Jamie Marshall – a new shining light in acoustic music releases his latest album ‘Here After’ – an album mixed by the legendary John Wood. The opening track ‘She is in me’ straight away sets the pace and feel of the album which left me with a high expectations. I was not disappointed – Jamie’s voice resonates an earth-like quality and The Judas Tree is the perfect example of this with its beautiful introspective sentiments. Vagabond Heart takes you on a virtual tour of Robbie Robertson New Orleans, a song that truly deserves to take pride of place on one of those drive time compilation albums. Jamie has been compared to John Martyn, Mark Cohn, Chris Rea and Van Morrison but for me these comparisons are more like sound bites or snippets of a particular mood or style. This however is part of the appeal, the fact that Marshall’s catchy guitar styles and wonderful vocal richness instantaneously draws you in and leaves you wanting more. A true credit to his originality as a songwriter and talent as a musician.
