CD reviews for Jamie O'Neal

Eternal CD review - Eternal
Jamie O'Neal's latest disc, only her third, is a surprise. First and most important is the music itself, which is comprised of country classics except for the closing song. One would not have expected that from a singer considered part of the pop country school. Second, O'Neal is one of those singers who seemingly disappeared for good after early success. She scored two number ones right out of the chute in 2000 with the poppy "There is No Arizona" and "When I Think About Angels. »»»
Brave CD review - Brave
It's been four years since Jamie O'Neal's debut album, "Shiver," brought the native Australian three Grammy nominations and Best New Artist of awards from Billboard and the Academy of Country Music. Newly signed to Capitol, O'Neal kicks off her second album, in overdrive with the single "Tying to Find Atlantis." The fiddle and drum-powered country rocker is a showcase for her breathy, in-your-face vocals. She follows with "Na+ve," a mid-tempo, '80s-style pop tune, "Somebody's Hero," a heartfelt »»»
Shiver
Australian-born and a veteran of the road with her family's band The Murphys, Jamie O'Neal has also done time singing backup for Kylie Minogue and writting songs for Chely Wright, Clay Davidson and Tammy Cochran. Her own voice has taken a while to be heard, but with this debut CD, her sultry, soulful vocals are now front and center. Dolly Parton's '70's era pop-country is a natural reference to O'Neal's music, and she even reveals a bit of a Dolly-esque warble on songs like "Frantic. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
Concert Review: Fogerty lives up to his past – Woodstock 50 may never have happened, but that original monumental event was certainly in the air at John Fogerty's My 50 Year Trip Tour before, during and after. The before and after was in the choice of songs that came over the speakers including everything from Jefferson Airplane's "Don't You Want Somebody to Love" to The... »»»
