Jamie W. Hall is a performer who has built up an exciting and varied career in music, from concert soloist and recitalist; to skilled ensemble singer, conductor and even composer with a number of published works to his name. In recent years however, Jamie’s focus has been on singing, continuing to perform online to a growing audience during the COVID crisis – a move commended by the RPS in 2020.
Whilst he continues to feed his passion for choral music as a full-time member of the BBC Singers, Jamie is fast gaining recognition as a versatile and engaging performer of Art Song, and his performances, both live and recorded, have been enjoyed across the world.
Growing up in a Yorkshire mining village in the 1980s, Jamie’s route into classical music was somewhat unconventional. With only a few piano lessons and an adolescence spent busking show tunes behind him, he nevertheless followed his heart and found himself studying music at university where he discovered both his voice and a love of classical music.
Jamie has a great fondness for the songs of Franz Schubert, so it is with particular joy that he is able to bring that wonderful music to this, his first CD.
