Allan Scott-Douglas does an amazing job as Jamie! The lyrics are unique and yet true to the spirit of the story.

Having heard it many times now, I can confidentally recommend it to fellow fans! What a great new dimension for a story so well loved.

The writer/composer was in Claire's head when he wrote this song."I Am Ready" by Allan (Jamie) is probaly my next favorite song. It is very catchy and perfect for the scene. Allan's voice is amazing.*Say the Words" is hauntingly beautiful. Chills my friends. Chills!!I could review all the songs but seriously, if you are fan of Outlander, you have to have this...
