Jamie Alimorad- Cornerstone, EP
by Rick Redding
(Boston, MA, USA)
Jamie Alimorad is an award-winning singer and songwriter out of the Boston college scene. His debut effort, "Cornerstone", is a perfect example of what this artist is all about; mature songwriting and excellent musicianship.
This four song EP is fresh and exciting and offers a new direction to today's otherwise mundane pop/rock genre.
The lead single and first track "What You Have" is bright and fun that starts with Alimorad's vocal and guitar before the band kicks it into high gear. The chorus boats booming harmonies and the breakdown in the bridge is one of the most memorable moments of the track.
"She Is..." is a modern day power ballad and is arguably the best song on the album. Alimorad sings with such passion and emotion on this song that it tugs at your heart. "Stay With Me" is similar to that of an 80's/arena rock track. The track begins with a swell and goes from 0-60 in a matter of moments. "Cornerstone" closes with "In Her Smile", a sing along mid-tempo ballad that shows off part of Alimorad's Beatles influence with the "Rubber Soul"-esque harmonies during the pre-chorus.
All and all this is a very strong showing for a new artist. Alimorad is currently unsigned and an independent artist and "Cornerstone" shows that he is NOT just some wannabe musician putting out a homemade album. Be sure to check out "Cornerstone" and one of the best new artists around.

About The Writer
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
