"... solid songwriting and engaging stage presence." - Billboard
"For me, folk music tells a story about folks, simple truth-telling and magical mythology that invites the listener to lean in to the larger circle of life. Jamie Anderson is in that circle and she is singing some wonderful songs." - Holly Near
Touring nationally since 1987, Jamie Anderson is known for a voice as smooth as Shawn Colvin and a sense of humor as wacko as Christine Lavin. She's entertained in hundreds of coffeehouses, concert halls, colleges and festivals all over the US including the main stage at the National Women's Music Festival and the Kerrville Folk Festival.
Witty, charming and sometimes topical, Jamie can run you through the entire gamut of emotions in one show, from the ache of "Maybe You Miss Me" to the wacko "I Wanna Be A Straight Guy" (her answer to Louden Wainwright's "I Wish I Was A Lesbian"). Jamie has slso taught songwriting at Duke, music festivals and other places.
