The Story of Precious Time. 

Time. As a child I knew it was precious. As a young adult it stretched out before me full of endless possibilities. Now I’m older there are ever-present reminders of its passing and a desire to make the most of whatever time I have left on this planet. This song is for anyone who feels there is ‘less of it to waste and more to find’.  

‘Precious Time’ began many years ago after a conversation with a friend who had just had a health scare. We talked about old times. “Those were the days” I said. He said, “No, these are the days and I don’t want them to end.” It stuck in my mind. I put some ideas down (onto whatever I recorded ideas onto back then) but mostly it just stuck in my head with a melody and a chorus. Fast forward to last year and I started singing it live. The last time we performed ‘Precious Time’ there was a friend sitting in the audience, and, it turned out to be the last time I ever saw him. Gone too soon, and with little warning, he was someone who always encouraged me to be true to myself and live fully because we never know what’s around the corner. As time passes, songs can become even more poignant.  

When I finally got into the studio and played it with the band the song evolved into something more hopeful than I first imagined it to be. In this changing world so much depends on time, and its become ever more important to use it wisely, remember what matters most and treasure the moments we share. Jx


“I urge you to give this a listen. This is contemporary songwriting and performing at it’s best” Maverick*****

Musically most at home in the world of folk, roots and Americana, Jennifer's classic songwriting - with its vivid storytelling, beautiful imagery and poignant mix of hope and experience - will touch a nerve with many a soul. Her finely-crafted albums have received critical acclaim from BBC Radio 2, Bob Harris, the folk press and beyond. With producer Stuart Bruce (Band Aid, Van Morrison, Madeleine Peyroux) and a stellar new band, Jennifer is currently recording her fifth album due for release in 2021.
