The internet's been buzzing over the past few weeks as acclaimed singer/songwriter Jennifer Knapp updated her previously stagnant website and launched a MySpace page, signaling a possible comeback. Knapp herself confirmed the rumors on Friday when she posted a notice to her site indeed she was coming back. Christianity Today blogged the news on Friday.
"After a well needed hiatus, Jennifer has started writing/recording again and playing select shows," her manager, Dave Hopper, told CT. On her website, Knapp wrote, "Yes, it's true. I am the REAL Jennifer Knapp and I've been doing a little music lately. We've been flooded with e-mails and phone calls simply by putting up a humble little homepage. So much for my little holiday. It's looking very much like it may be over."
Knapp goes on to explain feeling burnt out after non-stop recording and touring, thus needing to completely unplug from both mediums. But after taking the last five years to recharge her batteries, she's ready to return to the scene that instantly embraced her ingenuity. "Without writing a novel at this point, I'll just say that I'm starting to think that I might actually be a songwriter, musician, or artist of some kind," she continued. "So, maybe I should do something about it?"

Before she married Jeremy Camp, Adrienne Liesching was the frontwoman of The Benjamin Gate. But after tying the knot and shortening her name to just Adie, she went solo and scored a deal with BEC Recordings three years ago. She's now back in the studio, recording a sophomore CD with producers Steve Hindalong and Marc Byrd (of City on a Hill fame). Expect a release sometime in early 2010.
