Soulful, deep, bluesy and pop vocalist with punchy and compelling lyrics, melodies and harmonies. I have unique and definitive vocals and a knack for writing catchy tunes. I study Songwriting at Berklee College of Music gaining mentorship from some greats of the songwriting industry.
I love writing songs to get you moving whether that's on the dance floor or in your feels. I have experience writing for pop, R&B, dance, house, afro-house and electronic music. My style is eclectic and influenced by: Adele, Amy Winehouse, Ella Eyre, Dua Lipa and sometimes a bit of Elton John! I grew up listening to jazz and training as a jazz vocalist which gave me a lot of theoretical background. Studying at Berklee I became passionate about songwriting and writing pop tunes. My writing ranges from quirky and fun to deep and emotionally gripping. As a top liner I have had a lot of experience working with different DJ's from around the world writing for dance tracks. As a songwriter I write using keys as a harmonic basis and build from there.

I emailed Jamie asking for a low tempo cover of an upbeat song and received it the next day. She is professional and an incredible talent.
Jamie What A Talent We Have . A star she is
Jamie was extremely professional yet made me feel so comfortable to explore my thoughts and ideas with her. I am new to producing and she was a true catalyst to my progress and growth.
We used Jamie as a vocalist for a major brand. I cannot say enough about her professionalism and incredible voice. Not only did she deliver above and beyond our expectations but brought so much to the track that we had not even thought about. Incredible talent
So happy I got to work with Jamie ! She's so professional, understanding and talented. We made an awesome song together cant wait to work with her again.
Interview with Jamie Fallon Smith
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If I receive a beat I come up with a melody and then add lyrics later I will double the vocal for texture and add harmonies where it suits best. If I write a song from scratch, I pick a key, a time signature and a tempo and usually flow from there.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Bluesy and soulful pop with an Amy Winehouse tone.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, house, dance and R&B and Soul
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am currently working on my debut EP. It hasn't been released yet but I am already proud because I have been working towards it for two years and it is finally coming together so beautifully and at a time in my life that makes sense.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Writing an Ep, top-lining pop and dance tracks and studying at music school.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. As much as I enjoy the sound of analog, digital is a lot faster to work with and can be manipulated more. However both take skill.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To be absolute true to the music and what it calls for.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to connect people and resonate with people through personal story-telling.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it is easy and simple to come up with melody and lyric ideas in such a short space of time and that recording vocals is quick to do. Being a songwriter and singer depends on the creative space and emotional stability as much as it does on the voice itself.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your intention behind the creation of a track?
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Condensor mic, Interphase, laptop (with Logic Pro), MIDI keyboard and amp.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been singing my entire life and work as a top liner and songwriter while studying a songwriting degree at Berklee College of Music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Adele, she is so honest in her work and everything she writes resonates with me on such a deep level. Her raw and organic sound inspires me to do the same.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: When it comes to vocal production one should learn how to edit themselves and find the best microphone for their sound, not all microphones bring out the best sounds for some people. A mic "shootout" is always a good idea before recording vocals.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is how quickly I can come up with melodies and ideas. It is also my technical abilities and understanding of my instrument.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring attitude and confidence, I also get into the depths of emotions in the songs, I like to belt so a lot of my songs have a wide range and big build up to the "big note". At other times I can go for a laid-back husky sound that's super chilled and calming but still has a grit to it.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Rode NT1 condensor microphone, PreSonus Audiobox iTwo, Logic ProX
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jordan Rakei, Zak Abel, Mark Ronsen, Yebba, Anderson Paak, Jorja Smith, Joy Crookes, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Top-lining on dance tracks and songwriting.
