Jaime Garamella

Mash up the quirky songcraft of Elvis Costello and Ben Folds with the stylistic vigor of Ryan Adams and Fountains Of Wayne, and you get Jaime Garamella. With lyrics and hooks far from boilerplate, the Brooklyn-based songwriter has a Jekyll-and-Hyde approach -- writing timeless acoustic tunes steeped in American soul, country, folk, and blues, but with the fire of a blistering Marshall stack just below the surface of even his gentlest fingerpicking. He recently performed at Lincoln Center at the NewSong Music Showcase & Contest Finals. [+]
