Chris Jamison

Cradle to Cradle

On his third effort, Wimberley's Chris Jamison continues to sound like the Paul Simon of Texas. Eclectic rhythms mix with Americana soundscapes, while his clever observations become lyrics that scan as contemporary poetry. With guests Warren Hood and Ephraim Owens, the young singer-songwriter makes intimate music that's never precious: Check out the chamber pop "One Foot in Front of the Other" and the Latin-flavored "Flea Market Traffic." ***
