JamisonParker?s debut full length "Sleepwalker" is a collection of well-crafted songs fitted with gorgeous sounds. The guitar tones alone were contrived with the kind of attention to detail that would make a Swiss watchmaker jealous. Putting yourself repeatedly through the wringer, whether it?s in search of the perfect guitar tone, or in dedication to the fine art of artfully spilling your guts, leads to a kind of certainty. Sleepwalker is filled with the confidence and artistic ambition pretty much unchanged since before Jamison and Parker were JamisonParker.

"JamisonParker is not Emo. Jamisonparker does not write juvenile lyrics. The whole Emo/Pop/Pop-Punk/Punk/Alternative thing is going too far. I actually met these guys on South Street in Philly after one of their shows at the Pontiac Grille and we asked Jamison what type of music they write. He said, "Rock, just rock ya know, too many people try classify bands these days, it's all rock music." I thought he had a good point because whether or not it's hard or soft or in between it's still rock and always has been. This band should make it big, they've got the talent and that other dimension that the majority of bands out there don't have."

"This is a pretty good emo-pop band. They're very commercial sounding, but they aren't typical power-pop emo, they have much stronger and more prominent melodies, and intricately layered parts that compliment each other perfectly for the ultimate pop punch. Some of the lyrics are ridiculously juvenile ("Sleeping's overrated, we lay awake and cry, if this is love then kill me now and save me from my life"), but it doesn't bother me too much because musically these guys so have their own style. They aren't held back by the confines of the emo scene sound like every other band, they just write really good pop-rock songs, and actually use overproduction well to add depth to their sound instead of losing it like most bands do. The My Bloody Valentine style guitar on Tearing Through Me is a welcome surprise and further evidence that these guys have a wider range of influences and creativity than their emo peers."
