Overview: Jamie Thomas had his musical epiphany not at the proverbial crossroads but a schoolyard in Astoria, Queens, where the music of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and others touched his soul and inspired him to play and sing music as well as write songs. He honed his skills as a performer playing New York clubs in a band before striking out on his own, making his bones as a solo act in the ground zero of the American folk movement, Greenwich Village................. He later headed south of Mason-Dixon to the folk and roots motherlode, spending time in Nashville before landing in Austin, where he has made his mark on the music community both with his own frequent shows and joining such local scene stalwarts as Will Sexton, Stephen Doster and Bill Carter on stage. His performances mix his own steeped-in-the-tradition originals with his reinterpretations of other numbers from the great real American music songbook that span from its origins to today.
