Born in New Zealand, singer/songwriter/pianoplayer/guitarist Steven has also lived in Australia, Spain and is currently on a musical journey through the United States. 2004 Melbourne Australia. Hemingway's Cats is his third independent release,and described as urban folk-rock,somewhere between Dave Mathews and Billy Joel, Steven's music speaks straight to your soul with a voice that conveys emotion born of experience. --------------- There's inevitably a touch of the Joel/John axis in the work of Australian Steven Jaymes - Check out the outro to Emily for a start- and that's the nature of the singing piano player I suppose - the Ben Folds and The Joe Jacksons are few and far between - but there's a healthy leavening of the spirit of Leon Russell, Bruce Springsteen and Van Morrison in there too, which makes this album a truly sweet surprise' Michael Smith Drum Media - Sydney --------------- 'Steven Jaymes' Hemingway's Cats is an absolute outstanding album. Smooth, creamy, soulful, and luscious. The man exudes huge talent both in voice and song writing ability.'
