Jamie-Lee Dimes is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist artist with a global perspective - one that comes from her spending time living in Australia, New York City, The California Desert and Mexico, earning her a coveted slot as an official artist for SXSW 2020.
Last year, Jamie-Lee wrote and released two new tunes with videos “Waste of Time” and “Hide in my Head.” which saw her touring extensively throughout North American and Australia. With an official album in the works, she calls making her new music “like ripping off a band aid... at this pivotal time in society and history, speaking about these events and truths is what music is all about.” Her forthcoming album produced by Tim Maxwell (Domestic La La / Unified / LOSER) is a collection of hypnotic nostalgia. The first single “Release Me” and forthcoming single “Virginia,” both inspired by Jamie-Lee’s social awakening spurred by living on the east coast after the 2016 elections.
Look for Jamie-Lee to perform at SXSW in Austin this year, and then launch her own U.S. and world concert dates in New York and beyond.
