“The diversity on offer raises the bar….lovingly crafted, very memorable. Take the plunge and purchase it – these are songs that stay with you and that you’ll want to keep” 
- FolkRadioUK


“There are 12 tracks on Juniper’s Kitchen. None outstay their welcome. I’ve been worrying about how to end this review without resorting to the clichéd ‘If there were any justice..
Eye level with the Stylus UK

 

"The harmonies can be counter-intuitive, she often takes the low harmony and he take the high. There isn’t anyone else that quite sounds like this. Lyrically there is an edge of melancholy; theirs is a great and authentic love, existing with a sense of talent not yet fully appreciated, dreams still to be realized."

1. DRIVE ~ LISTEN

Something for the GPS lady for keeping us alive and our marriage a happy one.
 

Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars

Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals

Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums

 

pick me up let’s take a ride
don’t care anywhere just drive
windows down I feel alive
the engine’s hummin' makes me high

tell me all your reasons why
or don’t say anything just drive
sing along and cruise the dial
me I'm all for killin’ time

hold on, don’t say nothin’s wrong
I don’t wanna be lonely
don’t wanna be blue

I said hold on, don’t say nothin’s wrong
I don’t wanna be lonely
Don’t wanna be lonely with you

it’s not the night to stay inside
wide awake I chase the light
in black and white across the sky
fallin stars they catch my eye

run away with me tonight
too hot sleep so why just try?
let a million miles go by
light em up all neon bright

and I said
hold on, don’t say nothin’s wrong
I don’t wanna be lonely
don’t wanna be blue

I said hold on, don’t say nothin’s wrong
I don’t wanna be lonely
Don’t wanna be lonely
with you
in my life, I need nothin, all is right
So just drive

 

SOLO

 

drop me off its almost time
not too close, or in the light
these spinning wheels
in time with mine
the road another crooked line

just hold on, don’t say nothin’s wrong
I don’t wanna be lonely
don’t wanna be blue

I said hold on, don’t say nothin’s wrong
I don’t wanna be lonely
Don’t wanna be lonely with you

pick me up let’s take a ride
don’t care anywhere just drive...

 

 


2.
RAIL ~ LISTEN

A re-imagining of our award winning tune (and first full co-write) - Anne Lindsay kills on fiddle here.

 

Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums
Anne Lindsay - Violin
John Sheard - Piano

 

Put your ear to the rail,
you can hear my love come down
Where hearts and heroes fail,
I won’t be turned around

Sleepwalking these rails,
I let the grass grow long.
Oh my memory fails,
and I forgot my song.
Blackberries grow wild,
smell of pitch in the sun.
Weeds roll over my mind,
and they almost won.

But I said
no more, no more,
no more, no more

Put your ear to the rail,
you can hear my love come down
Where hearts and heroes fail,
I won’t be turned around

Tearing up these weeds,
blow the smoke in my stack.
The sound of steel on steel,
and there’s no going back.
I got a head full of coal,
hear the lightning crack.
Light a fire in my soul,
and get me back on track.

Put your ear to the rail,
you can hear my love come down
Where hearts and heroes fail,
I won’t be turned around

No more driving this blind,
time to throw that switch.
Drives a spike in my mind,
and makes my fingers itch.
You better get on board,
or get out of my way.
Hauling heavy and slow,
but I’m leaving today.

And I said
no more, no more,
no more, no more

And I know
that I’ve been here before,
And it’s taken its toll on me.
And I know
that I’ve been here before,
And it’s taken its toll on me.
And I know
that I’ve been here before,
And it’s taken its toll on me.

But I’m not giving up anymore,
No I’m not giving up on me…

 

 


3. NOT MAKING HISTORY ~ LISTEN

Wrote this on the morning of Reid’s 40th birthday. Not an artist alive who won’t feel this one deep down.
 

Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums
Paul Rigby - Pedal Steel Guitar
Michael Holland - Piano

 

Monday morning calling me
6am comes too early
Waking from my fantasy
Kinda take its toll on me

But at least it pays a piece
Plenty people left in need
Lots of hungry mouths to feed
Oughtta count myself lucky

Friday night another scene
On the stage of broken dreams
Another hotel gig for me
Only here I play for free

Not where I thought I would be
A long way from easy street
Nothin like you wanted for me
Not makin history

Meant to star in every scene
Break through every dream
I'd make every one of them see
Just to make you proud of me

Cause I got something
bigger than me inside
And I’ll die trying, tryin to win this fight
But I just sit here battling with my pride
And I’ll be back at work tonight

 

Look at me to proud to crawl
But like the clock there on the wall
The big hand makes every call
Yeah, time can make a man feel small

Not a winning year after all
I had my chance and I dropped the ball
That kind of pressure makes my engine stall
With every race too close to call

Guess I kept my order too tall
Too high, so far to fall
I thought by now I’d have it all
Looks like I missed last call

Not where I thought I would be
A long way from easy street
Nothin like you wanted for me
Not makin history

Meant to star in every scene
Break through every dream
I'd make every one of them see
Just to make you proud of me

Cause I got something
bigger than me inside
And I’ll die trying, tryin to win this fight
But I just sit here battling with my pride
And I’ll be back at work tonight

Monday morning calling me, 
6am comes too early,
Waking from my fantasy,
Kinda take its toll on me…


 
4. THIS MUCH I KNOW ~ LISTEN

Wedding vows a la Every Brothers, only we ain’t brothers.

Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitar
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals

 


This much I know
Today with all my heart, I love you so
And we will never part,
our love will grow
And we will make a start,
With seeds we sow
In the garden of our heart

 

Just so you know
While grass is green
and petals put on a show
The beauty unseen
in the roots down below
Is what it takes to hold my heart here

 

Let it be known
I’m not afraid of making plans,
I won’t let go
As long as we are holding hands
That’s where I call home
So stick around, we just got started

 

This much I know
Today with all my heart, I love you so
And we will never part,
our love will grow
And we will make a start,
with seeds we sow
In the garden of our heart

 

Let everyone know
We’re digging deep,
The harvest in time will show
Seasons will change,
Together we will grow old
As long as we two tend this garden

 

This much I know
Today with all my heart, I love you so
And we will never part,
our love will grow
And we will make a start,
with seeds we sow
In the garden of our heart

 

This much I know
Today with all my heart, I love you so
And we will never part,
our love will grow
And we will make a start,
with seeds we sow
In the garden of our heart

This much I know

 

 

5. THE WAY YOU LOOK AT ME ~ LISTEN

Nevermind ‘Jackson’ – we wrote our own barn burner of love!


Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars, Percussion
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums
Anne Lindsay - Violin
Lewis Melville - Dobro

 

I love the way you look at me
Like a bumble bee with honey
It something only you can see
And it’s how I know you love me

I love the way you look at me
Like a picnic when yer hungry
It something only you can see
And it’s how I know you love me

Every mornin faithfully
I say your kisses still taste
Sweeter than before
And when I think you’re foolin me
Never doubt I’ll always
Be the one who'd only
Ask for more

I love the way you look at me
Like a sleep-in on a Sunday
It something only you can see
And it’s how I know you love me

Others look for something new
Might sound crazy but its
True I never do
I am such a lucky fool
I'm so glad I’m stuck with
You upon this love boat
Built for two

 

I love the way you look at me
Like a bathtub full of money
It something only you can see
And it’s how I know you love me

Oh I’m so happy to be seen
I'm so glad that lookin's free
And it’s how I know you love me


 
6. SLOW MOTION KISS ~ LISTEN

The magic of dreams mean never having to say no…

 

Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars, Organ, Percussion
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums

 

its good inside  
outside it hurts               
little dreams will run away if
you dont catch them first    

               
try to write it down for you    
put it on a page               
maybe just go back to sleep and
dream the day away       

