NORTHRIDGE, California – Taking advantage of the innovative design of HARMAN’s JBL EON210P portable PA system, singer/songwriter Jessica Sokolove relies on its portability and audio quality to share her unique musical vision.
Sokolove, best known for performing throughout LA’s indie club and coffeehouse circuit, hosting a popular web series on the Stickam Network, and opening for the likes of Kathryn McPhee and Sheryl Crow, has fallen in love with JBL’s EON210P. “Everyone knows that JBL EONs are great sounding speakers, but the design of the 210P has completely mobilized my music career,” says Sokolove, who takes the EON210P system with her wherever she performs. Since the system is so light and small Jessica can load it and out of the trunk of her small Mini Cooper.
“Brilliant design with stellar sound,” said Sokolove. “The EON210P affords me incredibly quick setups and breakdowns and grants me total control of my mix through the cool powered mixer which snaps on to the back of the speaker. And, on the back of the other speaker, is a snap-off storage unit for my mic and cables. The best part is that I can power the EON210P with an AC adapter through the cigarette lighter in my car and play on the top of a mountain…and I do!”
While Sokolove admits she used to shy away from mixing boards, the EON210P’s built-in mixer is so easy to operate that it allows her the autonomy to perform virtually anywhere. On simplicity, she stated, “I’m not a sound guy but I do need to sound great when I hop from venue to venue. This system sounds great anywhere – even when I’m at home playing my iPod through it!”
Whether in a nightclub or an open-air venue, Sokolove has found the perfect audio system and travel partner in the EON210P. “All I have to do is show up with the twins [Sokolove lovingly refers to the EON210P’s as “The Twins”], plug in and sound great,” she said.
Sokolove, a Maryland native, migrated west to pursue her music dreams. Now a Los Angeles resident, she is currently finishing her debut album soon to be released. In the studio, with legendary drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, alongside famed producer Lee Curreri, Jessica pours out diverse melodies combining indie rock with hints of jazz in an eclectic collection that has been many years in the making. The first single “Nothing Can Go Wrong,” a free download available on her website, is featured on the JBL Pro promo video for the EON210P Portable Audio System starring Sokolove performing on camera. Jessica is widely recognized by the Stickam Network’s eight million subscribers as an artist, a live music host, and the moderator for La Toya Jackson’s “Live and Uncensored” webcasts. Sokolove has sung for Koffeehouse Music events starring Katherine McPhee and Tyler Hilton and recently opened for Sheryl Crow at William Shatner’s Charity Horse Show Benefit.
