Jamie McDell
Since the release of her first single ‘You’ll Never Take That Away’ in February, 2012 has been a whirlwind year for singer songwriter Jamie McDell! Her highly anticipated debut full-length album, Six Strings And A Sailboat, has just been released on November 16th.

Featuring #1 NZ singles ‘You’ll Never Take That Away’, ‘Rewind’ and the new single ‘Life In Sunshine’, the 13-track album showcases New Zealand’s brightest new songwriting talent.

Hailing from the northern surf town of Mangawhai, Jamie McDell has always surrounded herself with the simpler things in life, like music, and the ocean. From surfing to diving to living on a sailboat in the Mediterranean for a number of years as a child, the shark-obsessed, dolphin-possessed water baby never strays too far from the beach, or her guitar.

In early 2012, at 19 years old, she appeared out of the ether as her popularity grew from a rapidly expanding YouTube and social network fan base.

A constant video blogger, Jamie’s collection of songs she had written began to cause a stir on YouTube as she entered a phase of penning new songs almost as furiously as she was uploading them. With her unique cover versions of tracks from The Black Keys, Six60 and U2 and various mash-ups of contemporary pop hits, she was twice picked up by popular US-based tween website Disney Dreaming. Her cover of One Direction’s ‘One Thing’ for influential US =based blog website Perez Hilton’s ‘Can You Sing?’ competition was recognised as an honourable mention and Perez made a positive comparison to successful singer/songwriter Jewel. "Jamie McDell's cover reminds us of Jewel. And that's a good thing!"

With a voice and lyrics that display an emotive, earnest nature similar to Taylor Swift and a songwriting style reminiscent of Hawaiian acoustic guitar folk-man Jack Johnson, Jamie McDell’s songs are unashamedly pop and undoubtedly some of the country’s best loved. Six Strings And A Sailboat is the album that Jamie McDell has been writing for as long as she knew how to play a guitar.

‘This album is made up from my favourite songs that I've written throughout my life. I see it as kind of diary entry into some of the experiences I've had, things I've learnt, and what's important to me. Each of the songs has it's own story so they're all very honest and have come from a real place.’

As Jamie McDell’s repertoire grew so did her online popularity and the success of ‘You’ll Never Take That Away’ was a revelation and confirmed the NZ public’s approval of her summery, honest pop style. After its release in February 2012 the song swiftly climbed to #9 on NZ’s overall airplay chart and spent 4 weeks at #1 on the NZ Singles chart. It was subsequently certified as a Gold single and has had over 170,000 views on YouTube.

‘Rewind’ followed suit soon after topping the NZ singles chart and garnering huge pop radio airplay, while the video caused another online stir for Jamie’s music, with the music video climbing to over 60,000 views in no time.

As of October 2012 her collective YouTube views are at over 600,000 while her current Facebook following is over 12,000 likes.