           

close your eyes for one more 
slow motion kiss             
nobody cries tonight, no         
nothing exists                  


I’m holdin' back time for one more            
slow motion kiss             
nothin the daylight brings will
ever feel like this

 

its good inside  
outside it hurts               
little dreams will run away if
you dont catch them first     

              

when I lay me down to sleep
it’s for this I pray           
why cant we just go back to sleep and
dream our day away     

 

crawl back inside the sheets 
playback the show                     
pretty things will fade away if
you just let them go

 

close your eyes for one more 
slow motion kiss             
nobody cries tonight, no         
nothing exists                  


I’m holdin' back time for one more
slow motion kiss             
nothin the daylight brings will
ever feel like this

 

doo doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo

 

its good inside  
outside it hurts               
little dreams will run away if
you dont catch them first...

 


 
7. TIMING IS EVERYTHING ~ L ISTEN

From unrequited love to long held goals…truer words were never spoken.

 

Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars, Percussion
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums
John Sheard- Organ

 

I know it takes time,
and nothins a given
So I keep running,
I just never get far
Here on the ground,
reaching for heaven
Standing here staring,
at a sky full of stars


Oh it’s taking so long
For the light to shine on...me

 

Timing is everything
Finding the heart of things
a moving target
Behind all apology
A reason for everything
under the sun


I'm learning to live,
with what I’ve been given
I’m willing to give
everything thing that I’ve got
I’m ready to fight
for my own kind of heaven
I know that I’ll find it
if I never give up
But timing is everything

 

I know that I try;
I know that I’m willing
It’s just that it’s killing me
this standing in line
Am I reaching too high? 
Hitting the ceiling
Am I one in a million;
am I one of a kind?


Oh it’s taking so long
For the light to shine on...me

 

Timing is everything
Finding the heart of things
a moving target
Behind all apology
A reason for everything
under the sun


I'm learning to live,
with what I’ve been given
I’m willing to give
everything thing that I’ve got
I’m ready to fight
for my own kind of heaven
I know that I’ll find it
if I never give up

But timing is everything
Finding the heart of things
a moving target

Behind all apology
A reason for everything
under the sun
I'm learning to live,
with what I’ve been given
I’m willing to give
everything thing that I’ve got
I’m ready to fight
for my own kind of heaven
I know that I’ll find it
if I never give up
But timing is everything



 
8. TAKE ME TO THE SEA LISTEN

A song about cremation…or retirement…same thing for some.


Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars, Percussion
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums
Anne Lindsay - Violin
Lewis Melville - Banjo
Sam Parton - BG Vocals

 

Take me to the sea
Take me to the great and rolling green
That’s where they'll bury me
Just another treasure of the deep
When my days are over
I'll roll into the sea,
I'll wait there for you
Tears of saltwater, 
returning to the blue


Never lost at sea
Tossed upon the waves I’m ever free
The tides they anchor me
Mending nets with
Jacques and old Davy
When my days are over
I'll roll into the sea;
I'll wait there for you
Tears of saltwater,
returning to the blue


SOLO


When I was just a child
I recall my mother taking me
We'd slow the sands of time
As we collected seashells on the beach
Now that we are older
We'll roll into the sea;
I'll wait there for you
Or you wait there for me;
I'll wait there for you
Tears of saltwater,
returning to the blue


When I grow old, Ashes cold
Just let the waves roll over
Let them roll over me
When I grow old, Ashes cold
Just let the waves roll over
Let them roll over me
When I grow old, Ashes cold
Just let the waves roll over
Let them roll over me

 

All hands may visit me
Standing on the shore of any sea
It’s where I'm meant to be
Oh can't you hear the
mermaids calling me

When our days are over
We'll roll into the sea,  
I'll wait there for you
Or you wait there for me,
I'll wait there for you
Or you wait there for me,
I'll wait there for you
Tears of saltwater, 
returning to the blue...


