"I bet they're gonna love your sound internationally!" is was what super-producer Derek "DOA" Allen said and he just may be right. Growing up a musician exposed to So-Cal Top 40, jazz, 70’s funk, and gospel explains Jasmien’s novel style. She claims all of her background from Joni Mitchell to Marvin Gaye, which was obvious to platinum producer/songwriter Joe Archie. After watching her sing just once Archie commented on Jasmien’s musical awareness, “Yeah, she gets it. That’s rare in today’s artists. Working with Jasmien is gonna be easy!” All Due Season songs were written by Jasmien and Archie (Virtue, The Tommies, Dwele). The songwriting duo refuses to apologize for exploring diverse genres and challenging topics on the project. Jasmien joked with Archie at the project start, “I’m many types of music; it’s all jumbled up so we’ll have to take it all. And if we don’t tell it like the Word says it, then let’s make an instrumental record!” The CD features Archie on all instruments with some guests including renowned sax man Eddie M (Prince, Yolanda Adams) on a bonus smooth jazz version of “Keep On Movin.” Jasmien and Archie unveiled the CD to the entertainment press and a capacity crowd at the upscale Pagoda in Sacramento, CA on December 11, 2010. Joined by a 9-piece band including legendary trumpeter Cynthia Robinson (Sly & The Family Stone). Jasmien’s music has been featured on all major gospel stations in the Greater Sacramento Area. She also has appeared on the Lady Charmaine internet radio show. Extensively profiled on Tommie Goss’ gospel programs on both Rejoice 1240 and V101.1 KHYL, Jasmien has been featured as an independent artist worth watching. Goss commented on the CD by saying, “I love the project. Great job. It is one of the most versatile projects I’ve seen in a while.”
