So exciting to hear a young local musician producing something that’s properly fresh and original. Just listen to the superb, shimmering funk of this virtuoso solo project by Dunfermline’s own Jamie Cooling. Shades of Lewis Taylor combine with Jamie’s own heartfelt idiosyncrasies to create a perfect summer vibe. Classically trained Jamie is off travelling the world with his guitar at the moment, but this is what he has to say about the album:
‘…this nearly drove me insane many times. The whole project was done only by me including the writing, the recording of every instrument, (no MIDI tracks up in this place) the editing, mixing and mastering of every track – if I knew how much work I’d eventually put in I’d never have been able to bring myself to start! Now that it’s finished the only thing left to do is start writing more and begin the whole process again…’
Here’s title track ‘Blessing’, just one of six equally good tracks on the album which you can listen to and buy here.
