Jamie Anderson

“… a barrel of laughs and a whole bunch of talent.” – Amanda Putz, CBC Radio
“As a writer, Jamie takes the archetypical forms of folk music and story telling and turns them on their heads! A fresh (in every sense) and original artist.” — Catie Curtis

Singer-songwriter-parking lot attendant Jamie Anderson has played her unique original songs in hundreds of venues in four countries including forty-seven US states.  Her eleven recordings include the 2019 release The Truth Appears.

Jamie started releasing albums in the late eighties, selling thousands of albums at a time before YouTube and iTunes.

Laughter is a big part of Jamie’s live performance. Her offbeat song intros and stories help keep the performance fun, but don’t be surprised when she delves into more serious issues. She’s emceed at many events and she can hula hoop while playing the ukulele. When Jamie isn’t touring, she’s taught music classes at Duke University, arts centers, festivals, and her studio. One of her guitar instructional videos has gone viral, with over 400,000 views. See it here.

Jamie’s memoir, Drive All Night, (which she started at The Highlands Inn) was published in 2014. Her second book, An Army of Lovers: Women’s Music of the Seventies and Eighties, will be out on Bella Books in the fall of 2019. Her extensive writing credits include book chapters, articles and CD reviews in Acoustic Guitar, Curve, SingOut! and more.
