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 oneâ€™s life. Itâ€™s full of graceful melodies, attractive instrumental touches and knockout arrangements that support the songsâ€™ 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.
