Editorial Reviews

Expunged Records (home to Blind Pilot) releases the debut full-length from Bend, Oregon-based, 21-year-old pianist/singer Sara Jackson-Holman entitled When You Dream.

An 11-track collection of melodic, sultry, thought-provoking, and imagery-drenched tracks already garnering comparisons to Feist, Adele, and Norah Jones, When You Dream is the result of a classically-trained musician making music for herself and a chance run-in with a record label that led to a studio album.

That chance run-in found Expunged Records' president Anthony McNamer clicking on Jackson-Holman's Myspace page after she left a comment on Blind Pilot's page, following a live performance she had seen.

''I had seen Blind Pilot and fell in love with their music,'' explains Jackson-Holman. ''I wrote on their Myspace wall. It was a typical fan post, telling them I loved their music and asking if they were planning to come back through anytime soon. Their label was looking through their comments one day, randomly clicked on my picture, heard my music, and wrote me asking if I had a demo CD.''

Surprisingly, she did not.

However, several conversations with McNamer and a few home recordings later, McNamer was hooked and signed her to Expunged Records. With only five or six songs completed by the time Expunged Records had decided to do a full-length with her, Jackson-Holman spent the summer writing the rest of the album. Then, with the songs complete, she entered the studio with Blind Pilot's producer, Skyler Norwood, and began recording what would become When You Dream.

''The song most affected by the production was probably Maybe Something's Wrong'', she says. ''The instruments we added gave it a darker, richer texture that I had not really anticipated when I wrote it.''

''Also, When You Dream took on a much emptier, dream-like state when the electronic-sounding drums were added. That really contributed to the song's character.''

The result is an album Jackson-Holman (and everyone else who has heard it) is ecstatic about, one she is anxious to hit the road and tour in support of, and truly immerse herself in. Anyone that hears When You Dream will immediately wonder how this music and these lyrics could be created by a 21-year-old.

Hearing (and being captivated and entranced by) "Into the Blue" on the Season 2 Finale of "Castle" sent me out to the internet to find out who and what. A little research and I decided that I was willing to risk a few dollars and roll the dice on what looked to be intriguing music, so I placed my order for the CD.

I live on a small island in the South Pacific, and mail takes a long time to get here, but when it arrived, I immediately stuck it in my CD player. I really didn't have much in the way of preconceptions, having heard only the one song, which was probably a good thing. Because SJ-H's music wasn't *like* anything I'd heard before! As a friend who listened to it in my car while we were driving said, "I don't know how to classify it; it's different." Which it definitely is ... but only in the best ways possible!

The first and most obvious are the amazing qualities of the vocals. Wow!!! Emotional depth *and* interesting stylings. Next are the melodies themselves and the arrangements, which, while lean (or uncluttered--definitely a good thing), communicate as effectively as Ms. Jackson-Holman's voice. Those were the things that kept me hooked through the first three or four listens, just luxuriating in the richness of the sound.

But then I started paying more attention to the lyrics, and Wow! again. There are three or four phrases on this album that would have been worth the purchase price simply for the poetry found on the liner notes, even without the music. My favorite: "from my pen the red ink ebbs and flows--my paper stained with my yearning to be free".

So if you're considering purchasing this album, go for it--without hesitation! You won't be sorry ... and you'll keep finding new reasons to listen again!

Possibly the best debut of 2010. This album is great from start to finish. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes Adele, Feist, Norah Jones or the like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really a review, only a humble recommendation June 29, 2010

Not really a review, only a humble recommendation because I am not a musician, just an appreciator of music and I heard one of the songs---"Into the Blue" during the "Castle" finale and was just taken in by the words. I really like how Amazon lets you listen to snippets of songs before buying.

Anyway, Sara's voice is so clear and strong. "Into the Blue" is beautiful. For other moms out there, this is a CD you can listen to with your daughter. The songs have lyrics (remember them?) not just drum machines and throbbing bass.

Thanks, Sara, for sharing your talent!
