JMSN, “Rolling Stone”
Ahead of what will be his 13th album in 10 years (including one instrumental release and two “chopped not slopped” reworks) titled Heals Me, it’s great to hear L.A.-based (but Detroit-bred) multi-instrumentalist JMSN (aka Christian Berishaj) back in form with his first studio release in three years called “Rolling Stone”. It’s also a throwback to his earlier music, to me less complex and more engaging than his more recent work. “Rolling Stone” at its essence is carefree, compelling and soulful. Quietly dynamic, JMSN sounds great and I can picture “Rolling Stone” as the opening song on his upcoming tour. Having seen his live show back in 2013 and written about him many times (hit the search button on my blog page), he’s an engaging and unpredictable performer, so there is no time like the present to join the JMSN train.
