ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I recorded the album I wanted to hear."

That is what David Michael Thomas, multi-instrumentalist mastermind of Jackson Famous, has to say about the debut offering of his pet project. Over the years, David has been a vital part of several notable acts, including the Voodoo Hippies (the original incarnation of Island/Def Jam recording artist FullDevilJacket), Jonathan Singleton and The Grove, and Jasmine Cain. After nearly 20 years of touring, writing, and studio work, Thomas has decided to take the reins and helm his own project.

Recruiting relative unknowns Skylar Sage on drums and Colton Parker on bass guitar, DMT has put together a solid and versatile foundation to build a unique aural tapestry. Parker and Sage lay a powerful groove that never lets up but never gets in the way of the songs. Sage's approach varies to fit the mood of the song, from bare-bones to operatic, and Parker's masterful low end lands like a punch to the gut on track after track.

Jackson Famous's "Unfilmed Movie Soundtrack" is a witch's brew of rock, funk, psychedelic and piano pop with a twist of classical influence and a hint of country. Genre-bending without being schizophrenic, the album offers a complete sonic journey. From the oblique foreshadowing synth of "Main Titles" into the hard-driving rock of "Heaven Waits", one could be tempted to think that this is just another retro riff-rock escapade, but the confident funk of "Lucky 13", the thundering urgency of "Life Ruiner" and the tongue-in-cheek "Good Looking and Drunk" give way to the more soul-searching, emotive expression of "The Flame", "Run" and "I Don't Mind". Lush orchestration and catchy melodies abound, and whether it's a wall of guitars, a full string section or the alt-country twang of "Countdown", Thomas and his band seem right at home. Just when you think the surprises are over, the album closes with the epic sprawl of "I Need You" / "The Girl of my Nightmares". Candid lyrics twist into explicit ones, major melodies become minor, and "stripped-down" morphs into "all guns blazing". By the time it's over and the wall of feedback has died down, you may have to start the whole thing over again just to figure out what the hell happened.

Get famous.

Jackson Famous.

Jackson Famous.....only temporarily.
I recently got a copy of Jackson Famous' new CD. What a journey. First two tracks are exactly what I expected and more. Lush and full of sound, straight ahead rock and roll. May just be my favorite new song. Fist in the air, great chord processions and very listenable. Sounds very familiar and like an old friend. Good Lookin' and Drunk is a live concert staple and is sung with all of the cocksure swagger and arrogance of an alcohol fueled David Lee Roth. Of COURSE you want me! Then, a change in speed. Very orchestral and heavy keys, David Michael Thomas pours lyrics out as only one that has 'been there'. Love lost, love found and unreturned affections that have captured that soul which lies within him, and he's found the words to express. These songs really showcase David's pure talent and show that this band is no flash in the pan. It's a lifelong affair with his art and he presents it very well. Jackson Famous...only temporarily. Well worth a purchase!!!

This is beautiful. It seems David bleeds his lyrics out from experience. I can feel the raw emotion as words/strings/piano all melt together and fill my brain with angst and love and sometimes melancholy. We've all been there. I think that's the overall feeling I get - it reaches a deep place we all have. Besides that though, there's also the popular Good Lookin and Drunk, which is hard and in your face and I'm still singing it to myself, inappropriately, in my office. There's also a little twang in on this CD. I really like this cd. You will too.
