In A Rushing Stream

by Jayme Kelly Curtis

"Speaking of her voice, some might compare Curtis' to pop star Jewel with all its sultriness and lightly peppered gusto. In reality, it's the other way around - Curtis is much more woman than Jewel." David Espinoza, Metro Santa Cruz, April 19-26, 2000

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Fantastic songs, good musicians, and most of all, a brilliant voice."
Dirk Stursberg, Radio 98.6, Berlin, Germany

"I received your album this morning and just finished listening to it all in one shot. You did a great job on the album (as opposed to a few songs and filler.) It comes across as very successfully done as a whole. I'll air this next Saturday night on my station and probably play cuts 1-4 the first week. I want the listeners to hear the ideas and feelings as you planned them on the album. It feels good. Let me know when your next one is released."
Jack "Sandman" Garrison, WFIT FM, Melbourne, FLA

IN A RUSHING STREAM - DJ'S GUIDE
1) Documentary (2:32) Earnest pop vocals backed with guitar and lush piano; the past is viewed with neither love nor hate, it simply is

2) Alchemy (4:33) A mystical road song about personal growth and transformation with soul-searing "flamenco" guitar

3) Lifeline (3:06) Sassy, bad-girl ragtime touching on issues of security and sexual politics, with a strong downbeat and honky tonk piano

4) Big City Blues (2:55) Mournful, sparse, lonesome blues ballad

5) Lanternland (3:33) Salsa-inspired story/folk. In his 16th century satire, Francois Rabelais speaks of the Island of Lanterns, where literary charlatans waste time displaying their wonderful learning and pretending true knowledge

6) Sideshow (3:05) The excesses of youth are celebrated in this folk rock, tongue-in-cheek story song featuring folk accordion and circus percussion

7) Searchlight (3:07) Critical people come under fire in this up tempo pop song with multi-textured "Wall of Sound" harmonies and searing violin

8) Locked Out (3:13) A rock anthem for anyone who has ever been or felt disenfranchised by the status quo. A mover with smoking electric guitar by rock veteran Dave Meniketti of legendary 80's band Y&T

9) Magic Colorado (5:06) Nostalgic, lyrical country/folk song about a youthful relationship left behind; featuring Celtic harp

10) Years May Go By (5:07) We find peace only when we recognize our place in the continuum. An exultation of open chords and lush piano

11) The Shape of Your Heart (4:11) Affirmation of a happy love relationship; unusual, ornamental bass line

12) Circle of Joy (4:13) Positive affirmations framed by soul-informed country gospel and joyful, soaring harmonies

Bruce Willey, Good Times, Santa Cruz

A unique brand of ethereal blues
"…Jayme Kelly Curtis has her own unique brand of ethereal blues down pat. Singing heady songs about personal transformation and reflexive ponderings, Curtis may reach for the stars but she is firmly grounded by her straight-shooting acoustic guitar style and willingness to play the blues on her own terms.

Midnight Rider, bumpNgrind Radio

A subtle blending of folk and blues
"In A Rushing Stream" is a wonderful collection of folk/blues songs, lyrically beautiful and spiritually uplifting. Jayme Kelly Curtis has a voice to soothe and fully occupy the mind, while speaking to the heart. She is an extraordinary talent; a gifted songwriter, a masterful acoustic guitarist, and an enchanting vocalist. Her music is a journey for the mind and soul, provoking familiar and distant emotions with every melody and every lyric."

Ben Ohmart, The Music Dish Review

Definitely worth a listen
"Jayme's voice is clearer than a Broadway singer's on Friday night. Her full woman vocals, often overdubbing themselves on the chorus, are like a combo between Helen Reddy and Jewel, but unlike either of them…. Definitely worth a listen."

Mark Cook, KKUP 91.5 FM

Sultry voice, captivating storytelling
What strikes me about Jayme's music is her voice quality...it is a treasure that she should continue to use for our (the listeners) enjoyment...The voice is sultry and clear, the storytelling is captivating. Alchemy and Magic Colorado in particular are excellent. The album is well engineered and doesn't intrude on this special voice. Way to go girl...good album!

Andrea Perkins, Metro Santa Cruz, December 27, 2000

Jayme Kelly Curtis breaks the mold.
"Singer/songwriter/guitarist Jayme Kelly Curtis breaks the mold. Her crisp, clear voice refreshes the bluesy folk traditions she draws upon, sliding from a purr to a growl like nobody’s business. A storyteller extraordinaire, she alchemizes her personal experiences into modern archetypal myths with bold, poetic lyrics that go straight for the heart. Likewise, her musical flair is deeply nuanced. Sometimes ethereal, even New Agey, at other times lowdown and nitty gritty, each song enters new terrain or infuses old ground with new blood."
