SHREM'S LATE MONDAY NIGHT SESSIONS: "SHARPNESS" + "MESSAGE" - Jamie Woon
I'm sure you must have noticed by now that I fall for male vocals rather rarely but when I came across Jamie Woon and his velvet voice for the very first time, discovering "Night Air" and "Lady Luck" back in 2011, it was sort of a revelation. Serenading his electronic soul tales, Woon's impeccable productions lie somewhere between James Blake, SOHN and Jamie Lidell. "Sharpness" is a delectable slice of neo-soul setting the tone smoothly for the London singer's second album "Making Time" set to be released 6th November 2015 via Polydor. The understated "Message" works up an appetite for this evident musical feast even more. You wouldn't be exaggerating calling Jamie Woon a crooner of a modern era, with his impressive vocal capabilities and subtly oldfashioned melodies with a contemporary twist. This autumn season is shaping up to be truly elegant and memorable.
