Jamie Connolly Live Studio Session
In this session, we introduce Jamie Connolly live in the studio performing his original song "Slowly Breaking Heart".
He is a singer-songwriter and rhythm guitarist from Leicester. Jamie takes his inspiration from life and as a result, his musical style is occasionally witty, always heartfelt, and honestly on his sleeve.
Born in Sutton Coldfield in 1981 & grew up in a sleepy village in south Staffs. He spent his childhood absorbing his parents' record collection & watching TOTP.
Mesmerized by 80s Rock icons including Queen, Bowie, U2, Bon Jovi, Live Aid. Later as a teen, he got swept up in the 90s 'Britpop' era, influenced by icons including Oasis, Blur, Pulp.
Always a restless, creative mind, Jamie first learned guitar aged 16.
Later in life, he graduated from a contemporary theater degree at MMU Cheshire in 2004, during which time he performed in a piece at Edinburgh Fringe festival.
He performed his West End debut in a variety show at London's Haymarket in 2006. A few years later he toured with a professional musical production in 2008. This was when he rediscovered his passion for the guitar & songwriting.
