"Gorgeous, sun-struck acoustic soul" - Globe & Mail

Latest release: DEAR LEONARD: The Cohen Collection ~ "Sublime" - Folk Roots/Folk Branches 

Vancouver Canada’s Reid Jamieson is a prolific songbird who loves to sing. Known for his compelling vocal performances and therapeutic lyrics, Reid has appeared regularly on the popular public radio show Vinyl Cafe with Stuart McLean, and has recorded with Cowboy Junkies, Sarah Harmer and members of Blue Rodeo and Be Good Tanyas. Alongside his award winning original music, Reid recently released two tasty tributes: The Presley Sessions Revisited, a musical love letter to the 50s era greats; and his latest, a luminous homage to the master of song Leonard Cohen titled DEAR LEONARD: The Cohen Collection. Reid turns the master into the muse with seven compelling covers plus the haunting title track, an original open letter to the man himself. Featuring frequent collaborator Anne Lindsay (Jim Cuddy, Jmes Taylor, Led Zeppelin) on burning violin. Performing as an acoustic duo with his long-time songwriting partner and saucy wife, Carolyn Victoria Mill, they are committed to making music that matters. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch them live!

PRESS:

 "Prepare to be surprised" - Vancouver Province

“Arresting... dazzling voice” - Toronto Sun

"After Reid appeared on the Vinyl Cafe we received tremendous feedback from our audience. He stole the show...He blew me away." Stuart McLean - CBC Vinyl Cafe

"I don’t know how I missed it, but somewhere between the release of his debut CD and what could be mistaken for a simple holiday album Reid Jamieson has become the greatest Canadian pop singer ever” - NoDepression

 “Jamieson has a voice to bring the songs to life, in a manner that is both befitting of the weight of this cannon and to bring something new to the party. His choices are admirable, and brave, but you can be when you are this fine. It is an elegant, considered, beautiful reimagining of some real pearls. – Americana UK

"Their overall approach and the recordings I’ve heard literally scream authenticity and devotion to what suits their rich voices so well.... Magical, and modern, albeit with a retro country feel that evokes other musical couples – Johnny & June, or Tammy & George. " Calgary Herald.
