John Ziegler reviewed the new Jamestown Story album “Find a Way” in today’s DNT and said this: “(It is) … a little pop masterpiece that lyrically centers on hoping for second chances as well as the importance that faith plays in one’s life. It’s full of graceful melodies, attractive instrumental touches and knockout arrangements that support the songs’ intent without overpowering the vocals.”

Dane Schmidt, a full-time Minneapolis-based musician who frequently arranges gigantic concerts starring young musicians at Grandma’s Sports Garden, listed 5 Things to Know about the new Jamestown Story album.

  • 1. This is the first full length we’ve put out in over two years.
  • 2. About 70% of it was recorded in Tokyo, Japan.
  • 3. “Every Moment” was actually written by Dane’s brother Jordan.
  • 4. The CD contains half acoustic songs and half full-band songs.
  • 5. This is my personal favorite of all the Jamestown Story cd’s.

Meanwhile, Jamestown Story is playing a CD release show at 7 p.m. Saturday at Beaner’s Central, 324 N. Central Ave.
