Call this a Celebration…Jamie Woon is back!!!

Jamie Woon is back after four long years (rejoice!!!) However, during those four quiet years, Woon didn’t shy away from music altogether. In 2013 he provided the vocals for Disclosure’s track “January” which I must say is a favourite of mine 🙂 Although there is a lot of buzz surrounding the release of his second album, it was the enchanting and dreamy sound of his debut, “Mirrorwriting” that first caught my attention. The stand-out tracks from this album are definitely “Spirits”, “Lady Luck” and the haunting “Night Air.”

I had no idea he was making a comeback until Annie Mac announced it on her BBC Radio 1 show and I was like YES finally. The news of his return got me really excited, especially after hearing the lead single “Sharpness” which is a slice of funk.  On new album, “Making Time” Woon has collaborated with Willy Mason for the song “Celebration” which seems to get better and better, the more times you listen to it.

When Jamie Woon sings, I am blown away by his impeccable vocals. I can’t imagine he has ever had a wobbly performance or sang out of tune [he is that GOOD]. His songs have a minimalistic sound which I think adds to the chilled-out and soulful RnB he wants to create. And with a voice as brilliant as his, what more could you ask for?

New music from Jamie Woon is definitely a celebration and I hope to catch him at one of his live shows in the new year (fingers crossed).

Watch Jamie Woon perform “Spirits” with just a loop pedal…SUPERB!!!
