Chris Jamison, Ross resident, third place winner in the 2014 season of NBC's “The Voice,” and, most recently, a new member of WBZZ-FM, 100.7 Star radio's on-air staff, will be the first artist to sign with a new Pittsburgh record label on Sept. 15.

According to a release, Jamison will sign with The Vault Records, newly opened in Neville Island by owner and president Bob McCutcheon.

Jamison's signature sound blends pop and blue-eyed soul, which he defines with his own energetic swagger and style.

“It's pop, but it's got more soul and meaning behind it,” Jamison says in the release. “To me, it's important not to simply sing a song, but to pour as much emotion into it as I can and really connect. It's what I do.”

“We are thrilled to have Chris as our debut artist at The Vault Records,” says McCutcheon in the release.

“His talent is undeniable and his music appeals to a wide audience, as demonstrated by his success on ‘The Voice.' His next record will showcase who Chris really is as an artist,” McCutcheon says. “As a label, that's our focus — to let the artist's personality and passion take center stage, full collaboration with the artist rather than trying to shape them into something we want,” he says.

The Vault Records, described as an artist-friendly studio and community for singers, songwriters and musicians, is housed in a recently opened state-of-the-art recording studio.

A long-time music producer, McCutcheon hopes the studio “will play a key role in developing and supporting the artistic community in Pittsburgh and beyond.”
