ON DECK
Jenn Bostic (www.jennbostic.com), a singer/songwriter out of Nashville, is starting to create a buzz with her amazing live performances. Recently, Kristin Chenoweth got to check out one of her shows and went on to tweet this about her: “If u like Sara Bareilles, you will LOVE the artist I heard tonight: Jenn Bostic. She is more like a Sarah Maclaughlin or Sara Bareilles. Unbelievable she is.” Keep an eye locked on Wheels as we continue to monitor this impressive young artist. Also, be sure to check out her track “Jealous of the Angels” produced by Barrett Yeretsian (Christina Perri, Andy Grammer), which is beautifully served by the stunning official video.
