"Gorgeous, sun-struck acoustic soul" - Globe & Mail. Reid Jamieson is a classic Canadian heartbreaker with an incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics and magical way with melodies, as well as a regular performer on CBC's Vinyl Cafe. In 2004 Reid independently released an alt-country gem titled THE UNAVOIDABLE TRUTH to critical acclaim. Self-penned and produced it featured guest appearances from Sarah Harmer and Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo, Wilco). 2007 found Reid releasing a rather unintentional 50s era tribute to Elvis entitled THE PRESLEY SESSIONS highlighting Reid's powerful abilities as an interpreter of classic & cult tunes. 2011 and his new all original album STARING CONTEST features Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Anne Lindsay (Blue Rodeo) and Vinyl Cafe bandmate John Sheard (Dan Hill, The Henrys). Garden gnomes, unstoppable trains and no less than 3 proposals (!) can be found in the lyrics of this unabashedly romantic collection. File w/ Neil Finn and Jeff Buckley.
