BioJamie's newest album, Better Than Chocolate is out now! She doesn't check MySpace very often - please visit www.jamieanderson.com or http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=557300426 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Touring nationally since the eighties, singer-songwriter-parking lot attendant Jamie Anderson has played her warm and witty songs in hundreds of coffeehouses, concert halls, colleges and festivals. Good Morning America, the Dr. Demento radio show, Car Talk, and stations all over the world have featured her music. She's a confused folk singer who dabbles in several genres - from the acoustic ballad "Beautiful" (about body image) to the fun bluegrass romp of "Felon" (her less-than-kind look at weird North Carolina laws). While she often performs solo she can also be found with her band Broad Street ('cause, uh, they're all broads). When she's not touring, she's taught songwriting and other classes at Duke University, arts centers and at festivals all over the US. With eight albums under her belt Jamie loves being a full time musician, so she doesn’t really park cars, but her mama said she should have something to fall back on. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ CDs at www.cdbaby.com/jamieanderson .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..
InfluencesMeg Christian, Joan Armatrading, Steve Goodman, Kara Barnard, Holly Near, Patty Larkin, Cheryl Wheeler, Bonnie Raitt, Vicki Randle, Carole King, Dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell, and my dad.
Sounds LikeCompared to Joni Mitchell but only because some writers can't think of any other female singer-songwriter. A bit like Christine Lavin 'cause I do some funny tunes and a little like Patty Larkin because I use a lot of open tunings and heck, just listen and form your own opinion.
