Jameson Elder is an Atlanta bred singer-songwriter who definitely knows his way around a studio. In his newest album, Where Beauty Remains, Jameson tells a story of love and the hardship that comes along with it.
The lyrics are straightforward, heartwarming, totally makes you want to learn every word and sing along over and over again. From beginning to end, Jameson makes you feel the happy and sad (in a good way), in a sweet roller coaster of great love and loss. His voice is classic, sweet and when paired up with the right song, totally bad boy rock-star. He had some great songs on this album but absolute favorite was the more upbeat "Pony Ride" - which you can actually download right now, for FREE.
Where Beauty Remains marks a new chapter for Jameson Elder. Jameson began his musical endeavor early in life, when he was classically trained on piano before progressing to the guitar at age 12. In high school his guitar teacher let him borrow Tom Petty’s Greatest Hits album;
“It just made sense to me. Everything on that record was instinctual. Nothing was forced, nothing was showy.”The influence of the album is evident in Elder’s music, which lies somewhere between a modern-day Tom Petty, stirred with the smooth hooks of Damien Rice.
In 2007, the Atlanta-bred musician packed his bags and headed to Nashville to embark on a road that many before him have traveled. After attending Belmont University, Elder was determined to find his own way and his own voice. Jameson set his sights on the production and performance of his own music.
After releasing his first EP and Kickstarter-funded album, The Home I’ve Never Known, in April 2012, he received high-praise which led to sharing the stage with the likes of Sixpence None The Richer, Phil Keaggy, and Matthew Mayfield. He was also selected to participate in the Eddie’s Attic Songwriter’s Shooutout. In the months to follow, Elder learned a lot about life and himself, leading him to head back into the studio to begin telling the story of Where Beauty Remains.
