Jaymes Reunion
Jaymes Reunion EP



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 6 tracks: 23 minutes, 6 seconds
Street Date: September 22, 2009


Just over a year ago, I found myself fortunate enough to land at a show of the then virtually unknown band Jaymes Reunion. With smart lyrics, catchy melodies, and a tight live performance, it was hard to forget this band. When their single "Fine" hit airwaves, it was clear these guys were poised for success.

Hailing from Bakersfield, California, this four-piece rock ensemble was founded by front man Cameron Jaymes who began pursuing his musical career while he was still in his teens. Soon after, Jaymes was joined by band mates Braydon Nelson, Eric Watson, Jeremy Taylor, and Jared Byeres to form the complete family of musicians before signing to Tooth & Nail Records.

Cameron Jaymes has noted the heavy influence of Paul McCartney on his music as well as U2, Coldplay, The Bee Gees, and Switchfoot. While it's not hard to notice the influences, the music of Jaymes Reunion is far from a rip-off. "Fine," the lead single from Jaymes Reunion, was easily one of the most infectious, well-written songs on Christian radio in 2008. "I Want You Back" is an upbeat plea for a second-chance at a romantic relationship gone awry. Two new acoustic tracks-the sensitive piano-laden "If You Wanna Cry" and encouraging guitar-driven "More Than a Day"-are an added delight as well as the acoustic arrangement of "Fine."

Jaymes Reunion is a most excellent debut for this California band, even if it does run slightly short with only six songs. However, Cameron Jaymes and crew make it count. Get readyÖ this band isn't going to be leaving anytime soon!
