about

Cornerstone is the debut album of award-winning singer and songwriter Jamie Alimorad. The album comprises of four catchy pop/rock songs that were composed while Alimorad attended Northeastern University. Cornerstone captures exactly what Alimorad is all about- a classic sound with a modern twist. Raised on artists such as The Tubes, The Beatles and Toto, Alimorad has been able to mold himself into an artist mature beyond his years.

"In today's music there's not much emphasis on melody," Alimorad says. "When I hear songs on the radio, rock music particularly, the melody tends to stay on one or two notes and the song itself tends to stay very static. I grew up listening to artists of the 60's, 70's and 80's who wrote songs that transformed throughout the entire piece. Somewhere along the way that was lost and I know there's still a cry for that type of song out there today, and that's what I try to do."

The debut effort kicks off with the catchy, up-tempo lead single "What You Have". The track begins with Alimorad's edgy vocals and guitar. The band then kicks in and this song is off and running and the listener is on an exciting ride that is reminiscent of early Beatles tunes. "She Is..." is a modern day power ballad that is as beautiful as it is emotional. The combination of Alimorad's booming vocals, the soothing nature of the strings, heart-tugging guitar solo and power of the drums make this a stand out track. "Stay With Me" brings back the 80's rock flair with a dance element. There's no doubt you'll be singing along to this one in no time. The album wraps up with "In Her Smile" a relaxing, mid-tempo ballad about going home to the one you love.

Fans of all ages agree that Alimorad's music has something in it for everyone and Cornerstone accents this to a tee. Don't miss out on one of the best albums of 2010.

Track Name: What You Have
You tell me you love me I know that it’s true
But there’s something you’re hiding inside
I remember when you told me about him
How it ended before it began
And time had healed all the wounds

But you can’t let go you hold onto a part of him
It keeps you wanting to go back

I know he broke your heart
Never just the same
No one else to blame
Don’t break apart
I know how you feel
You have something real
What you have with me

You say that you feel indifferent
And that you don’t really care
So how come you can’t just move on

It hurts when you say that it doesn’t matter
We both know that that is all wrong

I know he broke your heart
Never just the same
No one else to blame
Don’t break apart
I know how you feel
You have something real
What you have with me

It could be what you’ve been searching for
But you can’t see until you’re free
So open your eyes
And come away with me

I know he broke your heart
Never just the same
No one else to blame
Don’t break apart
I know how you feel
You have something real
What you have with me
Track Name: She Is...
See the girl looking so sweet
Innocent and tenderly
I can’t believe she looks at me
The way the wind blows her brown hair the way she sings without a care
She’s everything I’d like to be

But she doesn’t even know
How she’s the star of the show

She’s the air I breathe
The smile I see
The one who comforts me
She’s the strength I need when I feel weak
She’s the one for me
Who is always right
By my side
She is

She’s always been part of my life
She gives me wings to fly so high
When she looks right in my eyes

And she is so wonderful
And she has my heart and soul


She’s the air I breathe
The smile I see
The one who comforts me
She’s the strength I need when I feel weak
She’s the one for me
Who is always right
By my side
She is

When I needed shelter from the storm
She is right where I belong
She is

She’s the air I breathe
The smile I see
The one who comforts me
She’s the strength I need when I feel weak
She’s the one for me
Who is always right
By my side
She is
Track Name: Stay With Me
Come on baby
Get closer to me
Come on baby
Don’t put me down on my knees

She looks so good when she’s dancing
The way she moves so sweet
I just wanna hold ya
What ya doing to me

Come on an stay with me
Stay with me
Come on and stay with me
Stay with me

As she stands in the moonlight
She’s sending me a smile
My knees are shaking
She says to stay for awhile

She takes a hold of my hand
And pulls me in real closely
Do you think that you love me
Oo wait and see

Come on an stay with me
Stay with me
Come on and stay with me
Stay with me

When it’s time to go I just don’t know what to do
All I know is that I wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you

Come on an stay with me
Stay with me
Come on and stay with me
Stay with me


Come on an stay with me
Stay with me
Come on and stay with me
Stay with me
Track Name: In Her Smile
Came back to town
Feeling worn out from a long day
And when I go home
It's nice to know she is waiting there

And when I see her I hold her tight
Feel her warm embrace
She gives me that warm loving feeling
When she kissed my face
Oh yeah

She won't say a word
She doesn't have to
I see the love that she has in her smile
Last year or today
Near or far away
I see the love that she has in her smile
In her smile

Every night when she says good night
It just gives me chills
It all just seems too good to be real
We don't even have to try

And when I dream it almost seems as if I'm awake
You know I can't imagine it any other way
Oh yeah

She won't say a word
She doesn't have to
I see the love that she has in her smile
Last year or today
Near or far away
I see the love that she has in her smile
In her smile

I see her waiting and I want to run to her
She's like an angel who is my entire world

She won't say a word
She doesn't have to
I see the love that she has in her smile
Last year or today
Near or far away
I see the love that she has in her smile
In her smile

She won't say a word
She doesn't have to
I see the love that she has in her smile
Last year or today
Near or far away
I see the love that she has in her smile
In her smile
