Jaime Wyatt is a new name to me. Primed with a rattling good rhythm section and songs equal in quality her songs are of an autobiographical theme. Some speak of her ordeal in prison, hence, you have a collection of convict love stories, prison songs and honky tonk laments.


Apart from her own songs Wyatt covers Merle Haggard country hit “Misery And Gin” (John Durrill) and has fellow Americana act Sam Outlaw drop by to help on vocals on little rocking country tune “Your Loving Saves Me”. Fate, it seems has played a huge hand in Wyatt's career, who has actually served jail time. She starts off at a rush on the record but it is only (other than “Wishing Well”) when she gets to the 4th track “Wasco” Wyatt finds the kind of form likely to set her aside from the pack. And is becoming harder every day for new acts to do so. Such the amount of promising acts trying to hike them selves up the ladder. “Wasco” has Wyatt speak of graduation day; a prison song it was in part drawn from the life of a cell-mate who though she had never met this guy, but had corresponded through letter was planning to marry him when she got out.


“Stone Motel” has an Outlaw-like feel to it, and with a glorious backbeat Wyatt hits the spot. Likewise can be said for “Wishing Well” as she powers on through, impressively. On the former Wyatt speaks of her arrest and how she was only trying to get her money back, and how after she was convicted of strong-armed robbery and on having served her sentence work of any kind was difficult to obtain. When she did finally obtain a job, at a bicycle shop due to her record as a felon it ruled her out for promotion. On the brighter side she did get to write this dynamic fiddle (Gabe Witcher), pedal steel and banjo driven song. Apart from Witcher she also has Ted Russell Kamp, John Schreffler and long time friend, drummer Freddy Bokkenheuser (Ryan Adams) also lend support on the nicely put together seven-track release.        


As for her rendition of the country classic “Misery And Gin”, she does a mighty fine job, and with her tear-stained emotions (and pedal steel guitar), drawn no doubt from experience (I dare say she has seen the bottom of a few glasses in her time and barrooms too) hers is a stellar rendition. Wyatt’s roller coaster journey through life started in her childhood where she grew up on a tiny island in the North West with horses. Her first job was at a horse breeding farm where she listened to country music of the 1990s and 1980s singer-songwriters. Let's hope it isn't too long before she is over here touring the country.
