Jami Lunde / Press

“A world traveled alt.country troubadour, Lunde parks it in Colorado with some local luminaries with national reputations and turns in the set people that who would like a Lucinda Williams that speaks to a younger generation have been looking for. With concise, hard hitting lyrics leading the way, this is one of those indie albums that sneaks up on you and blows you away. A welcome new vector for Americana for sure.”

“Jami Lunde is one of the primary musical forces emanating from the outsized arts community in Lyons. She produces concerts in the area, including the popular tributes to various venerated artists at Oskar Blues. She's also a serious songwriter and performer. ”

“Over the years, Jami has gathered over $16,000 from you generous and caring folks of this wonderful little town for: the Japanese tsunami, the Haitian earthquake/Bresma orphanage, the Fourmile and Waldo fires.”

“On Sept. 8, singer-songwriter Jami Lunde of Lyons will have the opportunity to play Steve's famous room that's quietly tucked in the mountain town of Carbondale. Lunde is touring nationally to promote her latest album, “Big Black Birds,” that features Chris Funk of The Decemberists. ”

“A Little Bit Blue”

“Jami Lunde #29 on The Best of 2011”

“Jami’s vocals remind me of Mindy Smith, but with a little more ‘umph’ behind them - and I LOVE Mindy Smith, so that’s a big compliment from me! Not too many singers are comfortable showing genuine vulnerability or singing simple, single notes instead of implementing excessive runs, vibratos, and vocal gymnastics that are now mandatory for anyone to take singers seriously, thanks to shows like American Idol. These ladies voices are so pure, and the emotion evoked from the lyrics really shine through - and isn’t that the whole point of music - to convey emotion?”

“Now celebrating a “new beginning,” Lunde is letting her old friends know she will be one of three top Colorado songwriters featured in a concert (Rocky Mtn Folks Festival @ Planet Bluegrass) in Lyons this weekend. ”

“This album builds and builds and builds, it is a piece of work that grows on you each time you listen to it. Which in my opinion, is the real sign of a truly great piece of music. You will hear something new that you missed with each listen. Either a lyric you didn’t catch first listen or a riff that hits you right between the eyes.”

“from the get go, I realized she was on a journey and that journey included her songs and experiences and everything life was throwing her way. She is a take-charge kind of gal and she creates good results on her journey. She is a force on stage with her strong and driving Gibson guitars and soft yet powerful voice that surrounds the lyrics and propels her songs across to the audience. Her songs are poems full of imagery and wonder, as in the title cut, “as the Black Birds fly by as she is losing her mind, they steal her sunshine but collect all her water and love her like a daughter.””

“Jami Lunde Big Black Birds Awnry Girl Records 3.5 out of 5 stars One can only imagine the loneliness that accompanies solo travels through Colorado, California and Southeast Asia. Hence, Jami Lunde titled her second album after the birds that helped keep her loneliness at bay. The melancholic loneliness, however, slips through and is strikingly present in both the instrumentals and vocals on her most recent CD.”
