The follow-up to Jamison’s debut Everything Happens for a Reason, this release adds an advanced and edgier production gloss to her already established ‘60s rock and country influences. Jamison has a distinctive voice that emotes in hushed tones and subtle nuances; imagine the delivery of Chrissie Hynde and Patti Smith coupled with the pop sensibility of Sheryl Crow. This is real rock for fans who cut their teeth on Bonnie Raitt, the Stones and CCR. The addition of horns on “Small Talk” and ringing guitars and harmonica on “Runaway Train” inject soulful spice into the mix as well.
