutes.

“Even though I’m the artist, I have to say, ‘Wow. It’s epic’” says Falkner. “Aside from die-hard fans, a select few people are going to bump this disc from start to finish in their cars. To tell you the truth, I don’t even think it’s bump-able given the complete lack of background instrumentation. My goal, however, is to release this album as a writer, and as a human whose career can be measured in more than six love songs per year.”   

Falkner says AJO reflects the last several months of her life as a writer interpreting her world through music. She says its simple, honest, imperfect and a creative smatter of color on a purposefully under-produced canvas. Falkner’s lyrics range from deep and thought provoking to sarcastic and surprisingly blunt. Each song is deliberately and gracefully delivered with her signature smoky yet ethereal voice.

Only 300 copies of AJO will be released, then it’s off to iTunes. For more information, visit
