First Impressions: We Should Be So Lucky For Jamie Woon

Monday, February 21, 2011

He sang it in a canoe while in Cambodia (literally) and now to kick start the week we have the studio version of Jamie Woon's "Lady Luck", and yes, it is just as good all spiffed up with backing instrumentation. Personally, I love every bit of it right down to it's finger popping rhythm. Maybe I'm off, but "Lady Luck" reminds me what Usher was doing in the late 90's mixed in with the early songwriting of Robin Thicke. Not trying to compare the multi-instrumentalist in any way, but when the chorus kicks in it has a real punchy beat that is funky and poppy all in one step that is the warm familiar. It just has that real seamless spunk and authenticity that is missing from a lot of R&B music right now, just real upbeat and solid soulful honesty. It screams to get mainstream attention due to it being highly infectious, but it's too refined to tampered, really.

I don't know about you, but I'm right excited for whatever Woon is going to cook up for his debut album, Mirrorwriting (due to pop up April 4th). This, along with other revealed tracks like the stunning serenity of, "Night Air" and "Blue Truth", just keep accentuating that positive. Listen below.
