Jasmine Cain has been a proud supporter of our site since 2005 when we first interviewed her after her debut release, “The Inside”, which came out in 2004. It was voted rock album of the year and also featured best rock song ("Help Me") by Just Plain Folks, which is a community of over 51,500 Songwriters, Recording Artists and Music Industry Professionals. Not too shabby!

 

Back in 2008 Jasmine stepped forward and released her sophomore effort “Locks & Keys” and today in 2011 her new CD “Highway Prophet” is on the market. First off, don’t let the sultry look of the CD booklet photos fool ya. This is a in your face rock record with massive guitar work by Jeffery Caughron.

 

The opening track “Run Away” has a bit of a punk rock sound with some uplifting guitar solos. Jasmine reminds me of a heavy duty Alanis Morissette.

 

1995” has the big punch that drives the eighties sound home. It’s a fast-paced enjoyable song that should have some good crowd participation in a live setting.  This one could bring the house down it’s a good song to start off a live show or even end a show with.

 

I’m not one for cover tunes but Jasmine blows me away with her version of Stevie Nicks’ “Edge Of Seventeen”. You gotta check this one out; not only does Jasmine rock on this one but David Michael Thomas (piano) and drummer Keith Brogdon are a stronghold that makes the song jump.

 

Another track that explodes is “Beautiful Tragedy” it’s a great power ballad that really caresses your soul and if this song was released on a major label and got the exposure, it would have no problem climbing the charts. It has all the makings of a classic ballad that brings your senses to ecstasy. Phenomenal!

 

Highway Prophet” is an excellent release that has it all, hard rock, ballads, and even some blues (as on “Don't You Come Around Here” which kind of has that same feel as the theme song for True Blood. Pick this one and add it to your collection.
