Singer-songwriter-parking lot attendant sings tongue-in-cheek songs about klepto mother-in-laws, wanting to marry Rachel Maddow, as well as serious tunes on guitar, ukulele, and mandolin. She’ll try not to brag about living in Canada.
Jamie Anderson has played her unique original songs in hundreds of venues in four countries. She’s a multi-instrumentalist with twelve recordings including the recently released EP Songs from Home, with music written during the pandemic; she and her engineer play all the instruments. Songs range from the tongue-in-cheek “Marry Me,” about her efforts to lure Rachel Maddow to Canada (Free health care! Milk in bags!) to fits of seriousness like “From Six Feet Away” (“You’re still beautiful, from six feet away”). She shows you why you should never break up with a songwriter in “I Miss the Dog (More Than I Miss You)”. “Black and White” is a serious and thoughtful jazz number about growing older.
Her dad was a country musician, a painful thing for a teenager who would rather listen to Carole King, but it did mean there were always guitars lying around the house. In high school, she memorized every chord in a Mel Bay songbook. Jamie did her first tour in 1987 because she needed to earn gas money to get to a music festival. She’s been collecting tiny motel soaps ever since.
