Raised in the Apple Isle, Tasmania, Jamie Lindsay is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer and music producer who has been living and working in Sydney since 2001. He released his first music E.P when he was 18 and went on to become a top 10 finalist at the prestigious StarMaker talent quest at the Tamworth County Music Festival in 1997/98. Throughout his 20+ year career, Jamie has been involved in various other projects in genres such as pop, blues and hard rock, however, he’s back to his country music roots with his latest self-produced release title ‘Eleven’.
We caught up with Jamie Lindsay to find out what songs she’s listening to for this week’s Front Deck Boom Box.
Jamie Lindsay – Sirius
My song about my dog who passed away a couple of years ago still hits me hard when I hear it. And now that the albums been released and that’s been the new single, I’ve had to talk about it and listen to it a lot which has definitely dug up some emotions.
Catherine Britt – Swinging Door
When I hear this come on the radio, I turn it up. I’m a big fan of Catherine’s writing and her voice is amazing. I think she is the real deal and this song is cleverly written.
The Wolfe Brothers – No Brakes
These guys are such a great talent and, like myself, are also from Tassie. They write great country songs and this song is fine example of that. I also love Matt Fell’s production on this. He is one of my favorite producers so it’s a win-win.
Nieko – Kithnos Bay
Nieko is a local central coast artist who writes and releases a kind of surf folk style of music. I recorded and produced his latest EP and his song Kithnos Bay is a great sea shanty of a song. Goes down well with some rum!
Troy Cassar-Daley – Beyond the Dancing
Troy has just re-released this album 25 years after it was first released. I played this to death when I first bought the CD in the late 90’s and it really inspired a lot of my earlier song writing.
I’ve been listening to it again lately and it’s as good now as it was back then. Hats off to you Troy!
