Biography

“A seductive mix of Motown R&B, Nashville Americana and Aussie rocker.” - Devon Jackson (Santa Fean Magazine)

For as long as she can remember, Jamie Rumley heard her parents playing the music of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and The Rolling Stones around their home in the small community of West St. Paul, MB. Before long she was singing in Church and School choirs and later playing the bass guitar, piano and alto saxophone (which earned her several awards at a young age). But her inspiration to pick up the guitar and begin penning her own music came from listening to artists like Sheryl Crow, Janis Joplin and The Cranberries.

She has come a long way since those choir days. After completing an Audio Engineering Program in 2002, Rumley wrote, recorded and produced her debut album Out of the Ordinary. The first single, “Anywhere But Here,” is still a fan favourite and ended up being featured on her next project, which did not arrive until several years later.

After a long hiatus from music making, she found her way back to her roots in 2008 and recorded her follow-up album: an EP entitled Renovations. Produced by Adam Halstrom (Pollution Lake Sound) and featuring six songs which could all be categorized in different genres, the project ties together surprisingly well and was received with open arms in Canada and all over Europe. After the release of Renovations came a spring “Compilation Tour” of Western Canada with fellow Winnipegger, Lindsey White, who also contributed lead guitar to the project.
