A fresh 26-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fanbase, artist Jamie Kent’s future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Ray Lamontagne and Amos Lee as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bruce Springsteen and Ray Charles, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Since the release of his debut album “Neoteny,” the singer-songwriter is currently collaborating with his band, Jamie Kent & The Options, to cultivate a sound with a strong folk rock, americana, and funk influence. In the past year they have toured extensively across the US, playing over 200 shows throughout 40 states, including multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Additionally, they have received international radio play on over 120 stations (including BBC Radio), and recently signed licensing agreements with MTV, VH1, Bravo, and The Discovery Network! In October 2012 Jamie was accepted in ASCAP’s 2012 Lester Sill Songwriting Workshop where he spent a month working with some of the best writers in the business writing material for his next album (due out in 2013), and other prominent artists in the industry. Most recently, their single “Changes” was named the #5 song of 2012 by 93.9 The River, one of the most influential AAA Radio Stations in the country.
