The Oxygen Girl by Jeni Hankins
It’s Flashback Friday and today we’re going back about a year ago with the thirteen track album The Oxygen Girl by Jeni Hankins. This is a heartfelt collection of Americana songs Hankins wrote while traveling across the states and Britain. About the album Hankins writes:
I haven’t written many love songs. I’ve had my head turned by other things – fiery union speeches, the sound of a man trying to breathe through forty years of coal dust, the breathtaking swirl of colors in an old quilt brought out of my grandmother’s cedar chest. But last summer, I had my head turned by love – and by loss.
So, I set myself the task of writing a collection of love songs. As I wrote them, I traveled 15,000 miles across the USA, the country I was leaving, and Britain, the home I was seeking. This album is a love letter – a scattering of ashes and the sparks of hope that rise from them.
