In a career spanning 2 decades, Jamie has been honing his craft and bringing music to the the people across the globe. From humble beginnings in Carlow, Ireland, he began his journey busking on the streets of Ireland before rambling further afield to seek challenge and progress. Influenced in equal parts by the street and classic contemporary songwriters, the music slowly took on it's now signature sound of Folk-Funk-Soul. Mixing sounds and ideas from various artistic disciplines, the songs which have come to life are both soundtrack and reverie, monologue and sing along. Through embracing the spontaneous and crafted, live performances have become explorations and experiments in ways to further draw the audience into the ever expanding universe of Jamie's writings.

In this place, The Number Nein provide a sonic tableau into which Jamie inserts himself in order to create and recreate, destroy and rebuild his characters, songs and machinations. Drifters on the run, prodigal sons returning home, spurned lotharios, disillusioned dreamers and dancer infatuated protagonists populate this musical world, brought to life with melodies derived from blues, folk, eastern spirituality and Irish traditions. Jesus and Rumi dance through and beyond the songs, laughing, living and reborn again and again with each performance.
