Groovy is the opposite of square. Groovy is originally an expression from Jazz, indicating something that has beat and soul. Groovy is also how I would describe Stephanie Jeannot's record 'We are people united'.
The lyrics explore so many different themes, from love (I think about you all the time I can't go one day one night where you don't come alive inside...) to social issues such as domestic violence (Don't you get tired of the scars that he leaves on your skin that he calls love..). The title track itself deals with issues of prejudice and inequality encouraging the people of the world to unite and live in peace and harmony. Musically speaking, the record presents a well-blended mix of styles including Jazz, R&B, Soul and at times Hip-Hop. Jeannot's voice is mellow and smoothly glides across the registers. The production of the album is excellent, Jeannot is a producer herself curating the direction and production of the radio show Jazz on the JNote which airs each and every Sunday on the theenglishconnectionmedia.com.
Stephanie Jeannot started her musical journey at church, and since then, advanced into sharing her gift, singing across stages. Also a writer, Jeannot received her BA in English/Professional writing from Medgar Evers College and graduated Magna Cum Laude. That certainly explains the cleverly written lyrics.
It's now time for you to get into the groove and listen to the album!
