Carly Jamison

Song Of The Day On Musical Nourishment

Hills Of Jericho Review

“The Hills Of Jericho” from my first album “Everything Happens For A Reason” was recently featured as the song of the day on Musical Nourishment.

Here’s what they had to say:
“I initially thought I’d be using a different song from Carly Jamison as my song of the day. I was pretty much certain from the moment I first heard the other song. Yet, I was at work and in my head I was reciting “The Hills of Jericho.”

Whatever the song, though, it’s pretty much certain that Jamison’s voice is always going to be enthralling. There’s a wonderful tone to it which just draws you in. It’s also very soothing without being dull.

The song itself can be considered catchy, there’s a nice use of guitar throughout that adds a sort of folk/country feeling despite it not being acoustic. The chorus is particularly addictive and if you ever find yourself singing it in your head it will be the chorus that gets you.

The control over her voice is pretty good too, at moments it’s almost like a whisper but still manages to convey the same strength that she has for the majority of the track. The rich texture to the vocals is definitely one of the highlights.

It’s also quite a deceptive track, on the outset it sounds fast-paced, which it is instrumentally. However lyrically and vocally things are slower, which makes the song almost reassuring. It goes at a comfortable pace.

This track is from the 2010 album Everything Happens for a Reason but Jamison does have a new album out called Ungrounded which I certainly look forward to listening to. Let me know what you think.”

Ungrounded Album Review On Ear To The Ground

Ear To The Ground Music Blog

EarToTheGround Music is a blog that began as a dream amongst a small group of friends who wanted to share their music discoveries with each another. What better way to do that than via an open sharing forum like a website or blog where you can not only share with your friends but the entire world as well? They have since grown into a full website with reviews, interviews, and plenty of exciting music from new and emerging artists.

They just posted a review of Ungrounded which you can read in its entirety here – http://www.eartothegroundmusic.co/2014/02/03/carly-jamison-ungrounded/

A bit of what they had to say:
“Recorded in Nashville, Ungrounded has the presence of a Bonnie Raitt or Janis Joplin, with the complex sound of Bruce Springsteen, and the hard edge of Alanis Morisette. The whole shebang is quite a powerhouse of an album, a great accompaniment to a workout or driving fast with the windows down. This is Jamison’s second album, and one to go listen to immediately. Really, if your Monday is going anything like mine, go crank up this set right now. It might not make Monday any shorter, but it will at least give you enough energy to make through til Tuesday.”

Ungrounded Album Review On BILLCS Music Blog

It started with a really cool email:

And then just a few days ago Ungrounded was reviewed on the BILLCS Music Blog. The BILLCS Music Blog began in 2009 as the BILLCS Is Tuned-On! blog, and is the online home of the BILLCS Chart, Bill Smith’s personal chart (formerly the Tuned-On! Top 30), starting in 1998. The blog contains the personal chart, but you’ll also read his views on all things music and entertainment from the past and the present. The blog has been mentioned in Entertainment Weekly’s Popwatch column.

Ungrounded Review

Here’s what he had to say:
“Ungrounded is a well-rounded rock album from relatively new New York-area singer Carly Jamison. Carly has the versatility to sing with the best of them, drawing from classic rock and traditional country influences, and coming off a lot of the times as Chrissie Hynde-meets-Amy Winehouse via The Smithereens. I love records that showcase real instruments, and Ungrounded is one of them, including piano and horns, as well as guitar work from Dan Baird of Georgia Satellites fame (I saw the Satellites back in 1988!). The most memorable songs on the album are “Superman Fantasy” (animated video above), “No Easy Way Out” and the Memphis country sound of “I Don’t Think We Have Ever Met”. Other songs like “Runaway Train” and “Small Talk” have retro flavour that wouldn’t be out of place on a Chris Isaak album. There’s even the acoustic “I Said I Loved You But I Lied” (NOT the Michael Bolton song), which evokes a smoky French jazz club feel. All in all, Ungrounded is a diverse rock album that showcases Carly Jamison’s many talents, and the songs should play out just fine in concert.”

I recently did a five question interview with him which he just posted on his site. He asked me:

When did you get interested in a music career?

Many of today’s artists have decided to take the Reality TV approach and audition/compete on shows including “American Idol,” “The Voice” and “The X Factor.” Why did you decide to not go this route in your career?

Can you please describe your songwriting/arrangement style to my readers? How does it stand out in the crowded music market?

How long did it take to record your second studio album: “Ungrounded”? What were the challenges that you faced with the recording process and how did you overcome them?

What are some of your goals for 2014?

Imagine my surprise when I woke up to it being featured on LargeHearted Boy’s website! He got the scoop on that one!
