REID JAMIESON (Duo)
"Gorgeous, sun-struck acoustic soul" - Globe & Mail
"Prepare to be surprised" - Vancouver Province
Vancouvers Reid Jamieson returns with his most daring record yet. The new all original album was recorded in Schull, Co. Cork Ireland with producer Kieran Kennedy (Maria Doyle Kennedy). Titled Me Daza which is Cork slang for most excellent tho the direct translation is Im dying - but arent we all? There is nothing traditional about this record, or this dynamic duo. Mature themes range from loving a woman during and after The Change, to Irelands abortion referendum, to coping with mental illness call it a soundtrack for the second act. Together 17 years, songwriters Reid and Carolyn have a somewhat Bernie Taupin/Elton John relationship, however, with a woman often writing the lyrics to be sung by this gifted male vocalist. They wrote each song together, except Dont Go Down by the late great Fergus OFarrell (Interference) and Glen Hansard (Swell Season, The Frames). Fergus vocals appear posthumously as he passed away (duo to complications of Muscular Distrophy) before he was able to properly release the track himself. And it was Irish Canadian legend Mary Margaret OHara who introduced artist and producer at a Toronto concert where she had joined Reids band on stage for the night. A friendship was struck, much magic ensued.
Reid and the missus are a vocal powerhouse committed to making music that moves us. Known for his regular appearances on Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean, to recording with Cowboy Junkies, he shines his light with compelling originals and killer covers of everything from 50s era gold to their latest tribute to Leonard Cohen. A uniquely compelling acoustic duo live, and a classic introvert / extrovert combo, Reid performs with his saucy wife and long-time song-writing partner Carolyn Victoria Mill,with whom he won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. Shows coming up in BC, WA, CA, ON, and eventually Ireland and the UK, of course. You wont want to miss what they do next!
