During the global pandemic, Jamie Hannah went back to his classical musical roots and delivered what he is best known for, writing a catalog of haunting yet uplifting melodies that are now ready to be released ‘Flowers’ is the first song for his forthcoming EP.
“May the flowers remind us why the rain was necessay” – Xan Oku
“This quote resonated in me while creating ‘Flowers’ while in lockdown allowing me to look deep within myself to exmine my owmn personal experiemnce of love – both good and less good.. It was a cathartic process.It is primarily a song about the unicersal quest to find love, it tries to evoke the joyus yet volatile beauty of love.Allowing yourself to fall in love is a huge jump inot the unknown and takes bravery and strength.” Continuing Jamie says, “When you listen to mt new song I want you to feel that it is ok to feel vulb]nerable searching for love.Getting hurt or being let down during the process is a necessary part of life to have experience the euphoria and the joy to smell the flowwrs.We have all experienced sinilar challenges- and it’s time for us not to feel alone in the discovery process. I wrote the song alongside two amazing felame producers Andrea Rocha and Anna Straker.”
As well as concentrating on writing powerful melodies and lyrics over lockdown Jamie put together socially distanced concerts in car parks for the elderly confined to nursing homes and for his neighbours in local city apartment blocks. “Lockdown was incredibly difficult for everyone and I felt that music was a universal language that would help lift everyone’s spirits.”
Jamie has some celebrity fans that have given their opinion of his singing and his songs Dame Emma Thompson went on record saying ” The potential in this young artist is breath-taking. His music is absolutely cracking. Amazing!”
Glowing adoration from Boy George “Jamie is a natural! His classical touches are just magical.
