Incredible Voice
Jamie's voice is very recognizable - it has a beautiful quality to it. Her songs have a folk-like sweet sensibility to them and are created with airy type melodies. The CD sound quality is excellent as well.

It's not an overstatement to call this CD a masterpiece!
Jamie sings like a beautiful bird! She is a master songwriter. Her songs are unique and make you think and feel. The instrumentation and production are very tasty, especially her guitar in all sorts of unusual tunings. The CD cover and booklet are a work of art as well, with all the lyrics, photos and her own drawings and paintings. The whole album is a visual and audio delight. It really isn't an overstatement to call "Garden of Days" a masterpiece.

I loved the whole package - music & art - but if you want one track to hook you, listen to "Rain". A lush standout track in which Jamie's stunning voice and guitar work is beautifully supported by a glorious string section - of 2! More of this please!
