At least her coversongs sound really nice! That was very pleasant info to know. 8)

This sounds totally insane, but I had a premonition as far back as a couple months ago that Jenn was "the one". :) And, my ESP proved right again! =P

She is a very talented lady with a wonderful classical voice. I've listened and downloaded her recordings she linked at Nightwish.com board during the past 7-8 months since she auditioned for the Nightwish vocalist job last year. Keeping an eye on Timo's and her myspace accounts for the last few moths has given some hints about what's been going on.

This Saana-opera is shaping up to be a great CD! Maybe we can see it live some day, wouldn't that be something!!!

Thats one reason why I got the gut feeling it was her! :)

It would be something if she got the Nightwish job, too! :)

Wow, where on earth did you find THAT pic? :)I don't think that one is even on my modeling website!

Hi guys, it's Jenn. Thanks for all the nice words above! I am new to this forum. :)

I can't believe you found jennifersowle.com, haha. That just went up a few DAYS ago and there is basically nothing on it. ;) I have been using www.myspace.com/jennopera as my website right now until I can update the other.

Thanks so much for all the support- I am thrilled to be a part of this project- it is something I really believe in. :)

Hi Jenn!!

It's nice to see the lead singer of one my next cds in my favorite band's forum. XD

If you are thrilled, just imagine how a fan of years ago IS!

Nice "meeting" you!

Hope you come here and give us details of your work as often as you can.

And welcome to the forum.

Face it, Jenn ;) you are already very popular on the search engines!
:)
Oh, sorry :oops: Welcome to the forum----this interaction will be beneficial to you&the fans so they can get to know you as a person! :) It is fun here---not as personal or serious as TTs place, but Stratoforum is not the bugaboo as its rumored to be! :D

Welcome to the Forum! I hope you'll enjoy your stay and I hope that we will enjoy your performance on the album (and some concerts probably?).

Oh, I think I have learned already. ;)Updated my website a little bit since it was found, haha. Few things don't seem to work yet but I am working on it- I was not blessed with computer skills. :)

Thanks guys!!

Interesting update from TT MySpace:
"...The last round of casting for the characters of Saana is on its way. It means I have to do some travelling in the next weeks to come. Still writing the story too. All I can say that what I am doing has never been done before in music and in lyrics. I could easily write 20 Stratovarius styled songs and invite some known guests and call that "rock opera". But I don´t wanna do anything like that. Saana will be something totally different, both musically and lyrically. I call this a Classic Rock Opera and you will know why. To me this is like a film turned to music. And maybe one day, someone makes a film about this. The story would fit....perfectly.
I was in touch with ex Strato, current Mess bass player Jari Kainulainen and asked him to play the bass on this one and he said sure. I am happy because he is one of the best bassplayers in the world."

I wonder if T.Kotipelto or T.Kakko will be in. Atleast Kakko would propably fit in.

I really hope Kotipelto won´t be in the cast. Because then it would be too Strato alike for sure.

Hey Jenny, congratulations for being the Saana character, I'm really glad for you! You are a really good singer!
and Welcome to this forum!

Concerning the news that Jari will play on the project, I was kinda surprised by that, but I think it's a great thing. Jari is an amazing bass player... far underrated! Btw, Mess is a really good band, with uncredibly talented musicians (Jari, but also Elias Viljanen and Tuple Salmela), I'm quite surprised that they still hadn't signed any record deal...

Surely not ??? There are many great male metal opera singers to leave them totally out of the cast, but TT knows whats best, I guess. :)

Hi Jenn, congrats on your work with the Tolkki album! Image

Psst...you don't have to say or not, but if you got the Nightwish job, you may want to click on my website link below to see what kind of fans await you in North America!

(OK, thus ending shameless self-promotion.)

I can't access MySpace pages for some reason, is there any info on when the album will be released?

Sounds good; the fall is shaping up to be a great time for me, musically!

Strato has been really good about giving me good birthday presents over the last few years. :lol:
