Jamie Woon returns four years after the release of his critically acclaimed debut new album. In his work the British artist mostly mixes the sounds of R & B, soul and electronica, continuing to be innovative in this blend, but with more emphasis on musical instruments. The result is a record full of intimacy and secrets revealed with each listen. Live he will be able to convince Slovak fans on 19 April at the Ateliér Babylon.
REPRESENTATIVE OF BRITISH SCHOOLS
The graduate from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology, where Amy Winehouse, Adele and Kate Nash also studied, managed to gain public awareness through the BBC Sound survey of 2011. That means a quality guarantee for European music. Each year representatives of the British music scene create a ranking of the most exciting talents in a given year. Five years ago, British critics liked Jamie Woon so much that he ended up in fourth place.
The singer, songwriter and producer from the UK further made himself known to the world by releasing his debut Mirrorwriting, from which listeners mainly know the single “Night Air”, “Lady Luck” or “Shoulda”. The debut was formed simultaneously with various smaller sub-genres, and hence his “post-dubstep” musical designation. He also participated on the recording of the Seattle electronic duo Disclosure, namely the “January” composition. Artistically he also got together with the formations of Portico and Darkstar.
