Location & Contact:
Reid Jamieson is a classic Canadian heartbreaker with an incredible voice and a magical way with melodies. Born and raised in Toronto, Reid now resides in beautiful Vancouver BC and performs regularly with CBCs Vinyl Cafe. In 2004 Reid released an alt-country gem titled The Unavoidable Truth produced by Josh Finlayson (Gord Downie, Skydiggers) featuring Sarah Harmer and Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo, Wilco). 2007 found Reid releasing a rather unintentional 50s era tribute to Elvis entitled The Presley Sessions. Initially recorded as a gift for his long time sweetheart this tender offering highlighted Reid's powerful abilities as an interpreter of classic and cult tunes, as evidenced on free cover tracks he regularly posts to his web site. 2010 brings Staring Contest, a 14 song collection of original songs featuring Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Anne Lindsay (Blue Rodeo) on violin, and fellow Vinyl Cafe bandmate John Sheard on piano. Garden gnomes, unstoppable trains and no less than three proposals (!) can be found within the lyrics of this unabashedly romantic collection. In stores and on iTunes Sept 2010.
