Jamie Hartford is a very talented fellow. He is a recognized electric guitar innovator and leader of his own powerhouse roots-rock outfit, the Jamie Hartford Band. He is an extraordinary songwriter and a wonderful singer. He is also a world-class acoustic musician and the living legacy of musical-visionary, John Hartford.
Jamie's musical history spans generations and genres. From high school rock and jazz bands to festival stages with his father. He has toured with the Everly Brothers and Billy Joe Shaver. He grew up surrounded by the music of Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Norman Blake, and Vassar Clements. His close friends and mentors include Guy Clark and "Cowboy" Jack Clement. He has worked with producers ranging from Kyle Lehning and Allen Reynolds, to Pete Anderson and T. Bone Burnette. Along the way, he has released records on labels as diverse as Asylum (Warner Bros.) and Flying Fish (indie).
Even with such a rich musical heritage, Jamie Hartford has always made his own music. Not content to follow in the musical steps of his famous father, Jamie has found his own voice. With it, he has earned a dedicated audience and the respect of his peers in the creative community.
Through its history, the Jamie Hartford Band has featured a who's-who of Nashville musicians including Darrell Scott, Michael Henderson, Pat McLaughlin, and Ray Flacke. The band's recent lineup of Jamie, longtime drummer Rick Lonow, bass guru David Pomeroy, and harmonica wizard Paco Shipp released STUFF THAT WORKS in 2004.
That same year, Jamie's creative evolution brought him full-circle to the roots of his musical heritage when he began recording an all-acoustic project featuring songs written by his late father.
