Review -- JAMIE WARREN -- Right Here Right Now

RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW
Jamie Warren
Independent
7-out-of-10
Right Here Right Now is the fourth CD release for Jamie Warren, a guy who has become a veteran of country music in Canada since his 1996 debut release of Fallen Angel.
Warren's latest release starts off hot with the cut Some Days You Will, and over the 12-song CD he offers up a solid country CD.
The current release from the album is She Loves To Dance which followed the initial single release from the CD She's Not Lyin'. They are a couple of the songs local country fans can no doubt hear by being at the Painted Hand Casino April 7, when Warren will be part of a three man show with Duane Steele and Willie Mack.
She Just Loves To Dance is a definite radio favourite. It is a country love song with a moderate beat. This isn't a hard driving romp, nor does it bog down to be purely a heartstrings-tugger. As a result it comes across as a nice song that will be popular on radio for a time, although this won't be a song you remember six months from now. It is sort of disposable country in that sense, but not every single will be a long-term classic.
She's Not Lyin' is a sadder song, although it has a similar pattern. Solid, but short-term.
In fact, this whole CD has that feel. It's the kind you will enjoy once you get it home. It is likely to get a regular play for a while too. Warren's style is like that.
Then one day you'll move on to a newer CD and this one will likely fade from memory rather quickly.
Still, while it's fresh you will enjoy this CD, and you won't regret the purchase. Warren is a veteran, and he knows how to deliver a country song.
