Nashville, TN (Top40 Charts/ Cari Cole Voice & Music Co.) - Nikki Jaymes, a 17-year old singer-songwriter turned independent recording artist, who sings about love, heartache and the trials and tribulations of teenage life, is announcing the release of her debut album Dreamin' Of. The EP of five original songs is the culmination of four years of songwriting, and subsequent artist development under the direction of New York City-based Cari Cole, Cari Cole Voice and Music Co. Cari Cole is an award-winning singer-songwriter, producer and vocal coach to Grammy winners (Chrisette Michelle/Def Jam Records, Donald Fagen/Steely Dan) ; American Idol Finalists (Kimberley Locke); legendary rock stars (Courtney Love, Jonathon Cain/Journey); and newcomer S-Curve recording artist Diane Birch among many others.

A country pop girl with a city-loving heart, Nikki serves up a good dose of music that moves and rocks over a bed of steel guitars, ivory and ebony keys, fiddles and strings, big backing vocals and edgy guitars. Her sultry velvet voice croons with an ache and twang far beyond her years. Jaymes and Cole came together to create a musical project with a goal to combine a country/ pop sound along with the attitude and emotions of a young artist making her way as a newcomer on the scene. The collaboration shows the depth of Jaymes' songwriting potential and the strength and skill of her vocals sitting over a bed of power pop/country production. Says Jaymes, 'I wanted to release a record that would appeal to everyone from teenagers, young adults and today's audience of crossover country music fans. My love of music is rooted in the sounds of true country/pop music. I grew up near Boston, but I'm just an Eastern, country girl at heart. I hope the lyrics and music inspire others to dream and believe in what's possible.'

Dreamin' Of gets off to a racy start with That Girl Was Me, a song that combines a fresh, up-country lyric alongside a groove-based rhythm and a pop/country/rock sound. Next up is One Last Chance, a more traditional country tune featuring fiddle and pedal steel guitar weaving around a tale of heartache and uncommitted love. The title cut, Dreamin' Of, is a smooth sultry ballad that features a four-piece string section and Jaymes' exquisite vocals, featuring the backing vocals of vocalist/producer Cari Cole. The next cut is an 'off-the-hook' pop/rock tune called Teenage World that relates the trials and tribulations of a teenager in a typical American high school. The final cut So Far is a soft, mellow ballad that brings back the instrumentation, harmony and style of the true traditional pop/country ballad and features Nikki's voice, which many find to be far beyond her years.

Nikki Jaymes started singing all genres of music from classical and rock to pop and country from the early age of 11. By the time she was 13, she had a dream of becoming a singer-songwriter and a wish to record an album that could establish her career as both a recording artist/vocalist and songwriter. At the time, most of Jaymes' peers were into rap, metal and screamo, but Nikki was instead drawn to the contemporary country sound moved by lyrics that combined melodic vocals with stories of deep, intense feelings and experiences. When vocalist, songwriter and producer Cari Cole of Cari Cole of Cari Cole Voice and Music Co. in New York City first met Nikki Jaymes, at 13 years old, Cole was taken by the deep burgundy colored mezzo tone coming out of such a young girl and the indescribable passion that lived behind her young eyes. Over years of songwriting and numerous trips to NYC from Boston, under Cole's direction and guidance, Jaymes finished her debut EP and launched it on June 23, 2009 on popular online music stores.
