Guitarist and singer with a very extensive repertoire which covers jazz, pop and classical styles.
Canadian-born Jamie Moore studied composition at Berklee College of Music, Boston, USA and followed that with a masters degree in composition at the University of Alberta. He has several classical compositions to his credit, including UK premieres, but his main musical activity for the last 20 years has been as a guitarist and vocalist.
A most versatile performer, Jamie is able to cover a wide range of jazz, pop standards and classical music instrumentally, but has the added gift of being able to sing to a very high standard. This makes him suitable for a wide range of occasions, for example, background classical or jazz guitar for a wedding or corporate reception, with the option of adding vocals, up to jazz duos, trios or quartets. He also plays in larger ensembles and groups showcasing Canadian music, and has a specialised Christmas repertoire.
An equity and musicians union member, Jamie has much experience of the stage including lead vocal / acting / instrumental roles in many West End and UK touring musicals, eg Pump Boys & Dinettes, The Threepenny Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, Jaques Brel Is Alive & Well, Godspell, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Age 13 3/4.

‘Quirky and unusual, Canadian singer/guitarist Jamie Moore might be deemed a jazzer but you can’t really accuse him of being superficially mainstream due to the high individuality-count in his corpuscles.’ – What’s On, Birmingham
