Jamie has spent the majority of his life singing and writing songs. Jamie grew up between Alabama and Mississippi where he was either listening to his Grandpa Herman play guitar or fiddle around the wood stove in the back room of their old general store home place or watching his mother and dad sing in church. Jamie eventually became a part of those old gospel style camp meetings where he started out playing a snare and high-hat with Pastor Ray Thompson. Jamie would soon get his first guitar at age 13 from Pastor Ray and take his first crack at learning to play an electric guitar. The skills he learned early in life carried him on to Nashville at the age of 23. Where he honed his singing and guitar skills to the degree of actually becoming a working musician. Jamie toured the casino and club circuit for many years and shared a stage with greats like Steve Cropper of The Blues Brothers Band, Blind Mississippi Morris, Jerry Waddell, Ryan Larkins from CMT Can You Duet, Jennie C Riley, and Mark Collie. Jamie moved back to the Alabama Gulf Coast in 2015 and is looking to build on the music career he started in Tennessee. If you have an opportunity to see him perform you will not be disappointed. Jamie's songs are written with heart felt lyrics, coming from true life experiences, and filled with pure raw emotion.
You could be sitting in the back of any club or venue, immersed in your own personal conversation with friends or watching whatever might be on one of 10 television screens. Once her voice came through the P.A. your attention would be immediately drawn to the stage. However she is not at all limited to any one genre, as shows her love of different styles of music by performing and writing songs that range from country to blues, R&B and harder rock. In 2005 she packed up her guitar and left the Pacific Northwest for Music City. Since moving to Nashville she has been keeping busy networking, playing various gigs and songwriter's rounds and recording. Never resting on her laurels so to speak, she has entered the world of writing for movies both Made for T.V. and the Big Screen. Humble and fun is her attitude, which can be rare among people with her talents, its entertainment not to be missed.
