Jamie N Common’s gritty sound and unique baritone have frequently earned him comparisons to artists such as Nick Cave and Tom Waits. Signed to US label Interscope/KIDinaKORNER and Fiction Records in the UK, the Bristol-born singer-guitarist splits his time between London and Los Angeles.
Having released several acclaimed EPs and singles – including ‘Jungle’, his 2014 hit collaboration with labelmates X Ambassadors - Jamie is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut album.
His songs have been featured in many high profile filns, trailers, adverts and TV series - including 'Lead Me Home' for 'Walking Dead', 'Rumble and Sway' in the trailer for the Cohen Brother's 'Hail Cesar!', and 'Not Gonna Break Me' for the BBC's trailer for their 2016 Olympic Games coverage.
‘Not Gonna Break Me’ was written, recorded and produced solely by Jamie, who plays almost every instrument on the song. “I had this creative burst and wanted to get everything out as soon as I could,” he says. “It ended up being really liberating, which is very much reflected in the mood of the song.”
