Biography

“Gorgeous, sun-struck acoustic soul” - Globe & Mail
Vancouver’s Reid Jamieson is starting to become known for his incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics and a magical way with melodies. He can be heard with some regularity on CBC’s Vinyl Cafe, and just won the grand prize for folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Mar 2012). A gifted interpreter of classic and cult tunes, Reid is also a inspired songwriter whose latest CD of all original music Staring Contest features guests Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Anne Lindsay (Blue Rodeo) and John Sheard (Vinyl Cafe, Dan Hill). Garden gnomes, unstoppable trains and no less than three proposals (!) can be found within the lyrics of this unabashedly romantic collection. Well known for his compelling covers and impressive guitar style, don’t miss one of his rare live performances. For fans of Neil Finn, Jeff Buckley, Roy Orbison & Harry Nilsson.

    I met him once in a bookstore in Toronto, had a great conversation with him and bought "Cowlick Bravado" — the way that album starts is amazing.

    I don't know how "Turn On A Dime" ended up on my iPod, but I'm glad it did. The song is brilliant. I fell in love with it after just one listen and am now going to track down more by this artist to listen too.
