Jaimey Hamilton is among the new generation of exciting, up and coming Canadian country/pop artists. Born in a sea side town located on Canada’s pacific west coast, Jaimey has used the inspiration of calming ocean waves and misty mountains, to create her own brand of modern country/pop.
Music and song craft fuel Jaimey’s passion in life, and have also been a major source of healing for her. By the age of twelve, Jaimey had been diagnosed with Leukemia three times, surviving a bone marrow transplant. Writing songs has helped Jaimey through her tough times and called to focus her natural ability to turn a phrase into great melodies.
In March 2017, Jaimey had an amazing opportunity to have a wish granted by the Children’s Wish Foundation. Her wish naturally, was to travel to the big city and record the song “Survive", with producer Adam Alexander (composer of ‘Shattered’ by Jillea). Her wish was granted, and soon she was on a plane to Toronto to embark on her dream. A total of eight songs were produced at Diamond Factory Studio, including her current single Parachute, as well as Candy Cigarette.
The future looks bright for Jaimey. She is studying music and voice full time in Victoria, BC, at the Conservatory of Music, and has enlisted the help of Juno Nominated artist Scotty Hills, to produce and co-write for Jaimey’s sophomore album. She has recently played music festivals such as Sunfest and the Islands Folk Fest, and has been featured in Victoria’s Times Columnist. 2019 will be a big year for Jaimey.
