JAMIE SHEW

Jazz Vocalist, Educator, Composer, & Arranger


 
"Jamie Shew has a strong, clear and attractive voice, sounding very comfortable in all registers....she can swing at every tempo, sounds at home interacting with jazz musicians, and is a subtle but creative improviser."
...Scott Yanow
(author of ten books including The Jazz Singers, Trumpet Kings, Jazz On Film and Jazz On Record 1917-76)
 
“Jazz vocals just do NOT get more inspiring … among the very best jazz vocals I’ve heard in a long time… simply stellar.  MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this fantastic (& very collectible) CD."
...Dick Metcalf of Contemporary Fusion Reviews
 
"Anyone who’s ever suffered a great loss – and that means all of us at some point – will find moving, inspiring and coolly swinging redemption in vocalist and songwriter Jamie Shew’s Eyes Wide Open.  Eyes Wide Open is a testament to the beauty of true love and the timeless healing power of music."
...Jonathon Widran, The JW Vibe
 
"A swinging thrush that knows how to deliver the mix of songs here has a bunch of chestnuts that she puts her own stamp on making them right at home next to her originals. A solid treat for any jazz vocal fan."
...Chris Spector, Midwest Record
 
"Jamie Shew is a jazz vocalist that's got it all -- style, talent, looks, and boundless enthusiasm for the music.  
She's an effervescent entertainer sure to please the crowd as well as the discriminating jazz aficionado -- my kind of singer!"
          
             ...Charles Argersinger
 
 
"She is an intelligent singer, approaching scat singing with a decidedly instrumental cast.  She has impeccable time and a fluid emerging style."    
          ...Sunny Wilkinson
 


"Our musical discovery this morning, singer Jamie Shew, studied with one of America's finest
vocal jazz teachers - Sunny Wilkinson who lives in Lansing, Michigan. You can tell that Ms. Shew learned her lessons well!"