 
9. IMPOSSIBLE SHOES LISTEN

Dedicated and written for the ladies of the RCMP, Armed Forces and women in uniform everywhere. True superheroes.

 

Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars, Percussion
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums
Lewis Melville - Banjo

 

 

Tryin' to walk a straight line
in impossible shoes
Play their game instead of mine,
I’m only gonna lose
They try to push me over,
keep me in line
Take me down a notch,
Make me change my mind

 

I'm on my own,
Wrong way down a one way street
with no headlight on
And no one knows,
Can’t turn around or miss a beat

or it'll all be gone

 

The queen is just a face card,
and the joker makes the rules
When a king among men
rules a house full of fools
The cards are stacked against me,
and the stakes are getting high
But I’m bettin’ everything I've got,
not bluffing with my life

 

I'm on my own,
Wrong way down a one way street
with no headlight on
And no one knows,
Can’t turn around or miss a beat
or it'll all be gone

I thought that they had my back,
I thought my time had come
All they saw was second best,
when I was eyeing number one

 

I'm on my own,
Wrong way down a one way street
with no headlight on
And now I know,
Can’t turn around or miss a beat
or it'll all be gone

But my mama told me
never back down girl
you stay strong

So if yer betting on me giving up,
baby you'd be wrong

 

Tryin' to walk a straight line,
In impossible shoes                  



 
10. FALL LISTEN

Commitment – maybe the most freeing thing you can ever do.

 

Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums

 

Don't throw in the towel
you've barely broke a sweat
please respect your vows
lord knows the ink's still wet
           
Before there's broken trust
keep your eye on the prize
temptation might give us
the chance to turn a new leaf over
           
Fall, I'll catch you when you fall
I'll try to catch it all
anything you can throw at me

don't buy their silver lines
let em turn your pretty head
don't  leave the gold behind
or down that path be led

don’t tell me what's been lost
tell me how much you've learned
forget about the cost
and bridges we have burned

Fall, I'll catch you when you fall
I'll try to catch it all
anything you can throw at me

if you fall
I won't turn you away
you know
through it all
I’m here to stay

Fall, I'll catch you when you fall
I'll try to catch it all
anything you can throw

Fall, I'll catch you when you fall
I'll try to catch it all
Anything you can throw at me


 
11. BIGGEST FAN LISTEN

First song CVM ever wrote – and proof that even a crappy ex is good for something.

 

Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars, Percussion
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums
Paul Rigby - Pedal Steel Guitar
Michael Holland - Piano

 

I guess it's been a long day
Much too long to talk to me
Tell me how things are going
Tell me how it's gonna be

 

Now I've gone and done it again
I've made you turn away from me
Caught up in this foolish habit
Of trying hard to make you see

 

That you don't have to

kiss my crooked mouth,

hold on to my hand
You don't have to talk to me for hours
or try to understand

 

You don't have to share your fears
Or risk your pride, or even be my man
But I wish you would,
If you think you can

 

And yes it's been a long night
Longer than it needed to be
Let’s hide that hurt and
pain inside us
Underneath these dirty sheets

 

Seems everything has changed
Cause I'm not
who you want me to be
Never mind what I saw
Were you even looking at me?

 

But you don't have to

kiss my crooked mouth,
hold on to my hand
And you don't have to

talk to me for hours
or try to understand

 

You don't have to
tell the truth every time
and you don’t have to
try to be a man
But I think you should
If you think you can

 

And all the things you never said
Things that happened
outside our bed
They're packed in bags
with faded clothes
And all the things I think I know

 

I guess I've been awake all night
And it's much too late to talk to you
Too late for us to have that fight
Find out what was really true

To tell you how I'm really doing
Show you what I'm going though
Instead I'll take a
page from your book
And write this fearless song
for you

 

So you don't have to
kiss my crooked mouth,
hold on to my hand
Talk to me for hours
Try to understand

 

You don't have to reach for me
when you're down my dear
But believe me if you can
I've always been
Your biggest fan

 

Talk to me,
If you can
I’ll always be
Your biggest fan

 


 
12. WORDS WITH YOU LISTEN

A little marital advice we hold dear.

