Why they are in The Spotlight: This dynamic piano-driven pop/rock quintet from California is the brainchild of prolific singer-songwriter Cameron Jaymes (vocals, guitar). According to Jaymes, the name stems from the kind of bond the five share when they come and collaborate together: “As we made the record I really connected with the guys,” Jaymes says. “It became this family reunion of musicians, for me, and a revolving collaborative of buddies I’ve made.”
The sound is very reminiscent of another piano-driven pop/rock group, One Republic but unlike the Colorado superstars who are much more understated in their sound, Jaymes Reunion goes a little harder, taking in sounds from groups like Maroon 5, Switchfoot and Relient K, giving their sound a decidedly harder edge than Ryan Tedder and Co. To put a more modern parallel, think SafetySuit with a piano in the middle of the stage (the band recently toured with SafetySuit!).
