Debut Album out soon!!
For want of a better term, Jamie Beau is an Alt-Folk artist with elements of singer/songwriter. At the core of what he does are intense, strong vocals and eclectic guitar tones. His sound is often described as a blend of big vocals with melodic, almost aggressive finger-style percussive guitar, bound within simple and beautiful songs. Juxtaposition features in his work both musically and lyrically. “I’m a big believer that live performance should not be a carbon copy of recordings” says Jamie.
Before turning to folk and world music, he was the front man of a thrash metal band. Upon parting ways with that band, Jamie essentially quit music for a time, until one fateful day when he witnessed Thomas Leeb performing and epiphany hit! Since then Jamie has moved from strength to strength, setting a footing as one to watch in the UK acoustic scene with recent singles & the 2013 debut release “The Shedding Skin EP”. His now eagerly awaited debut album is set to be released late 2015.
Jamie is a regular at many UK summer festivals and coupled with a busy touring schedule, he’s one hard working performer.
Sound and influence:
Put simply, Jamie makes music with various wooden boxes and a mouth. Describing his music, Jamie says “I play a guitar, stomp pedal, cajon, cuatro de Puerto Rico, drums, percussion…. I’m always looking for new and unusual sounds. If you can bang it and twang it, I’ll have a good go at playing it! Then I make my gums flap a bit. Roots wise, I grew up (like most do) listening to what their parents did, so I’m really inspired by 70′s soul and rock singers and of course a range of other stuff too like Isbells, First Aid Kit, Soundgarden, Jeff Buckley, John Grant, Ben Howard, Smashing Pumpkins, John Butler Trio and the like.”
