~ “Gorgeous, sun-struck acoustic soul" - Globe & Mail
Vancouver Canada's Reid Jamieson shines his light with an incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics, and magical way with melodies. A regular on the popular public radio radio show Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (folk), he has recorded with Cowboy Junkies, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Sarah Harmer and various members of Blue Rodeo. Reid can often be found performing as an entertaining duo with his saucy wife and songwriting partner Carolyn Mill. Along with the Lennon win, this creative couple wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival by winning 1st prize in the Pickin' a Folk Star Contest. They just released their first album singing together titled Juniper’s Kitchen - it’s a little Johnny & June meets Fleetwood Mac - and all about the songs. Known for his compelling covers of everything from Mary Margaret O'Hara to A-ha, Reid now presents his latest: The Presley Sessions Revisited a tribute to the 50s era greats, including songs made popular by Elvis, The Platters and Roy Orbison. A new all original album is in the works, and in the meantime, a collection of Leonard Cohen will be ready for the spring.
