Jamie Woon

Wayfaring Stranger EP

LIVE Recordings

Released: 19th February 2007 | 4 track neo-soul ep
Jamie Woon, a 23-year-old modernist soul talent is vast getting a reputation for melting rooms with his unique voice, acoustic guitar and Loopstation. Jamie's hypnotic, all-vocal interpretation of lost-in-time folksong Warfaring Stranger gives a nod to the past, and a funked-up wave to the future, as dubstep hotshot Burial steps up with a beautifully dark and evocative remix. Shaped by old soul and folk as much as electronica, Woon draws on influences as diverse as Prince and Thom Yorke. He has established a massive live reputation through his own monthly event, OneTaste, tireless gigging around the country and a mega-vibrant profile on the MySpace community. There is real depth to his voice, equally at home singing acapella as it is bolstered by the latest street soul production †as heard on the Stitch remix. Already receiving radio airplay from tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson the momentum is building on Jamie’s debut single. With a Worldwide Awards Nomination and nods from trend spotters Dazed & Confused + industry bible Music Week Jamie Woon is set to go supernova any day now.
"...can not be faulted on any front…Woon's supremely soulful vocal makes the tune outstandingly accessible."
"exceptionally atmospheric, near a capella …impressive stuff ****"
Matt Anniss, DJ Magazine
"Soulful and sexy…Jamie makes the song his own…Burial takes the helm on the remix for an irresistible dubstep reworking"
"A very distinct but conteporary sound that brings this 200 year old folk song into the 21st century and on to the dancefloor"
Music Week
"Woon succeeds where others have failed by combining innate vocal talent and awe-inspiring musicianship with a sense of curiosity and adventure."
"Likeable enough, but turn over and dubstep's enigmatic Burial does it again."
"Exudes emotion and vulnerability beyond Woon's years."
"This is folk sculpted from multi-layered vocals and clicked fingers; music with transportative rather than knitting power"
Emma Warren, Observer Music Monthly
"Woons Single is a work of malevolent beaty that suggests an 'Unfinished Sympathy' of our time"
Time Out
"Like Warp's Jamie Lidell, Woon recalls Marvin Gaye and Prince, adding electromica topspin to his nu-soul ball."
