Album Notes

San Diego resident Jon Jump, lead guitarist and chief songwriter for GUNNER JUMP, recently received the honor of being named one of the top 5 Finalists, in the Christian/Gospel category, by the Song of the Year ( http://www.songoftheyear.com/ ) songwriting contest. Song of the Year is an international songwriting contest supporting VH-1’s Save the Music Foundation. The Song of the Year judges are some of the biggest names in music including many Grammy Award winners.

Song of the Year is excited to recognize Jon Jump for his exceptional songwriting ability for the song “Remember Me”. Jon competed against songwriters from all over the world for this honor. When asked what inspired the song, Jon commented that “The song was inspired by Dismus, the good thief, who died with Christ. His last words to Jesus, “Remember Me”.

"California" received the following review on IndieInternational.com:

"California"is such a well written song! I love it. The whole album is wonderful! Can't wait to here more!"

Other reviews from IndieHeaven are as follows:

"Remember Me" is a good one guys, really enjoyed it. Your style is great and fun to listen to, and the songs are well written and performed. Stay committed to Him guys; you're on the way up!!" ~ Blessings, Duane

"Hey Guys! Love your music, very authentic.. very real.. Excellent all the way around! Keep up the excellent faith-work!" ~ Keith Mohr, President, Indieheaven

Reviews of “California” on RedFizz.com stated:

"I like the Come Together/Satisfaction riff best, it nods pretty heavily to those songs, but it's got a countrified vibe that's fresh... the singing and playing is good, I didn't like the chorus/horn part. I like that you had horns, but that part of the song bogged down for me. Overall, strong talents here!"

"I liked it good song. I could see it on the radio!"

"I really like the fun groove. Thanks!"

Reviews of “Remember Me” on RedFizz.com stated:

"God/whatever, but you did a good job on this song. It’s kind of butt-rock, but how edgy is mainstream Christian rock going to be? Nice job dudes, rage on!"

"Nice, well done, nicely played and performed, verging on the edge of contemporary Christian."

"Crisp, good playing, great sound...That line, "I lived my life in disharmony", comes off just a bit awkward. It's a bit distracting. Has a Bon Jovi feel to it, but in a better way, and then transcends that comparison. Liked the way it went off the beaten path towards the end and mixed it up some."

"Sounds like 70's influenced classic rock/power pop infused with a country, blues, funk and R&B tinge and an emphasis on strong songwriting. Pretty clean vocals, crisp playing and recording, radio ready. The song itself is ok, it hints at more famous and more catchy tunes; like it tries to emulate them without ripping them off, but as a result, isn't as catchy. Great talent, just needs a better song."

"Not a bad Jesus song. A testimonial without being preachy or overtly riddled with biblical references. Good job."

Excellent Spiritual Southern Rock CD
Gunner Jump’s "Taking Chances" is a Christian country rock EP brought to you by the powerful duo of Jon Jump and J.G. "Gunner" Franklin. The influence of ‘70s southern rock is a big part of the sound, as well as blues, funk, and R&B, and the emphasis on good songwriting is well apparent throughout. Gunner’s vocals are energetic, and he delivers the inspiring and well thought out lyrics nicely with a great rock feel. The arrangements showcase Gunner Jump’s great variance in what is largely an arena sound. There are some creative changes as well as instruments introduced that are clearly inspired by genres outside of Christian country rock. The production quality is good, so turn up the volume on this one. Highlights include "California," with its gritty lead guitar and great rock lyrics, and the addition of horns in the chorus adds a burst of power. "Remember Me" has a nice acoustic guitar progression, inspiring lyrics, and a great vocal performance. "You're My Girl" opens with an uncharacteristic drum machine and evolves into a beautiful love song. If you enjoy spiritual southern rock that takes a few chances, give Gunner Jump a try.
