    ABOUT THE BAND:

    Jamison Covington and Parker Case are JamisonParker. In early 2003 Covington relocated from Kentucky to collaborate on music with Case after exchanging demos via mail. Between assembling material, jobs and school, the duo began their stage show performing acoustic in front of friends' bands.

    In late April they accepted an invite from their manager to head to the East Coast for the annual Skate and Surf festival in Asbury Park, NJ to catch some of their favorite bands. They arrived with an incredible repertoire of sparkling, indie-pop rock gems and their acoustic guitars. Word of mouth spread on a casual merch booth set they performed and soon kids were demanding a repeat. They obliged, even playing a late night set at a neighboring hotel party. The buzz on the duo's performances led to scoring a slot on the actual Skatefest stage the following day when a confirmed band had to cancel. It went over so well there was no time to think of a band name and JamisonParker were born.

    "We went from showing up and not having a stage at all, to having a slot on the second main stage," says Case. Opportunities came a knocking and the band quickly defined what was important to them: crafting timeless songs, connecting with people through music and all the while doing things one step at a time. They found that understanding within Interscope Records and set out to achieve their goals.

    In August 2003 they wrote, performed and co-produced their debut release, notes&photographs, with Dave Trumfio (Wilco, The Anniversary, The Pulsars) at his Kingsize Soundlabs in Los Angeles. The EP is a sonic testament to the band's steadfast indie rock upbringing, which according to Covington, included a diet of acts as diverse as the Replacements' Paul Westerberg, the Goo Goo Dolls' John Rzeznik and Cursive. notes&photographs is also a testament to Case's homespun recording techniques, a number of segments from the EP were tracked by Case at his home.

    "I brought a lot of the stuff I recorded from my house into the studio and some of it was actually kept," he says. "It was re-EQed and dropped into the mix." Featuring four tracks penned throughout the pair's early 2003 collaborations and a new track written during the actual recording session itself ("Your Song"), notes&photographs spotlights Case's incredible instrumentation and arrangement abilities blended with Covington's poignant lyrics and heartfelt vocal talent. "It's always been a journal type thing, a personal thing," says Covington of his words.

    With a proposed full-length recording session in spring 2004, look for JamisonParker to be on the road in support of notes&photographs for several months. The act is being backed by drummer Jarrod Alexander and bassist Ted Vega.

    "We definitely want to give the EP enough time to get into everyone's system," says Case. "Our initial goal was just to make demos and shop them to indie labels," Covington recalls. "It's kind of scary because things happened so fast. But I'm just so grateful for the chance that we've got."
