Jenny loves music. Without it, she withers like a plant deprived of water. Most of the major events in her life have either been about music or greatly enhanced because of it. During her year of awakening as an empath, she compiled a playlist that reflects the extreme spectrum of emotions and energy she dealt with. If the book didn't give you enough insight into her world, this soundtrack sure will.
Stream the soundtrack from Soundcloud or if you prefer the full soundtrack experience (hearing the songs embedded into specific scenes and passages of the book), then you can order that version from BookTrack.
Artists are shown in order of the song sequence as played on the soundtrack and the Booktrack digital/audio file.
The passion and talent of San Diego based singer-songwriter Trevor Davis are undeniable. This artist was born to do what he does — which is to make us feel whatever he commands with his piercingly poignant voice, lyrics and melodies.
Trevor spent a few years playing in an electronic duo until he was picked out of 48,000 contestants to audition for NBC’s The Voice. He made the Top 40, which led him to win a spot on Blake Shelton’s team for Season 4 of the hit NBC show. Trevor says being on the show was a blast and taught him a lot about himself as an artist.
It was tough picking which of Trevor's amazing songs to include in the soundtrack. I finally settled on "Across the Clouds" — the first time Nathan and Jenny are alone; and "Change" — a funky song that Rhonda can't get enough of.
Steve Collom is an Australian born singer songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist currently making his home in Los Angeles. Three world tours and many albums later, the results of his hard work and talent are evident everywhere you turn -- such as on shows like The Big Bang Theory, Young and Restless, the Fosters, Law and Order and many leading brands including Subway, AAA, Circle K, HGTV, Bravo and more.
Oh, and if that wasn't impressive enough, he is also a strong contender for a 2017 EMMY!
You only have your first dance with your first love once. Close your eyes and sway along with Jenny & Nathan to "Exchanged" -- then wake up with Jenny shouting out her Top 10 List as she learns how to "Shine, Shine, Shine".
Liz Akhavan, a solo artist from Minneapolis, MN, has a voice that invites you in, gives you a warm hug and then takes you somewhere magical. Her lyrics and writing style are more soulful than her years should allow, but the result is captivating.
"Two Steps Back" is a sweet, kick-butt song about over-coming the obstacles Jenny faces in her life. She performs it at the private greatest hits comeback tour for her favorite 'fans'.
Mitch & Bridge are the recording artists of Leisure Suite, a duo that emerged from the grime-riddled depths of Melbourne, Australia's inner-west, with a sound that is anything but begrimed.
There are love songs, and then there is "Ease Away". This song heightens the senses and emotions one breath, one beat at the time. It is the anticipation... the sensual (Silentium) torture that pulsates between Nathan and Jenny.
Metermaids, a Brooklyn-based duo consisting of emcees Sentence and Swell, often refer to themselves as “the Bad News Bears of hip-hop.” However, after teaming up with the X-Ecutioners DJ ROB SWIFT, receiving production from Grammy Award Winner 9th WONDER, and pulling in vocal contributions from indie-hop legends SAGE FRANCIS & BUCK 65, their music is set to turn that self-deprecation on its head.
Metermaids are not content to make hip-hop influenced by rock and roll, or vice versa, but rather attempt to find the space where the two styles combine to make something truly original. This ambition, combined with the electric live show which has been their trademark, leads one to believe that Metermaids won't be under the radar for too long.
Come to the party! "Turn the Lights Out" will make you love "hop-rock" even if you don't like hip-hop OR rock n' roll. These guys seriously know how to party — that's why Rhonda opens her Valentine's bash with this hit.
The Lonely Hunter is a young band from Houston, Texas with a lot of talent, energy, and passion. Their music is full of driving rhythms and catchy hooks. There is not a venue or crowd they've played for that's forgotten them. They love music, they play hard, and they capture the attention of their audiences every time.
The band currently consists of vocalist/guitarist Collin Brewer, guitarist Tyler Kern, bassist Jacob Massey, and drummer Austin Laskowski — a while some names and faces have changed over the years, their songwriting, vocals and mixes are consistently solid, engaging and ready to give more.
"Not Coming Down" shares the emotional scene at the 'Grace' restaurant. This is Nathan telling his side of the story. This song screams out the pain and fear he's had locked inside, and the struggles of his messed up reality.
Jenny Gillespie was born in Springfield, IL and grew up in a rural setting outside of town, surrounded by woods and water. There was a lot of time spent making fairy houses with twigs and moss -- and a lot of harmonizing in the backseat with her sister, a gifted pianist. First picking up her artist mother’s Martin guitar at 13, she found she could put her little poems to music. Her song- writing started to bloom and ever since the garden hasn’t stopped flowering. Jenny has recorded five albums: Light Year (2008), Kindred (2010,) Belita (2012), Chamma (2013), and Cure for Dreaming (2015). Chamma was named one of the best albums of 2013 by Billboard. She has lived in Virginia, Paris, Austin, TX and now lives in Berkeley, CA and Big Sur, CA with her two sons Sebastian and Oscar, her two cats Pippi and Shirley, and her husband.
The moment I heard "Vanishing Point", I knew it belonged to Jenny. This is what it sounds like in her head. And it's the melody that is playing in the scene as she drives with her friends, meditating to the lights dancing in her vision.
