Artist: Jayme Kelly Curtis
Title: In a Rushing Stream
Label: PurrGirl Music (www.purrgirl.com)
Genre: Acoustic Pop

Jayme Kelly Curtis (not the star of Halloween) has come up with a 12 track pop cd that reeks of folk and 70s influences. Sometimes she'll come up with a blues venue, as 'Big City Blues' demonstrates with its acoustic guitar accompaniment and tambourine clap, and slow and fretless bass. 'Big city take a chance on me / Now it don't show but I know you can see / I'm gonna make it this time around.'

This singer-songwriter from Boulder Creek, CA has been earning her wings since the age of 14 when she took to the road, forgetting high school and getting some Real education in an artist community where she studied fingerstyle guitar with Rolly Brown (himself a student of Rev. Gary Davis). That's why guitar is so prominent here, and why Jayme's voice is clearer than a Broadway singer's on Friday night.

Her full woman vocals, often overdubbing themselves on the chorus, are like a combo between Helen Reddy and Jewel, but unlike either of them. Listen to 'Lanterland' and really try to Guess the genre. You can hear every word. 'I met a man he took me down to Lanterland / He fed me a lotus blossom / And took me by the hand / I was a long, long time / In Lanternland / In his Lanternland.'

Yes, she's a child of the 60s, delayed by time. One of my favorites on the cd is 'Lifeline' which has a ragtime/vaudeville beat about it, with piano and guitar going against each other and the backbeat, as the close harmony women go 'Talked on the phone to you late last night / You know I felt like a fisherman / I just got a bite / We'll have to take it easy as we're reeling it in / 'Cause I don't want to lose it again / Throw me your lifeline.'

Definitely worth a listen. Can't say exactly who this music is for beyond folk or adult contemporary or vocal jazz, but see what You think.
