Jamie has given up his beloved Yamaha piano.
Jamie and his C7(one of Yamaha’s most popular pianos, often found in re-cording studios and music venues across the world) have been through a lot together. Jamie has recorded albums and toured with it, climbed on it, crawled underneath it and jumped from it.
The singer-songwriter and celebrated musician said, “This piano has ac-companied me through some of the most important parts of my life in the last 10 years. I have written songs on it, I have recorded albums with it, I have toured the world with it. It may have fallen in the mud at Glastonbury festival, it may have been used as a drinks table on numerous occasions but it has also been on stage at the Royal Albert Hall and was the piano I wrote Gran Torino on. I am thrilled to be able to give it to a worthy home. This grand piano is a mighty beast of an instrument stuffed full of memories that will hopefully inspire someone else to play and create.”
The piano will be on display from 15th October at Yamaha Music London on Wardour Street and then Camden’s Roundhouse from 20th October, where fans and members of the public will get a chance to play it. The piano will also be used by young musicians from the Roundhouse’s Creative Youth charity, where they will be learning how to write music.
