Album Notes
Musician Jamie Notarthomas has been an integral part of the independent underground music scene since the late 1980's, performing an average of 200 shows a year at all varieties of venues primarily throughout the eastern US. Over the years, his thought-provoking song writing and electrifying performances have established him as one of the most popular and well-known acts in the region.

Now with his latest release, Climbing out of the 20th Century, Jamie claims his spot amongst the most talented song writers and performers working today. With tunes that retain his own recognizable and original style, he displays a song-writing prowess reminiscient of such greats as Bob Dylan, Woodie Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Bruce Cockburn.

Climbing Out of the 20th Century, his third CD, is a pure acoustic folk album and represents the approach that this musician is so well known for. Notarthomas' inspired songs present a fresh, original angle and often unique arrangements that eloquently honor the timeless tradition of pure folk music.

Climbing showcases his ability to exhaust the most difficult of subject matter with clever poetic form. The album is infused with a sense of the spiritual, with themes ranging from socio-political, environmental, and psychological, to the deeply personal. His lighter themes are sometimes humorous or clever musings about the local central NY region where he has lived. All of this is delivered with a wildly versatile voice capable of a three octave range and single guitar and harmonica that people often mistake for a whole band.

Steve Jones

A colorful album full of genuine veracity.
I enjoy listening to each song on this cd especially The Quill and Oneida Lake. The stories are told very well and have a charming quality similar to Dylan's. Very pretty and also very raw. A fine listen for any music lover. Help yourself to some Arachnaphobia Blues!!!

Having grown up in Syracuse, NY most of my life, I can really appreciate Rock Salt City. No one in Maine understands what the lake effect machine can do.

I have enjoyed listening to the entire CD, over and over and over. I especially enjoyed Inside Out and found the lyrics to be right on the money in today's political climate.

I remember seeing Jamie in the early 80s in Syracuse, and he was awesome then. It's nice to know some things really do get better with time!

I'd highly recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys great music and wonderfully written songs.
