The NIMA nomination highlights a breakout year for Jasmine Cain, who is set to self-release her 5th studio album, White Noise, on Friday July 24. Produced by Lincoln Parish, former guitarist for Cage The Elephant, the 11-track opus is chock full of fist-pumping anthems, irresistible melodies and heartfelt ballads. Modern rocker "Break Even" roars out of the gate as the album’s first single with motley riff-rocker “Coming In Hot” primed to explode at rock radio. Elsewhere, “Nightingale, “Into the Grey" and “Any Given Sunday” deliver scintillating big chorus bravado while album closer “Fall to Rise,” a duet with Ralph Saenz (better known as Michael Starr of Steel Panther), showcases Jasmine’s undeniable ability to effectuate emotional urgency.
In addition to Starr, White Noise features contributions from bassist Kevin Bebout (Full Devil Jacket), drummer Christopher Williams (of Accept), guitarists Jeff LaBar (of Cinderella), Gerry Finn (of Killer Dwarfs), Jeff Caughron (Full Devil Jacket/Every Mother’s Nightmare), Kenny Greenberg (Gretchen Wilson/Kenny Chesney) and Peruvian axemaster Charlie Parra (M.A.S.A.C.R.E./Kobra and the Lotus).
