What do you get when you mix catchy pop melodies with heartbreaking ballads? Jaime Willson.
The 21-year-old, born and raised in country SA (Kadina), developed her signature smooth but powerful vocal style whilst playing piano as a child. Growing up listening to her parents favourite artists, such as The Beatles, Lou Reed, David Bowie and Pete Murray, Jaime fell in love with a wide range of musical genres. Attending a Christian school throughout her primary and secondary years also sparked her love for singing gospel music.
Being a shy singer growing up, Jaime found her passion for songwriting. She wrote her first song when she was 15, and spent all of her spare time writing music, playing the piano, and singing her favourite songs. A piano was never far from Jaime's reach, which is why it heavily influences her music to this day.
After attending boarding school in the city, and moving away from home to study music at university, Jaime has finally come out of her shell. She is performing in Adelaide, and back home in the country, as well as supporting artists such as Trent Bell (X Factor's "The Collective").
In August 2018, Jaime was also a winner in the Songwriters, Composers & Lyricists Association (SCALA) Inc. Festival Of Original Music (FOOM) songwriting competition, for her original song "Postcard".
Since then, Jaime has completed her honours degree at University, achieving first class, and is set to release her debut album in 2019.
