Jamie Thomas had his musical epiphany not at the proverbial crossroads but a schoolyard in Astoria, Queens, where the music of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and others touched his soul and inspired him to play music as well as write songs. He honed his skills as a performer playing New York clubs in a band before striking out on his own, making his bones as a solo act in the ground zero of the American folk movement, Greenwich Village................. He later headed south of Mason-Dixon line spending time in Nashville before landing in Austin, Tx for several years. Now residing in West Hollywood, Jamie continues to perform his own steeped-in-the-tradition originals with his reinterpretations of other numbers from the great real American music songbook that span from its origins to today. Jamie Thomas' song "She's" will be heard in an upcoming indie film and his track "Wild as the Fire" is slated to be heard in an upcoming online television series.
