Jamie McLean Band’s concerts have become known for their jaw dropping musicianship, rich three-part vocal harmonies and phenomenal songwriting and the trio released their first and long awaited live album, Live at Gibson this week.

American Songwriter premiered a free download of of the track "Natalie" last week. “‘Natalie' is our drummer Brian's tribute to actress Natalie Portman,” says Jamie McLean. “There was a billboard of her plastered around New York City one winter that sparked the idea of a love song combining Natalie’s ‘girl next door’ image with a classic Hollywood Werewolf character. It’s a twisted, rock and roll romance song.”  Grab the tune HERE
Originally the guitarist for New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band and playing sets at Madison Square Garden, Bonnaroo, Japan’s Fuji Rock and working with the likes of Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews and Norah Jones, Jamie McLean now heads up the Jamie McLean Band and plays an original brand of red hot blues, roots, southern soul and uptown rock and roll.
Live At Gibson was recorded at the famed Gibson Showroom in New York City and captures the band in its element.  Live and in front of a captivated crowd is where Jamie McLean Band truly shines and this night was no different.  The band dug deep into their catalog to produce a set list and album that features their original brand of blues, rock and soul.  Special guests like American Idol winner Taylor Hicks and Robert Randolph keys man Jason Crosby add some great flavor to the set.  Bluesy staples like “Crazy About You” and “Country Living” get turned up even more in front of a crowd and JMB does more than justice to covers like Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider” and Otis Redding’s “Mr. Pitiful.”
