about

Crazy Time is the first solo album by Maine-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Greg Jamie. Combining the textural with the tuneful, Crazy Time echoes the dark, eerie qualities of Jamie’s previous work (with his bands O’Death and Blood Warrior), while inhabiting a sonic space all its own. Traditional folk melodies contrast cold, synthetic textures, generating an unsettling tension between intimacy and mystery. The atmosphere evokes both the weight of cold, New England winters and the ethereality of a sci-fi dreamscape. Jamie’s singing is in peak form, deftly balancing energy and tone with delicate vulnerability. Lyrical themes confront notions of disappointment, inevitability, mental illness and adventure. Elements of the uncanny and playful are embraced in order to avoid predictable patterns and dismantle preconceptions of loner-folk. In his first official solo effort, Greg Jamie has crafted a singular work of disorienting beauty.

Crazy Time was recorded over the course of each season in 2016 with the help of Colby Nathan. The majority of the album was recorded in the comfort of Jamie’s home in Portland, Maine. Greg Hartunian added overdubs and mixed the album in Los Angeles. The album was mastered by Caleb Mulkerin (Big Blood, Cerberus Shoal) in South Portland, Maine.
