ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fans call it Single Mom Rock! Kami Nixon is a classically trained flute player who picked up a guitar and jumped into rock and roll. She's a former journalist who documents through songs her life as a single mom coming of age.

The music is fun at turns, sexy in places, heartbreaking at the peaks, and always great rock and roll.

Kami, a young woman raised in America's Southwest, is bursting onto the Bay Area music scene, playing with San Francisco legend Bill Spooner, of the Folk-ups and the Tubes fame. Her songs rip with Spooner's solos and drip with wacky touches that long-time fans of his will recognize.

The falsetto at the end of Boys named Jon? That's Spooner's idea and Kami's voice doing several parts. The desperate rap at the end of Gin & Tonic that you can only hear if you listen all the way with the volume up? Again, Spooner's directive and Kami's on-the-spot vamping.

Keep coming back for more info. A deejay in Belgium is hot on Kami's trail and momentum is building. She's booking show dates at the same time she's already back in the studio working on a full length project.

It's getting hotter and hotter!!!

I would like to hear everything Kami has to say.
She gives us five songs here, and I am excited to hear more. More rockers, more ballads. I've seen Kami play live just with her guitar and she was fantastic. Now to hear her music on this cd is incredible too. Gin and Tonic is really rocked out on the cd -- pretty different (in a great way) from her mournful live version. I hear she's recording again. I encourage everyone to buy this ep and to listen to all of her stuff.

Boys named Jon should be in every collection. It's the first recording by an artist who is really going places.

Leonard Cohen influence?
The verse lyrics (Plans) are really strong and challenging -- especially the first verse. I wonder if I'm hearing a Leonard Cohen influence here?

Kami manages to convey a sense of joie de vivre, and exhibits a good sense of song structure. The chorus melody really takes off.

Different but hard to stop listening
It is extremely different from the music that I normally listen to, but definitely kept my attention. I played it for my 8th graders in Phoenix, Arizona and they had similar reactions. I will definitely be rotating it through the selections I play in class. Can't wait for more like it.

Kami,
Congratulations on your career change and your success!! All the best of luck.

Ani de Franco and Alanis Morrisette in a rocker mom !!!
"Plans," (track 4) is so rocking I can't believe it. And the song about the war keeps haunting me. At the same time, Gin and Tonic and "These Jons" keep going over and over in my head because they are catchy and fun. Who is this woman? I want more. And the guitar work is amazing. Oh, and a flute in a rock song? Totally original and smart.
