"Excellent, excellent CDs man! I've been listening to them constantly and telling people about them. You do some damn fine work." -John O'Keefe
"Toward An Attitude" explores our relationships with ourselves, each other and our mysterious universe.
What Passes for Sex - I lie awake at work I work asleep in bed, sometimes between the two I let the shadow box command my head.
She Was Never Wrong - even when she lied about you. Tried to reach her I am not there six feet away not in her day.
Touch - We only touch our lives but for a moment and I believe we're doing fine.
Waiting for an Echo - I will find a way to find you, I will find a way.
4.5 Billion Trips Around the Sun - (instrumental).
I Have A Need - Beside the greed for the freedom that drives me, up like a weed in the field that survives me.
One - Somewhere in the depths of your eyes you reflect the light of a million skies, you're the mirror where the universe checks its disguise and you laugh again.
Talking To Vegetables - (instrumental).
Toward An Attitude (title track) - we can break free!
Double Helix - secret code trillion sex tricks mother lode.
On Toward An Attitude Jamie sings and plays all parts: violin, acoustic and electric guitars, piano, organ, drums, bass, synthesizers and MIDI wind instruments. Special guest Jennifer Thomas adds amazing background vocals on "Open Eyes."
What people are saying:
"The new CD has not been out of my CD player since Saturday Night."
"'Waiting for an Echo' has been echoing through my head all evening."
"I immediately loved 'She Was Never Wrong.'"
"Probably my favorite part is the pairing of 'She Was Never Wrong' with 'Touch' - both have cool introductions and the contrast between them works so nicely."
"It's hard to pick a favorite song, but I will go with "Open Eyes."
"Jen's harmony vocals bring an excellent element to your vocal mixes."
"We both like your CD a lot, and it didn't make it out of my wife's car CD player for 3 weeks after I first got it."
"I've been listening to your CD and it's very good! You have tasty songwriting and fine playing. Your violin playing adds a uniqueness as well. Nice Job!"
"Your CD has lived in my car for over a week now (that's where I have time to listen to things) and I still like "Toward An Attitude" and "Double Helix" a lot. "I Have a Need" and "One" have really grown on me, too. It's all pretty darn good, though. There isn't anything on there that makes me scream and hit the "next" button. :) (This is good, trust me, I'm picky)"
"I just gave 'Toward an Attitude' another spin earlier today and would definitely recommend it. I'm not quite sure why, but the album it reminds of in terms of songwriting and production and instrumentation is 'The Grand Scheme of Things' by Steve Howe, although I think Jamie's a bit stronger in the words department."
"My favorite tracks: 'What Passes for Sex' -- reminiscent of Dire Straits' 'Industrial Disease' for the sheer volume of words per minute of music, and '4.5 Billion Trips Around the Sun' with six words total."
"I love it, my wife loves it and my daughter loves it!!!"
"The violin is a great touch, I really like that."
