Introducing: Jamie Reeves

happy vs happy1

“Jamie Reeves is an overnight sensation that has taken 21 years to get here.”

Jamie started his career as a DJ/Kids entertainer in Majorca, before moving to Haven Holidays as lead male vocalist.  From there he joined the cabaret circuit, working with Jerry Lane and touring all over the UK.

 Jamie has worked on his own material, and also produced his own cabaret show, touring around UK holiday centres.  He’s performed on Channel 4 and BBC Radio 1 in his tribute shows, “Gobbie Williams”, and “Young Blue Eyes”.  From there he set up the Singing Waiters, “A Laaaaa Garcons” in 2009, and has toured extensively with this act.

Jamie’s influences include, apart from The Rat Pack and Robbie Williams, Tom Jones, Levi Stubbs, Al Green, and Freddie Mercury.  You can also hear echoes of Michael Buble in his voice.

Jamie’s EP, “Happy Vs Happy” was released on CD in June last year, but it’s now available to download on iTunes.

Jamie sings his own version Pharell William’s “Happy” and pits it against his cover of Velvet Hammer’s northern soul classic by the same name.

We really liked “Happy Vs Happy”!  Jamie has a gorgeous voice, and he sings with a lot of passion. Check out his northern soul style cover of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” here:

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
