ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reid Jamieson
& The Unavoidable Truth

Reid Jamieson is a classic Canadian heartbreaker with an incredible voice and a magical way with melodies. His latest full length disc The Unavoidable Truth, was produced by Josh Finlayson (Gord Downie Band , Skydiggers) and features guest appearances from Sarah Harmer & Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo, Wilco) while showcasing his choirboy ways, therapeutic lyrics and country-flavoured pop hooks. It's 2007 and Reid is hard at work writing for his next album. Reid is a regular on CBC's Vinyl Cafe and recently moved from Toronto to Vancouver BC . Please stay tuned for more from this tender troubadour...

What the heck does he sound like? and well you might ask. Click on any of the many MP3 links for a listen. File alongside fellow rootsy singer-songwriters: Ron Sexsmith, Damien Rice, Jeff Buckley, Glenn Tilbrook and Neil Finn.

Yummy!
So many great songs and the boy can sing! I found it because of the Sarah Harmer duet 'Holding Out', but keep it in my car cd player because the songs make me feel good. Somewhere between Smokey Robinson and Willie Nelson, and never mind the John Mayer. This record is a keeper.

PERFECT-PUPPET-PRODUCTIONS

REAL NIGGAZ,THESE GUYZ GOT THE FLAV TO MAKE YOUR EARS WANT MORE
SOME OLD FLAVOR WIT DA NEW TIMES

Karl

Totally fantastic - something new and honest
Just heard Reid Jamieson and purchased his album. Has to be one of the most honest and clean productions I have heard in years. I'm tired of mainstream artists who seem to write to a formula designed for air time and sales. This album has none of this, the production values are very clean and crisp, each note seems to have a great deal of effort put into it in order to blend. As a consequence, the ability to pick out any instrument including Reid's voice allows one to hear something new each time a song is played.

Best song - I'm starting to learn- conjures up images of haunting pain, stumbling but getting up and carrying on: life in other words.

Eric Murphy

Vintage sounding new music
Few artists manage to sound old fashioned without sound old hat. Reid Jamieson has got some really interesting melodies and progressive lyrics here, but the musicianship is tastefully classic. And my wife loves it if that means anything to the average reader. I quite like it.

Amanda

Beautiful CD - can't keep it out of the player.
His music just get better and better...my favourite is Starting to Learn, but all songs are amazing. Highly recommended.

Brien Comerford

The Evocative Reid Jamieson
The unknown Reid Jamieson surpasses the brilliant Chris Martin of Coldplay as a poignant, melancholic and ultimately sanctifying vocalist. His voice is mesmerizing and his songs are addictive. Reid Jamieson is heavenly, innovative and mesmerizing. If he does not receive Universal Acclaim it is a prooof that humanity should be ashamed !

LINDSAY STRATHMORE

BEAUTIFUL VOICE AND SONGS!
THIS ALBUM BY REID JAMIESON IS A RICH, INTELLIGENT, SENSITIVE AND THOUGHTFUL ALBUM BY A MAN WHO HAS HIS OWN VOICE, AND MY OH MY IS IT A GEORGEOUS ONE! WHEN YOU GET PAST THE ACTUAL BEAUTY OF THE SINGING AND PLAYING, THE SONGS REVEAL THEMSELVES AS ORIGINAL AND THOUGHT PROVOKING. SOMETHING TELLS ME WE'LL BE HEARING ALOT MORE ABOU THIS ARTIST IN THE YEARS TO COME.

Anne Worburton

Yummy indeed!
It's so nice to come across an artist like Reid Jameson. I feel like I have known him forever, his lyrics are so honest. The Unavoidable Truth is very good.

His singing style is something that can be playing at work and no one ever says turn it down. In fact, they say turn it up! Last Day of The Year is a perfect soundtrack for my mind. He has a real sixties feel and sings like Simon and Garfunkel all by himself.
