Album Notes
Jamie Anderson has played her unique original songs in hundreds of venues in four countries, including forty-seven U.S. states and three Canadian provinces. She’s contemporary folk without the Birkenstocks, pop without the meat dress, bluegrass without the whiney tenor, and jazz without the weird chords. Her eleven recordings include this latest CD.

The Truth Appears was recorded in Chelsea, Quebec, with James Stephens (Ian Tamblyn). An award-winning string player, he also co-produced and engineered the album. Musicians include electric guitarist Fred Guignon (Kathleen Edwards), bassist Ken Kanwisher (Charlie Major), vocalist Chris MacLean, and others on percussion, trumpet, banjo, and more. Accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, tenor ukulele, and mandolin, Jamie offers the pop-folk “Between”–using poignant imagery she explores where truth is found in a relationship. “Home to Me” is a requiem for a lost relationship, one where spring is blooming but the breakup brings the chilly winds of winter. Not everything is deep and intense. “Blah Blah” is a singalong she felt compelled to write because every folksinger needs a singalong or they take away her folksinger card. “Karma Café” also explores a lighter topic, where she wonders what one would find in the Bad Karma Café. As it turns out, it’s roasted crow and sour grapes. A lively fiddle enhances “Man in Black,” a true story; he looked a lot like Cash and he used to drive a tour bus for Hank Williams, Jr. Too bad he was only there to fix the furnace.

Jamie's dad was a country musician -- a painful thing for a teenager who would rather listen to Carole King -- but it did mean there were always guitars lying around the house. In high school she memorized every chord in a Mel Bay songbook, and for the next few years she played weddings and local venues. After the hundredth request for "Wedding Song," she decided to write her own songs. Jamie did her first national tour because she needed to earn gas money to get to a music festival. She's been collecting tiny motel soaps ever since.

Jamie’s also an author. Her memoir, Drive All Night, was published in 2014. In 2019 her second book, An Army of Lovers, will be out.

When Jamie isn’t performing, she teaches music lessons in her home studio. One of her instructional videos on YouTube has gone viral, with over 500,000 views.
