A Pile of Tears is a sad ballad about the emptiness left behind when a relationship ends. Here are some thoughts on Jenny and the song from composer, lyricist, and producer Peter Link:

“Jenny Burton just this past weekend finished a stunning return to the stage in her powerhouse performance at ESU Body Mechanic’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Fundraiser, thrilling the packed house with a nostalgic return to her Disco days and some of her hit songs from the 1980s. As I watched her spin her magic on stage, I could not help but remember that, though this may have been the start of her career, it was certainly not the limit. She has gone on to be a consummate performer and a vocalist who can span many genres of music both as a dynamic ‘rock the house’ type singer and also a woman who can handle brilliantly the ballad.

“Here in Pile Of Tears is a proof positive example of her ability to handle the most sensitive of ballads. It’s a sad tale, but one far too many of us have faced at one time or another in our lives.”

This song is from Jenny’s 3 Song EP Reaching Out From The Inside. These three songs provide listeners with a fascinating view into the heart and soul of Ms. Burton as she weaves her vocal magic. Once again we think you’ll find the essence of Jenny boldly and beautifully demonstrated. Once again, she reaches out to you – from the inside.

"A glorious explosion of sound that embraces everyone in a "Hallelujah" of harmonies ... A roller-coaster ride through R&B, pop and gospel." -Wayman Wong, New York Daily News

"How lucky to come across the beautifully sung Jenny Burton Experience. A superslick, pop-gospely entertainment, the Experience stars the sleek but fiery Burton. The nine-voice choir behind her is so pristine it sounds like it's been remixed and mastered in advance." -Michael Musto, The Village Voice
