JAMIE McCREDIE

A graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, over the last few years Jamie has cemented his reputation as one of the UK's busiest and most versatile guitarists.

Currently on European/USA tour with Roisin Murphy, Jamie can be heard on her recent Mercury Music Prize nominated album Hairless Toys, and her new release Take Her Up To Monto.


Jamie has featured live & on record with a multitude of other artists including Una Healy (The Saturdays), Nell Bryden, Simple Minds, Jools Holland, Melody Gardot, Kid Creole, and many more. His guitar playing and arrangements have featured in many dramas and film scores around the world, and he frequently contributes to international radio & TV adverts and themes.

 

In 2001 Jamie won BBC Radio's Guitarist of the Year competition before studying music full time, gaining two separate Masters of Music qualifications; The first in contemporary composition (Newcastle University 2003), and the second in jazz performance & arranging (Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2009). 

 

Also active in London's West End, Jamie regularly plays the Book of Mormon and Beautiful, having previously played Thriller Live and the UK premier of the Color Purple.


As a composer and artist in his own right, Jamie also leads his own band and performs frequently as a soloist around the UK. These live shows explore his interest in the gaps between jazz, rock & classical harmony, and focus on  modern, memroable melodies and flawless command of the guitar.

 

Based in Central London, Jamie has his own guitar production suite in the old Candle Maker building in Battersea (Price Studios) and continues to play internationally both as a recording artist and part of a multitude of live bands around the world.

He also doubles on bass, drums, banjo, mandolin and piano, reading fluently on all.
