Jamie N Commons

With his rich, rasping vocals and penchant for darkly passionate songwriting, British singer/guitarist Jamie N Commons delivers a gritty brand of rock & roll that instantly transports any listener to another era.

For Commons, a fierce love for the blues at the heart of his high-powered rock began at a very early age. Born in Bristol but raised in Chicago, Commons accompanied his music-obsessed father to Allman Brothers Band and Neil Young concerts when he was a little kid. At 10, the back-to-back releases of Moby’s gospel-infused Play and the Americana-tinged O Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack prompted Commons to delve more deeply into the roots of rock music. By the time he was 15, Commons had scored his own guitar and started teaching himself to play.

After several stints in high-school punk bands, Commons headed to Goldsmiths and soon became fascinated with British folk troubadours like Nick Drake and John Martyn and Delta blues legends like Mississippi John Hurt. While at school he put together a band and began playing shows at local dive bars, taking on a rigorous gigging schedule that quickly led him to land a publishing deal.

Despite charting new musical territory throughout Rumble And Sway, Commons retains the same rugged spirit that’s instilled his songwriting and performance since he first claimed boundary-pushing artists like Tom Waits, JJ Cale, and Johnny Cash as his heroes.
