The Early Years

Born in Philadelphia, Pa, this fresh singer of countryish songs hasn't always been country. Over a
ten year period she sang with mostly rock and roll bands. Having a dramatic air to her
personality often times Jamie got cast in musicals and so drama became another passion of
hers. Later she atteneded HB drama school in New York City with a music interpretation class
that included Bette Midler and Barry Manilow.

Jamie say her two favorite infuences are her children Todd who is in Medical School at New York
University and Jessi who is in public health at George Washington University updates to follow.
Her recording career began with the release of her song Love At A Distance by Stargems which
used to exist where Curb Records currently resides at 43 Music Square East.

With a full out radio promotion headed by her still family of music friends Gary Bradshaw and James Williams the song became a Number 1 Independent song on CashBox, Indie Tracker, and a few other Indie
related charts. This brought Jamie to Nashville and that started her true love afair with country
music that continues to today.

Jamie is a staunch supporter and a twenty year coordinator of the Nashville Songwriter's
Association International. Each year Jamie gives a scholarship or two to Tin Pan South to an up
and coming singer songwriter aspiring to break into the music business.

Staying focused and holding onto your dreams are a reaccuring theme in Jamie's songs and
conversation. Her favorite phrase is a quote by Kermit the Frog "Life is a movie, write your own ending."
