Many songwriters say that they use experiences around them as inspirations for the songs that they write; but for New York native Jamie Bendell that statement is literal. She has a song for everything, no matter what time of day from waking up in the morning to going to bed at night.
On November 1 Jamie will be releasing her fourth EP “Blue Sky Days” via a CD release party at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City beginning at 8:30pm.
Born to a musical family, Jamie started playing the piano when she was only five years old; at nine she started writing songs and at 14 she added a new instrument – the guitar.
Armed with a Business Administration degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Jamie returned home to New York to begin her new career…as a musician. Since performing at open mic sessions six days a week, Jamie has released three EPs – “Waiting for Owls”, “Something More”, and “I’m Not Sorry Anymore”.
An admitted “endearingly neurotic Colbie Caillat”, Jamie says that anxiety and a great deal of emotion are the basis for her songs; as do things that, “drive me mad”.
“Saturday Night Live” fans will recognize Jamie as one of the backup singers for “Adam Sandler” on the comedy entertainment show.
