This is something Jamie came up with back in July 2015. In Jamie’s own words, this is what the Song Society is all about.
I love learning other people’s songs. I find it teaches me a whole lot about songwriting which is particularly inspirational when I’m writing a new album (which is what I am doing NOW!) This time I thought I’d film and record it for you all to check it out and start an official Song Society. The songs I will be doing will be learnt and performed live, warts and all within an hour. These are NOT definitive reconstructions, just a window into my own education!
Below you can watch all 9 of Jamie’s versions of:
