Artist: Jayme Dawicki

Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
Jayme Dawicki has a great voice. It can be soft and comforting, but also is very strong and clear. She’s got a good contemporary pop feel, but she also knows how to spice things up a bit.
She features both piano and guitar (but mostly piano) and she’s from my part of the world (Midwest US…Wisconsin to be exact) so it’s no surprise that her music sort of speaks to me.
Closer is a real stand out too. It’s kind of dark and dirgy and really cool.
Paper Dolls is a nice almost cabaret tune. Nice jangly piano and vocals with attitude. This one has caught my ear more than once.
Here I Go starts out sounding like Building a Mystery. But as soon as she begins singing it’s all her.
I really like all these songs, she’s very good and this is a cool and interesting release. It’s going in my personal rotation for sure.
