Jimi Jamison: Thunder and Lightning (written by Author/Critic: AJ Wachtel)
(Jimi Jamison: Former lead singer for the group SURVIVOR 1983 -1989 and 2000 - 2006, COBRA on Epic Records and TARGET on A&M Records)
You know the story: In the beginning God created heaven and earth, on the sixth day he invented Heavy Metal, and on the seventh day the creator of the universe rested; his ears ringing from all the power chords he created. And these power chords needed power vocals and that's why Jimi Jamison and his angelic voice is such an important sound today. And you know HIS story: his career as a lead vocalist started in the 70's with TARGET, in the early 80's with COBRA and then with SURVIVOR where his versions of "Eye of The Tiger" from the movie ROCKY and "Burning Heart" from ROCKY IV made his delivery and sound unmistakable and identifiable all over the world. He also co-wrote and sang the theme song for the #1 most seen TV show "BAYWATCH" and to put this in the proper perspective: in many parts of the world there are more people familiar with this song than with any Lennon/McCartney composition.
He sings ballads and rockers and his great range and power really are equally well-suited for either style. Recent songs from his Crossroads Moment CD are good examples of his many talents: "When Rock Was King" is a great Queen/Phil Collins rocker and Jimi's high notes are so sweet and prove he's a singer, not a screamer, and "As Is" is a toughtful. introspective ballad that one can imagine would be a great arena encore complete with thousands of the audience's fists clenched over theirheads and pounding out the beat. And one cant forget "Battersea," a great rocking song with powerful vocals and growling guitars.
Currently, Jimi is working on a project with Bobby Kimball, formerly of Toto, and the high anticipation for this release is great and the message is ringing and clear: if you like thunder and lightning you'll LOVE Jimi Jamison.
Most recently Jamison's single The Restless Kind has had great success in Berlin. Jimi will be performing live in the Boston MA area on July 22nd at Maddy's Saugus MA
