Summer 2017…..

Well it's summertime 2017 and it's time for a party. Let me know if you'd like me to sing at your backyard BBQ?

I just recently moved to Ayr Ontario. I guess I'm getting connected to my small town roots. I'm still only 10 minutes from the studio (Cedartree). Rick Hutt and I have 7 songs demoed already for a new cd due out the beginning of 2018. I think this new record is gonna be pretty cool, but I'm thinking you'll be the judge of that. I've still got a couple more songs to write for it.

The kids are doing well. Katy is out in the working world, still singing and writing and Josh heads into his 4th year at Sherriden (musical theatre).

I'm planning in the fall to have more videos and live performances connected to this website. Let me know your thoughts on that?

I hope life is good. Take the time to be in the moment. I hate to break it to you but the only place we can be is where we are, so why not enjoy it!  I hope to see you somewhere this summer. Time to golf!!

It’s All About the Song

Well it's 2016 and I've got a really good feeling about this year. I believe you will hear more from us artists from the 90s. I had to admit I chuckled when I found out my music was now considered "Classic Country"…nothin' wrong with that. I'm gonna really push "Stories and Songs" this year. It's an old fashioned guitar pull featuring well known iconic Candian artists. You can learn more about these concerts by checking out or look for updates on this site. If you'd like to book this show contact

I’ve been writing a lot over the last 6 months with some cool new artists you’ll hear from this year: Jesse Treneer, Brad James, Brooklyn Roebuck, Rebeka Stevens and Amy Rolla, to name a few. The kids are doing well. Josh has started to write and record his first cd? and Katy has been performing quite a bit lately.

I’m just beginning to record a cd ? and I’m pretty excited about my new material. Look for me to post some live performances of these songs. I’m still doing house concerts so If you’d like me to come to your home and perform for your friends let me know. I’ve heard I’m a lot of fun lol.

I hope life kisses your butt this year! Stay in touch 🙂 Jamie

Ps feel free to hug a someone.

Teaching, Family & Writing……

Would you like to write better  songs? Maybe learn what to do with them when they're finished? I'm  teaching a 5 week song-writing course at Conestoga College (Kitchener)  this fall. Every Tuesday evening in November. Look for the link on this  web-site. I'm excited about teaching. I promise we'll have some fun!

The summer is over…man it went by quickly. I had a great time playing and traveling Ontario. To my Alberta peeps, I was also at Stampede…  Speaking of the west I will be out in AB the last 2 weeks of October. The dates will be up on the site shortly. Duane Steele is in Ontario for a couple of weeks, we've got a couple shows together this weekend.
From a writing standpoint my new CD has gestated. I wrote the first song for this new record. We're gonna start demoing stuff shortly. I think I've still got something to say in? my music. I'm excited to use my voice for good lol. 
Over the past year I've been writing with some cool young artists…Jesse Treneer, Brooklyn Roebuck and Brad James.? I look forward to hearing those songs on the radio.
Katy and Josh are doing well and still singin' up a storm. Please come out to one of our shows. We're gonna do some Christmas shows together as a family.
I love fall…cause I love fall golf 🙂 Ok, I just love fall. I hope life throws you a hug…


take care…. Jamie

Backyard BBQ’s, Writing & Skype

Well kids, summer is upon us and parties outside begin. Nothing truly says summer more than alcohol consumed in the sun 🙂 If you'd like me to play at your house let me know. I do backyard bbqs for the next 3 months. For the right price I might even river dance (

I've been writing constantly with other artists for their projects over the last year. I hope to hear a few of my songs on country radio again…with someone younger and not me singin' lol. I've just start writing my 8th cd and I'll start recording it this fall?. I'm excited about the new material. I shall not go quietly into the night!

The kids (Katy and Josh) are both still singing, writing and playing. We're gonna do some Warren Family Christmas shows this year. Let me know if you'd like to book us…the harmonies are pretty cool.

Check out the dates right here and come see me this summer. I've been developing a composition (song-writing) class that's available in person or via skype. Contact me thru this site if you're interested.

May your parade have no rain 🙂 Jamie

Happy 2014!

Welcome to 2014 🙂 We've had quite the "old school" winter here in Canada. Btw if you'd like me to play a house concert at your place the end of Feb or beginning of March contact me here on the site or on fb.

I've begun my yearly cleanse (Jan-Mar 1st). I enjoy the clarity it brings…oh yeah and the cash I save not drinking lol.

Carrie DeMaeyer and I have been writing with a lot of young artists. Brad James, Kaitlin Kozelle, Jessie Treneer and Katy Warren. They should all have singles this year penned with Carrie and I. It's been fun working with Rick Hutt arranging these new songs.

I've really enjoyed listening to country radio this past year…the music is young and cool!…and cool is what I do 🙂 haha.

Katy and Josh are back to college and singin' up a storm.

My small town life in Dutton is a blast…I do miss my Kdub.

I hope you stay warm this winter. Take care…Jamie
