Rockbrat Introduces You To Carly Jamison
Singer-songwriter Carly Jamison, who has just released her new single “Sneaking Around This Small Town,” has been featured on music blog, The Rockbrat Blog. Throughout the feature, The Rockbrat praises Jamison’s talent, originality, and songwriting abilities. “Unlike many other young up and coming artist, Jamison has the talent and ability to craft melodic pop songs draped in originality,” says The Rockbrat.

She first came to my attention via Dan Baird, who played guitar on Jamison’s 2010 album, ‘Everything Happens For A Reason’. Being a huge Dan Baird fan, anything that Dan lends his name to (including the great Stacie Collins) has to be good. Tracks such as ‘Look Where Its Coming From’ have elements of pure pop, classic early 70’s UK glam, handclaps and melody galore. A second album followed in 2013, called ‘Ungrounded’ and it also gets the Rockbrat thumbs up. Since October last year, there have been three new singles releases by Jamison and all are killer slices of pure hard edged pop. ‘100 Goals’ is a classic slice of hard rockin’ pop and is beyond radio friendly. Killer tune. It features the cream of Nashville’s finest including the way underrated Chris Tench and Mike Webb (whom I saw in Sydney a couple of years back as part of Bobby Keyes’ band).
In April this year she dropped another superbly crafted pop tuned called ‘Dynamo’. Pure, unadulterated pop that has me struggling to find superlatives to do it justice. Why aint they paying this on the radio everywhere? The press blurb accurately describes a combination of 80’s inspired guitar riffs, pop melodies, punk rock energy, and poetic lyrics. And then late last month, Carly released another new single called ‘Sneaking Around This Small Town’. Its again heavy on the melody, a little more reflective, but in no uncertain terms showcases the depth of quality song writing that Jamison has in spades. This cat is a way underrated song writer who knows how important melody, chorus and hook are to a song. I’ve been listening to rock n roll for a hell of a long time, since the late 70s in fact, and I’m here to tell you, Carly Jamison has the goods to take her to the top of the heap. She just needs a couple of breaks to go her way. If she keeps putting out quality new singles that surpass each other, it’s only a matter of time before one of the major labels take the bait and give her a shot to see how far she can go. I’m already hip to Carly Jamison, the best kept secret in rock n roll. Get on board!
