Jayme Kelly Curtis - In a Rushing Stream
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.
