A huge little woonder

Rhythm’n’Blues beyond Blackness: That is what London’s Jamie Woon is good at. And he will be proving that in the Heimathafen on April 22nd. In 2011, the son of a Scottish Celtic-folk singer and a Malay-Chinese hurled his acclaimed debut album »Mirrorwriting« onto the market. Music press and nerds alike knew: here comes something remarkable. An emotional, spherical, electronic sound, influenced by South London Dubstep and reminiscent of soul. He was a little bit early with this combination, the world might have not been quite ready for it yet. Five years have since passed, Jamie Woon spent time sitting in a remote forest cabin and roaming the coast of Cornwall in search of himself and letting nature and nocturnal silence deliver inspiration for new songs. The result is a luscious sound with rich tones, but still the characteristic melodic humility that put the self-proclaimed singer/songwriter right up there with James Blake as a pioneer of spiritually minded R’n’B. In the wake of D’Angelo, mainstream audiences finally saw what this exceptional young artist was capable of: real music, a warm soundtrack for the cuddly evenings in front of fire places around the world. He has outgrown his electronic roots and is reviving traditional music composition. Everything has become more organic, more analogue, more real. He transports sophisticated lyrics with his strong and multifaceted voice. During his upcoming concert in the Heimathafen, Jamie Woon will be supported by some warm musical sunshine: the funk-soul-pop artist Jodie Abacus is the modern alternative for all those a little ashamed of being Lionel Richie fans. For those of you who want to bounce along: we are giving away 1×2 tickets to the particularly bouncy among you. Send us an email headlining ‚HELLO!?‘ to hurra@muxmaeuschenwild.de.
