Biography

Early life:

Scott started playing guitar and piano at age seven. He grew up listening to his parents’ classic albums, and was influenced by artists like Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway. Inspired by singer/songwriters Simon and Garfunkel, Jamie Scott formed a duo in college and played acoustic shows in London. During this time, a dying aunt bought him a new piano. For the next three years, Jamie Scott spent his time playing records and writing music.


Music career:

According to his website, Jamie Scott never listened to popular, contemporary music while he was growing up.Jamie started his musical career by pursuing a publishing deal for music written for someone else to sing. When Jamie Scott sent his demo tape to publishers, they responded that they liked his voice and wanted Jamie to sing the songs for himself. Because of this, Jamie Scott signed a contract with Sony Music in 2002. He then teamed up with producer Toby Smith, a former keyboardist from Jamiroquai, to work on his full-length album. As he was working on this album, Jamie Scott played solo shows with only his acoustic guitar. He then played a Blues & Soul magazine tour. Following this, he performed with artists such as Carleen Anderson, Mario Winans, and Ginuwine.

Jamie Scott writes music on his guitar, and always starts with the song first. He insists that he cannot write in a format specifically to get onto the radio.

    I thought 'When Will I See Your Face Again' was going to be huge when it was released :( It's so good, it just should've been. And it's a top album as well, hope we get something new from him soon.

    Bought the album "Park Bench Theories" today, absolutely at random, without ever hearing of Jamie Scott before. Sounds really awesome. Also discuss: do you often buy CDs or downloads at random, without knowing the artist?

    The most underated artist of the last few years, in my opinion. Thanks to getting caught up in a complete mess with Sony.....hope he gets where he belongs eventually and is better for the hard route enforced on him.

    I saw them on yesterday evening in Muffathalle in Munich. They are still on Tour with A Fine Frenzy. They played about half an hour and I knew them before so I knew the songtexts, too :) It was great!!
