Continuing my list of folk/pop tagged artists on Jamendo, we have Jamie Rumley, a Canadian artist. While her album, Renovations, is tagged as folk/pop, it is really more like a pop/rock album. There’s not much folk to be found, but it is still a really nice sounding EP.
Rumley is from Winnipeg, Manitoba, but I can’t tell if that’s really reflected in her lyrics. I don’t think it really matters, because she’s not really singing about any geographic locations. I checked out her website, and it turns out she’s playing a European tour in 2011! That seems to be how a lot of Canadian bands start to gather a following, so I hope it goes well for her. From what I understand, making a stop in Japan might not be a bad idea either.
After all that, I guess my point is that you should listen to Renovations. It’s just under the 20 minute mark, and sounds really good.
Also: I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to record a podcast last night, but the plan is to do it tonight either before the Ottawa Senators game, or between periods. It’ll get done tonight, either way.
