January 19, 2015
Chilliwack, BC – Stó:lō artist Inez Jasper is releasing her latest project, “Burn Me Down Acoustic feat. Marty Ballentyne” for free download to fans on her mailing list (sign up at http://www.inezjasper.com)
Download album artwork here.
Inez has performed with Marty Ballentyne for 4 years and the two have played her material acoustically for many venues. When fans started to ask for her material as performed, she could only offer the pop album until now. “The acoustic shows were popular and fans always surprised to find that the album is pop. Why not give the people what they want?”
Now, after a year and a half of touring the pop album, Inez has said a tour will be announced soon for the acoustic project. “My babies are a little older now and I’m finally ready to hit the road. Start the car!” Juggling the demands of family life and music has always been a challenge, she explains, but the timing is perfect since she is back in the studio recording her next project, the other thing fans have been asking for: an R&B album.
