Hey there friends, a very warm welcome to the first episode of the Lumieres Podcast.

The idea of creating a podcast has been hanging around on the peripheries of my dreaming for the last year or so. After some hard work and  a little magical manifesting, here we are now in the reality! I’m excited to embark on this journey and I hope you’ll find it an entertaining and inspiring listen.

First up we have Jamie Morrison – Musician and Producer extraordinaire. Jamie is one heck of a productive and driven human being. His sparkling energy is a delight to behold and we had a wonderful conversation touching on all aspects of his life thus far. There’s also an extremely rare chance early on in the show to hear a some music by one of Jamie’s first bands, Manzerik. I want to express my gratitude to Jamie for his time and energy in making this happen… thanks brother!

If you feel to connect through liking, sharing or subscribing to the podcast I gratefully welcome your support.

Until the next time, big love everybody.

Jody

BACKGROUND:

Jamie built his solid reputation as one of the UK’s most proficient drummers through early collaborations, appearing on Later… with Jools with Willis before joining The Noisettes in 2003. After the Noisettes ended, he played with Brian Adams, Martha Reeves and Sia amongst others, before getting the call to join Welsh rockers Stereophonics in 2012. As well as traveling all over the world playing shows, he is also a prolific producer, recently releasing a series of EPs with the collaborative ‘If You Want To Make a Song… HOLLA’ concept. He also co-produced the recent EP by Elkka, ‘HER’, which is currently ripping up the Spotify charts.
