Jamie McLean Band CD Release / The Spring Standards / Liz Longley
Jamie McLean’s music is rich with rock and roll, dirty blues, and beautifully crafted original songwriting. Over the past year and a half, McLean's songwriting—filled with catchy hooks, beautiful lyrics, and scorching guitar work—has mingled with the soulful gumbo of the deep South. While the Jamie McLean Band is based in New York City, the influences of southern rock, blues, r&b, and funk is unmistakable.
The Spring Standards (formerly Old Springs Pike) are an energetic force of three-part harmony circling over a rock 'n' roll sound with an old country aftertaste. From small towns to big cities, they explode on stage with spirit, spontaneity, and a style all their own.
Cited as one of the Top Ten Moments in 2005 for her performance on NBC’s 10! TV show, Liz Longley is a captivating performer who bonds an audience to her music. Ani DiFranco has praised Liz’s music as “gorgeous,” adding “I love it!” Internet listeners agree. Liz was voted the No. 1 all-time female vocalist in Garageband.com’s acoustic category in May 2006.
