Swoon over Jamie Woon with your free MP3 download

By  |  0 Comments

Singer, songwriter and newly self-taught producer Jamie Woon made his name by playing his unique blend of mind-bending soulful dub-step live in his native North-East London. After placing fourth on this year’s BBC Sound Of 2011 poll, and having hundreds and hundreds of gigs under his belt - from endless spots in front of the microphone with just his guitar, an effects box and that unmistakable voice; to supporting Amy Winehouse – he’s fit a lot into his live career well before his debut LP ‘Mirrorwriting’ drops on May 6th.

He’s played in a full band with dub-step DJ and producer Reso on drums; curated tents at early editions of The Secret Garden; played Glastonbury; and taken stage at Sonar. You might say it’s in his blood: his mother is Scottish folk legend Mae McKenna, a lady who did session vocals for a massive list of stars including Björk and Michael Jackson (during which time, Woon was playing with Sticklebricks in the corner).

Woon, 27, has made a sonic step forward from the atmospheric, multi-layered Loop Station vocals that made his name. The new sound, premiered on his Spring 2010 tour with La Roux is bigger and heavier, fusing his future pop songs with ’80s reverb, beats and bass, showcased on the download track ‘Blue Truth’.
