Greetings from Jamie Wayz
My Sister and I have Decided After 4 years of playing touring together that we should maybe try our hand solo so although it is a big change for us both we look forward to exploring our individual talents. We have both toured for many years as solo acts so it's really going back and finishing what we started years ago. This page will keep you updated on Jamie Wayz from here on in!!!
Jamie Wayz is based in Nashville TN. USA.
Jamie Calls her style “Tropical Country”--imagine Jimmy Buffett & George Strait going for a ride,
picking up Maranda Lambert & Bonnie Raitt for a party on the beach....that's us!
As the publisher of Strum/Magazine puts it “these girls are a fun, &energetic &, it's always great to have them involved in one of our shows”
Our new CD, “Boots To Beaches” is now out and being distributed by iTunes in the U.S., Australia, Mexico, Europe & the United Kingdom. It is also available on CD Baby & Amazon.com for hard copy (in the USA) or download purchase (everywhere!)
We are already back in the studio working on a second CD, an acoustic version of Jamie's first solo CD (originally done in 2008) “Beaches, Boys, And Bars...Live” We hope to have it out in late spring/early summer. A new tour is also in the works.
Jamie has been playing guitar & singing in classic country bands in places from California to Florida to Michigan since the age of eighteen (weddings, bars, pubs, clubs, dives, and anything in between..lol) including, (a real highlight!) opening for Vince Gill in Michigan (WOW).
Since 2008 she's been writing and performing original music which has given her the opportunity to share more of her own style/heart. ( A cross between Tropical, Country, and Classic Rock)
Jamie was born in Michigan, at the age of 12 she starteds playing for the local church youth group, at 15 she was traveling the midwest performing in a gospel group known as the Potter Clay.She quickly found her love for Country music and her favorite artist was Jimmy Buffet! Jamie Started playing in Country Bands as soon as she could get into the clubs(18) She started writing her own songs, winning a state wide first place for folk music with her self penned song Confusion. She Continues to write and perform based in Nashville TN, She records for herself and other songwriters and continues to perform 3-4 times every week. A new tour is in the making and she has just purchased a bus!
With a lively stage show & a variety of musical styles, (a bit of everything from Tropical Country to Bluesy Rock) trading off between a mix of beach songs to classic country,New Country and a bit of rock and roll Jamie takes you from flip-flops & rum drinks on the beach, to boots & beers on the bar-room floor....it's obvious she loves what she is doing & that sharing the fun with the audience means a lot to her.
So grab your shakers (or your spurs!) come on out , share a smile & a song!!
We look forward to meeting you all, whether it's on the beaches of Australia, a pub in Europe, or a club in Nashville, TN, live or just on the radio, and we hope that some of our music brings a smile to your face & a memory to touch your heart!
Take Care Y'all!!
