Jamie Lin Wilson (from the album Jumping Over Rocks available on )
Getting the top prize for people watching, Jamie Lin Wilson mentally puts a brake on the inner movie reel scene in her mind as she gazes on an endless parade of humans in “Everybody’s Moving Slow”. The musical backing for the tune matches the pace, leisurely rolling underneath her vocals, story and song joining to make the mood. Jumping Over Rocks offer its tracks with the same consideration, soundtracking the lives of its characters with music complementing their decisions and deeds. Jamie Lin Wilson surrounds the tenderness of “If I Told You” with soft acoustics, uses an accelerated rhythm that mirrors the anxiety of the lady wistfully eyeing the door in “Run”, and harmonizes with Evan Felker under the glow of “Oklahoma Stars”.
The emotions and actions of her characters are the stepping stones that Jamie Lin Wilson scatters for Jumping Over Rocks, her words the details that fully flesh out the men and women in the stories. Jack Ingram mutters mornin’ as he pairs with Jamie Lin Wilson in “Instant Coffee Blues” for a late-night tryst withering in the light of day. Jumping Over Rocks timidly opens the album with tenderness as it speaks directly to a lover who ‘sees inside me better than I do’ in “Faithful and True” and finds lost souls left sleeping alone and seeking ways to make it through “Life & Death”. Jamie Lin Wilson digs deep in our secret thoughts, shuffling through the carved visuals of surface views to find the truth in the fine points. Jumping Over Rocks opens the passenger door for a road trip coming home in “The Being Gone” and tries to stop time to capture a moment “In a Wink” while Jamie Lin Wilson sashays out on a Country ramble to open her heart on “Eyes for You”.
