After placing third on “The Voice” in December 2014, Jamison released the single “Velvet” on Republic Records, which went to No. 53 on the charts, but he never released a debut album.
Describing the new material, which doesn’t have a release date yet, he said in a statement, “It’s pop, but it’s got more soul and meaning behind it. To me, it’s important not to simply sing a song, but to pour as much emotion into it as I can and really connect. It’s what I do.”
The Vault Records is centered around a new recording studio on Neville Island in the Cyrus Rice Center, which was constructed as a bank building in 1955 and still has the original vault in the basement. It is owned by engineer/producer Bob McCutcheon, who is also a managing partner of Price Waterhouse’s Pittsburgh office. He wants The Vault to play a “key role in developing and supporting the artistic community in Pittsburgh and beyond.”
He said of Jamison, “His talent is undeniable and his music appeals to a wide audience, as demonstrated by his success on The Voice.”
