ALBANY, Ga. -- Like the building blocks of a career, Albany singer/songwriter Jodi Mann keeps adding to her repertoire ... one song at a time.

Mann will introduce her three newest tunes to the public with a CD release party at the LeVee Saturday night. For a $10 entry fee, partygoers will receive a copy of Mann's newest release, which includes three previously recorded tracks and the new songs "Beach in My Backyard," the ballad "I Know Who I Am" and "Everything's Changed."

The new disc also includes previously released Mann tracks "When You Love Somebody," "Stay With Me" and "Bargain With the Devil."

Mann said Wednesday as she grabbed a quick break from cutting hair at her popular beauty salon, Backstage, that she's looking forward to performing for her friends and supporters.

"We had such a good time at the last show (a similar party at the LeVee in April), we couldn't wait to do it again," she said. "I'm really proud of the new songs, and I'm looking forward to playing them for everyone."

Saturday's show, which also features local artist Brandon Fox, kicks off at 7 p.m. The LeVee, located at 2516 Dawson Road in the Largo Plaza, will set up a full bar for the event.

Fans looking for a show preview can download Mann's songs from her website jodimann.com, from her Facebook page or from the reverbnation.com\\jodimann website.

"Anyone who'd like to can stream the songs on Reverb Nation and vote for my songs among the tops in the region," Mann said.
