“Jamie Meyer’s latest release, “Good Night to Be Young”, is a great example of melding rock, Americana and pop. When first listening to the tracks, there was a comfortable familiarity that enveloped me. I couldn’t put my finger on it, so I just let it flow and enjoyed the lyrical narratives and great musical execution. Sort of like enjoying a rich, barrel-aged whisky.
Then it dawned on me… the Bon Jovi of the new millennium!”
–Brent Harvey, Executive Producer / Hollywood Music In Media Awards
“If it’s true that good things happen to good people, then Jamie can expect so really great things in his future! His latest CD titled “Good Night To Be Young” is every bit as impressive as his others. Born in Hising Island, Gothenburg, Sweden on August 31, Jamie first gain national attention when he appeared on the Swedish television show Popstars.
His rendition of Bill Withers “Ain’t No Sunshine” was the audiences favorite and It was that performance that set the music world on notice that Jamie Meyer was the real deal!”
–Verne Gavitt, PRLog Free Press Release, Tampa FL
“Meyer’s vocal range is superb and spot on. The songs he played off his 2008 CD, (“Great Big Chance”) & 2010 CD (“Good Night To Be Young”) were testament to his strong vocal ability and propensity for great hooks. The commercial appeal of Meyer is not superficial – the music gets down into your bones”
