Doug Davis caught up withJamie Lidell
recently in advance of the genre-blending blue-eyed soul and electro artist's upcoming gig at the Granada Theater tomorrow night.Read the fruits of Davis' labor, as saeen in this week's print edition, right here
--but pay special attention to this telling quote, which aptly describes Lidell's current headspace, as well as the kind of offering you can expect at tomorrow night's show:
"I am a bit of a musical schizophrenic," Lidell says. "On this record [the May-released Compass], I made a deliberate effort to avoid pandering to the expectations of myself, to critics and the audience."