 

Reid Jamieson - Vocals, Guitars, Organ, Percussion
Carolyn Victoria Mill - Vocals
Keith Rose - Bass
Jon Arason - Drums

 

I'll have words with you                      
I know you want me to                         
After all we've been through         
Put you fears aside                                
Of just another fight                             
When there's good work to do   

                                           
It never has to be
a bad thing that we talk          
About everything and nothin,
nothin can be something                    
I always wanna be
the socket you draw energy from    

                                                
Put your plans aside                             
Of losing sleep tonight                         
Over worrisome things                                                            
Let your mouth decide                        
That there's nothin left to hide        
Only understanding      

                                                                        
It always seems to be
a good thing that we talk       
About everything and nothing         
Nothing can be something                 
I always wanna be the rock
that you're depending upon  

                                    
Rock it in a good way                            
This boat will sail along                      
Talk to me, any day                               
It’s true that the truth
can't be wrong

I'll have words you                                
I know you want me to                         
And it’s the right thing to do                                                 
Put your hand in mine                         
Look me in the eyes                               
And tell me everything true    

                                   
It always seems to be
a good thing that we talk        
About everything and nothing         
Nothing can be something                 
I always wanna be
the topic you're expanding upon 

                                                   
I'll have words with you                      
I know you want me to

The history of Juniper...

 

CVM never really wrote, and certainly never sang a note in public before they met. Back in 2002 Reid asked her to join him for a song at a Valentines Day benefit at the Rivoli in Toronto. At the end of the song (Billy Joel's 'You May Be Right') they had their first kiss right there on stage, and history was made. It was Valentine's Day and the two have not been apart since. A dozen ditties have sprung from their love and you can hear it in every tune.

 

They began writing together not long after that fateful night, with CVM taking on the job of manager, webmistress, and pretty much every other task needed to help Reid start his career. More of a behind the scenes gal, what began as minor edits of existing lyrics and arrangements, turned into a full fledged songwriting duo the day that Stuart Mclean called to ask Reid to join him on a cross country train trip. They didn't have an original train song for the voyage, and CVM (affectionately nicknamed 'the colonel') was having none of that. And so the two sat down and wrote RAIL together in one sitting, she on lyrics, he on music. That song made the show something more than anyone intended. It saw Reid placed as a finalist in a local radio contest, as well as the song being featured in a popular tv series. Rail then went on to win them the grand prize for folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. That song is re-imagined here on Juniper's Kitchen, and set on fire by the blistering violin work of Blue Rodeo's Anne Lindsay. The old country flavour is further highlighted on various tracks with the pedal steel of Paul Rigby (Neko Case) and Lewis Melville (dobro/banjo).

 

While CVM was keen to contibute much of the lyrics on many of their new songs, and even some of the music and arrangements, she still wasn't a live performer. A few years back Reid encouraged CVM to join him at house concerts, where her saucy stories added a certain spice to the shows and kept him company on the road. Their unusual harmonies, where often she takes the low and he the high, weaving in and out (thanks to Reid's impressive harmonizing abilities) created a compelling performance that audience members wanted to take home. This combination was yet to exist on disc, and so Juniper's Kitchen was conceived. Every song on the record was written and performed together. Even the vocals were recorded at the same time so that the energy of the live show was better represented. The two struck gold when they hooked up with Michael Holland, who really believed in the songs and encouraged them to capture their vocals (and all that feeling) at the same time. The support, experience and energy he brought to their recording went a long way to making it the magical musical marriage they hoped it would be. Recorded at the home studio of Michael Holland in West Vancouver, as well as in their bedroom studio over the summer of 2014, the intimacy captured makes for a record unlike any other.
