Jamie Moore is an accomplished guitarist who has performed throughout the world in a wide variety of settings including television, radio, West End theatre, touring stage productions, summer seasons, recording studios, concert halls and cabaret. His programme will include original guitar pieces from his recordings, some familiar pieces by well-known classical guitar composers (see Classical Events), a bit from Brazil and a few of his favourite standards.
Jamie holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music, Boston; a Master of Music degree from the University of Alberta and has undertaken further post graduate studies at Nottingham University. He is a very versatile guitarist, composer and seasoned performer in a variety of styles – from classical and jazz to improvisation and music theatre. Jamie has recorded three CDs of original music (Beachkeys, Minor Monday and Sea Changes), plus a CD entitled In A Chord with guitarist Dave Reay. His latest album, launched with a concert tour in November 2016, features CUBE – a chamber jazz quartet with clarinet, vibraphone, guitar and bass. He has also co-written a musical, Back To Back By Bacharach celebrating the life of Burt Bacharach, and collaborated on projects with The Mosaic Cat.
- “Jamie Moore… A night of real class.” (The Stage)
- “the smooth guitarist/vocalist from Canada whose melodic style and selective eclecticism (jazz, latin and classical) recalls Lee Ritenour.” (Jack Massarik, London Evening Standard)
- “Jamie Moore knows how to knock out a good tune. The jazz player can turn his hand to latin, folk, and classical.” (Ross Crawford, City Life, MetroNews)
- “Jamie Moore’s recent Minor Monday album takes the listener on a curious journey. It’s hard to pin down this Canadian’s style with one sweeping gesture, his music blurring genre lines.” (Martin Longley, Jazz Critic, Birmingham Post)
- “He’s a nimble guitarist, favouring an acoustic model, raiding phrases from jazz, flamenco, blues and country, luxuriating in a singing tone that highlights the organic snap of each string.” (Post Review, Birmingham Post)
