The Sounds: Jamie Woon Pushes Acoustic Soul Music Into the Electronic Age


Jamie Woon (born March 29, 1983) is a British singer, songwriter and producer signed to Polydor who gained widespread acclaim in 2010 for his single Night Air, following his earlier independent release, Wayfaring Stranger Ep. Woon’s sound and style is presently described as soul inflected vocals backed by samplers and programming, or a single guitar track. He describes his music as “… R&B, it’s groove-based vocal-led music …”. On 4 January 2011, the BBC announced that Woon had been placed fourth in the BBC’s Sound of 2011 poll. There has been some comparison of him to other boundary stretching artist like James Blake, Alex Clare, The Weeknd or even  Stateless but  Jamie Woon is infects the music with his own brand of soulful singing that will leave you wanting more. For some reason this track “Echoes” is in heavy rotation on my playlist. I think the beat is what gets me. The heavy thump combined with the falsetto makes this a killer song. Get familiar with Jamie Woon.
