We Need Soliders
Too Drunk to Drive, the upcoming single from Jameztown presents listeners with five (5) new and stylistically different tracks that reinforces why Jameztown is not only gaining credibility, but also popularity in the music industry. From the first song we start to hear a distinct pattern, correlating the theme to the rest of the single. Jameztown delivers his lyrics with an in your face' attitude. In Too Drunk to Drive, he shares See, I Don't Want to Die High, Don't Want to Grind for Dimes and I be tired in the Morning Time... Driving these lyrics home with a beat that's reminiscent ofan old 70's movie, you get the feeling and sense of power, along with understanding where Jameztown is coming from. Born and raised throughout at least 20 of the cities in the State of Ohio, he is no stranger to trials and tribulations. 'I'd rather not concentrate on all the hard times and run-ins with the law I've had, Artists these days glorify gun talk and tales of dealing drugs to boost their images, when 8 out of 1 0 have had some type of marketing plan written up for them, I speak for myself, no marketing plans, no corporate sponsors, just music.' Jameztown's music takes the listener on a meaningful journey, as his lyrics describe life through his eyes, the other side of life, the way things really are. One song that stands out, as being something different is the last track titled 'We Need Soldiers!' In it you hear Jameztown's lyrics' We were there before the buildings were dropped, before the sniper talk, people shot, Washington rocked... .', he shares a different approach of the 9/11 and current war situations. He gives you the same effect of the gas pedal being pushed to the floor, touching issues from poverty, child abuse and neglecting to father figures and dishonest friendships, with rhythmic piano and saxophone chords, Jameztown makes everything fit so meaningfuly together. Each track achieves something different and each has it's own unique sound and hook. Jamzetown's music definitely stands out as an interesting and very daring listen, as if being told, he's 'Too Drunk to Drive', wasn't daring enough.
