Artist Profile: Carly Jamison
Cee-Lo's "F*ck You" might have found a kindred spirit in New York-based country-pop/rock singer Carly Jamison. The singer lays out her feelings for any potential detractors in the frank and hilarious "Ask Me I Give A Sh*t." Fortunately Jamison's deep, smoky voice, backed by bluesy guitars and smooth harmonies, has plenty of attitude to back up such a bold statement.
"If you wanna start with me/Bring it on" she snarls on the tough-talking continues on "Bring It On," while "Doubt" finds Jamison kicking herself for falling for a two-timing loser who only gave broken promises and disappointments. She kicks the bum out of course. The singer shows her softer side on "The One With You" a tale of young love lost set to a country-pop soundtrack. "The Hills Of Jericho" varies the subject matter a bit, with lyrics about breaking free of old traditions and the mind-numbing influence of advertising and television. Listen to a few tracks below:
