ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After several years as a guitar player in a Kingston-based blues/jazz/funk band, Jamil suddenly found that his band-mates had moved on from university while he had not! Without his music-making amigos, Jamil picked up his acoustic guitar and began to dabble in singing and songwriting. This quickly became his focus and passion.

In the years that followed, right up until the present, Jamil has undertaken his own artist development by writing continuously, taking online courses through Berklee College of Music, and by performing in his hometown of Toronto. You'll often find him playing solo at The Cameron House, Free Times Cafe, NOW Lounge or The Rivoli.

Jamil's songwriting has been recognized repeatedly. He was a finalist in the 2005 International Songwriting Competition for his song "Ocean Tide" (co-written with Ron Lopata), and "My Way Home" (also co-written with Ron) received an honourable mention in the 2005 Billboard Song Contest. Recently, American Songwriter Magazine published his lyrics for "The Sun Will Rise"... and the list goes on.

With influences such as Paul Simon, James Taylor, Coldplay, David Gray and Ray LaMontagne, Jamil's Singer/Songwriter/Rock songs are described by Chris Iorfida (contributor to Chart Magazine and Eye Magazine) as "passionately sung with well crafted lyrics."

"Always on a Tightrope" gets better with each listen. The music is slick, the songwriting intelligent. Favourite track is "My Way Home". Can't wait to see Jamil live sometime.

Sasha

All around excellent!
One of my favourite indie releases in recent times. That jagged but soft voice tells it like it is. And the lyrics pull me from the start of each song.

It's a treat to listen to a performer who really let's you in their heart and mind, Jamil doesn't hold back...you'll enjoy it the first listen...LOVE it on the second go around.

Contagious Melodies!
Jamil's music comes straight from the heart. This is the most sincere pop music I've heard this year. I will listen to this album for the rest of my life. His descriptive detail is nothing short of soul moving. Congrats Jamil!

Warm and invitiing
Warm and inviting. Nice to see an artist stick to the grassroots fundamentals of creating great music and telling stories. A wonderful break from all the oversampled product on the market today.
