ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sun-washed Santa Barbara, California, north of Los Angeles, is where singer/songwriter Jamie Green currently writes, performs and creates the tableau of her life. Her third CD, Chase the Rain, is a series of signature songs that are alternately funkified, rocking and introspective; multiple creative streams that flow into one striking body of work with production influences reminiscent of Seal, Dido, Alanis Morissette, Sade, Gwen Stefani and Pink.

The opening song, “I Like 2 Be With You,” is a sunny, supportive litany already being requested for weddings. “Make Me Do Right,” is an orchestral, guitar driven track that has the protagonist feeling “all nasty and crazed,” from the stress and anxiety of modern life as she strives to be better to herself and those around her. “Girls’ Night Out,” with a Shaft-era soul guitar riff and Stevie Wonderesque harmonies, conjures up images of lamé, neon, and most of all, sisterhood. “My girlfriends are everything to me,” Jamie notes. “This is my tribute to them.” Less glorified is the romantic partner whom Jamie notes “was just a blip,” but significant enough to be implored on “Show Me How to Love You,” and lambasted on “Step 9,” appropriately subtitled “The Asshole Song.” The rigors of emotional isolation and miscommunication also inform the gorgeous piano-driven “This Wall.”

Jamie includes two covers, the first, “I Miss You,” a haunting lyric and melody by Jamie's friend, L.A. singer/songwriter Ali Handal, and the second, “Message in a Bottle,” a cover of The Police classic that begins acoustically and then slides on a subtle world music undercurrent. The global notions also fuel “Oneness,” a song created at the Oneness Songwriters Summit in Columbus, Ohio with two young writers, Apryl Dillard and the rapper known as ONE.

Three very different types of women are present in “Unencumbered,” “Megan, Lunndie & Sabrina,” and “Silver.” The first is a plucky 14 year-old teenager with a nose ring who sits beside the narrator in a New York subway station. The second is the trio of female soldiers who posed thumbs up in front of “naked hooded men” at Abu Ghraib. “Silver” is a requiem for a woman who left the physical plane far too early as expressed through the tears of grieving friends who ask, “what the hell were you thinking?”

Stepping out of the perceived mainstream, Jamie has shifted priorities in her art and her life. When she left Los Angeles she pitched 30 years of past journals into a fire pit in a cleansing ceremony. A similar catharsis underscores the title track, “Chase the Rain,” as she observes, “We all make crazy choices. Sometime they work and sometimes they don’t and other people don’t understand them. Everyone has to choose his or her own path. I’m drawn to those quirky people who haven’t done it the way it’s supposed to be done. This is for them, and for me.”
