Jamie Lin Wilson has always carried a particular wit about her songwriting. Straight-shooting but never shallow, Wilson inhabits a particular cross-section of Americana that blends honest-to-goodness country with storyteller's folk.

The songs of which her new album, Jumping Over Rocks, is comprised are fine evidence of that artful, personable finesse.
