Biography

Hearing Jamie Coon’s music for the first time, you immediately know that you’re listening to something different. Imagine a touch of Natalie Merchant’s upbeat pop and some Nora Jones’ vibe—mixed in with a nod to all the soul greats—and you get an idea of what she’s about. However, there are other currents running deeper throughout her songs: a Native American raised in Oklahoma, Jamie’s songs have a spiritual, wide-open feeling that flows within. Jamie also incorporates a wide variety of instrumentation and styles, seamlessly fusing stripped-down acoustics, standard pop/rock instrumentation, electronic elements, drum loops, and more. It all works so well because of Jamie’s musical vision, passionate voice and solid soul roots.

Jamie’s music has also been enjoying national exposure. Two of her songs appeared on the soundtrack of the indie comedy Long Term Relationship. Her single, “Breathe” is heavily-featured in Deceit, starring Joe Pantoliano and Jon Abrahams. She recently signed an agreement with Riptide Music, a company placing music in national TV shows and films; her single “Waiting” was featured in an episode of CBS’s Ghost Whisperer, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. This year, she performed to sold-out audiences at the Smithsonian National Museum of American Indian Summer Music Festival, and the Kennedy Center, both in Washington, DC.

Industry accolades are pouring in, too: Jamie received a nomination for Best Female Artist at the First Annual Southern California Music Awards (’06), and won the 2007 “Best Out of County” from the Orange County Music Awards. She was voted 2007’s “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” by the Payne County Line/Oklahoma Music Awards and was nominated for both “Best New Artist” and “Best Pop Recording” in ’07’s Native American Music Awards. In 2008, she has already won “Female Vocalist of the Year,” and her song “Waiting” won “Single of the Year” at Payne County. At the 2008 Native E Music Awards, she won “Mainstream Song of the Year” awards for “Waiting” and “Breathe.”

Jamie and her band are currently in Los Angeles writing material for her upcoming album, and will continue to tour across the West Coast and nationally.
