This week, Jamie Drake: a Southern California-based singer/songwriter who transports listeners into a vibrant, technicolor world with her deeply vulnerable fingerpicked ballads and thorny, theatrical story songs.
Have you ever wondered what would have happened if Carole King wrote epic musicals on the moon? Listening to LA’s magical songstress Jamie Drake will provide a clue as to what that would sound like. She writes songs with a certain old Hollywood glamour to them, and after a decade of helping other people write and sing, she got signed — and has an insanely lush record, Everything’s Fine, coming out in September.
Her new single, “Redwood Tree,” is out on Friday.
