CANADA’S BEST KEPT SECRET: Now performing as an acoustic duo with his long-time songwriting partner and saucy wife Carolyn Victoria Mill, Reid Jamieson and the missus are committed to making music that matters and moves us. Known for his compelling vocal performances, and her therapeutic lyrics, Reid has appeared regularly on CBC’s Vinyl Cafe with Stuart McLean, and has recorded with Cowboy Junkies, Sarah Harmer and members of Blue Rodeo and Be Good Tanyas. Along with winning the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (folk), this creative couple wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival by winning 1st prize in the Pickin' a Folk Star Contest. Their latest release is a luminous tribute to Leonard Cohen. Turning the master into the muse with seven compelling covers plus the haunting title track - an original open letter to the man himself. ‘Dear Leonard: The Cohen Collection’ features Anne Lindsay (Jim Cuddy, James Taylor, Led Zeppelin) on burning violin.. This homespun homage follows up Reid’s much-loved tribute to the 50s era greats ‘The Presley Sessions Revisited’, and his unusual collection of winter-themed holiday music ‘Songs For A Winter’s Night’.. Reid and CVM are currently working on not one, but two new all original records. The first to be recorded in Ireland next spring with Kieran Kennedy (Maria Doyle Kennedy), the other a dark but danceable song cycle on the causes of homelessness. You won’t want to miss what they do next...
"After Reid appeared on the Vinyl Cafe we received tremendous feedback from our audience. He stole the show...He blew me away." Stuart McLean - CBC Vinyl Café
"I don’t know how I missed it, but somewhere between the release of his debut CD and what could be mistaken for a simple holiday album Reid Jamieson has become the greatest Canadian pop singer ever” - NoDepression
