The sweet spot where folk & country meet

Thank goodness for all the lonely paths Jamie Lin Wilson has had to find that no one else has taken. With a voice that slides in and out of notes with easy grace, a sly sense of humor and lyrics that highlight the details most of us miss, Jamie creates stark vignettes: intimate conversations between friends who might be lovers and lovers who can’t be friends; kids hopping from stone to stone in a graveyard; the way rolling clouds can signal a new season. She lives and works in that sweet spot where folk and country meet – Guy Clark territory. It’s her comfort in and commitment to two distinct worlds – the dream-chasing artists and the dirt-under-their-nails realists – that makes Jamie and her songs not just inviting, but cathartic and  important. She cut her teeth fronting and co-fronting beloved bands, including The Gougers and The Trishas, winning over listeners and peers across the country. Her place as an acclaimed singer/songwriter on her own is imbued with a singular blend of freshness and road-earned wisdom. Jamie didn’t pick up a guitar until she was 19. She started attending open mics in College Station and was welcomed into what was primarily a boys’ club of aspiring pickers and writers that included future fellow Gouger, Shayne Walker. Her newest recording, Jumping Over Rocks, marks her second full-length solo album. It’s a rich collection of story songs delivered over rootsy strings, moody keys, crying steel and sparse percussion, carried by Jamie’s songbird soprano that can convey tears or laughter with equal panache, sometimes in the same bar.
