When Jamie Lynn Vessels takes the stage, this 6 ft. tall brunette commands attention. No matter what your musical taste, her voice and presence will capture you. Jamie is soulful, bluesy, and a lot of rock 'n' roll.
Originally from Raleigh, NC, Jamie graduated with a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice and Criminology with a certificate in Forensic Criminology from the University of Massachusetts - Lowell, and an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Forensics from Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.
Jamie soon felt a calling to another way of life. She traveled to Louisiana from her home town in North Carolina and decided to explore her lifelong musical passion.
With an unusual start, this newcomer exploded onto the music scene in late 2012 with rave reviews at open mics and acoustic shows. She officially began her career at the start of 2013 by jumping feet-first into the studio to record 15 of her original songs with world-class musicians and a top-notch production crew.
Jamie's ability to weave beautiful stories through her intricate lyrics and sweet, folksy strings stems from her own life experiences as well as everyday human observation. We all strive for the same out of this life: to be loved, to be healed, and to have some fun along the way. Jamie's music is exactly that--a reflection of human nature, its resilience and its celebrations.
Jamie released her first EP on March 8th, 2013 and first full-length album, "Home," on May 24th, 2013. Her new independent record is scheduled for release in early 2018.
She has made New Orleans her new home, and has settled nicely into the local scene playing a refreshing and intoxicating mix of blues and rock 'n' roll.
