Jamie Barnes has been writing and performing for years across Southern Ontario with the NYC Band, Ripoff Trio and many others.
Picking up the guitar over a decade ago, it was a desire to find community and connection that inspired and propelled his musical journey.
Wading deep into pop hooks, contemporary roots rock, modern gospel, bluegrass and the soul of 1960’s & ‘70’s British R&B, the result is a diverse sound that questions as much as it celebrates, struggles equal to the wonder, and draws elements from artists like Ron Sexsmith, John Mayer, and The Band.
Listeners to this musical journey often remark, that a sense of something farther reaching is being responded to. That Jamie is heeding a call by immersing himself in exploration; playing for diverse audiences, each on their own journey.
Jamie’s music has provided a way to connect to something deeply felt but often unnamed in each of us. The songs recall the details and sharpen the rough-hewn sketches of the tows and currents in our hearts, as we return to the moments that held us rapt.
His album "Wilderness" won a Hamilton Music Award for "Best Religious Recording" in 2011, but he's not stopped there...
In 2013, Jamie released his follow-up EP titled "Coming Home."
Most recently, Jamie has been working on a multi-year, multi-volume Christmas project. "Christmas, Vol. 4" is available now (and Vol. 1-3, too!).
