About Jamie

BBC Introducing In The Southwest “Stunning” “Inimitable” “Insanely Talented”
Public liability insurance of £10 million

South West, UK based singer-songwriter Jamie Yost deft ability to craft songs became quickly apparent with the worldwide success of his 2018 single “Runaway” with over 250,000 streams online. Yost has since caught the eye of prestigious festivals delivering a headline performance at Cambridge Folk Festivals “The Den” stage and supporting the likes of Nathan Ball, Skinny Living and Wildwood Kin. In 2022 Yost teamed up with the illustrious ‘Mahogany Sessions’ to share an exclusive performance of his track ‘Storm’ standing him next to previous powerhouse performers including Billie Eilish & Dermot Kennedy. Jamie finished off 2022 with the release of his second EP ‘Yesteryears’, an entirely self produced lockdown record and a deep dive into older material. Yost is set to release his third EP late 2023 including recent single 'Nightmares'. BBC Introducing In The Southwest “Stunning” “Inimitable” “Insanely Talented”

Jamie was amazing, we were so caught up in the day we didn’t have a chance to chat to him much but he took all the information we had told him before hand and was there on time and set up. Everyone commented on how amazing he was and what a beautiful voice he had. Highly recommend hiring him you will not regret it

Link to full review So, that’s dinner over with and I’m stuffed but now it’s time for the show so pull up a chair. Jamie Yost is a Torquay native who has been adopted by Plymouth and he’s quickly become one of the leading lights of the city’s burgeoning music scene. Surrounded by some of the most talented musicians the city has to offer, Yost nervously straps on his guitar and welcomes the crowd to rapturous applause. Working through a set of his own songs, Yost shows a soulfulness and depth far beyond his years not to mention a voice that could melt a heart at a hundred paces. Switching effortlessly between electric and acoustic (traditional and lap), Yost also spends some time sitting behind a piano and you have to wonder at the musical ability of a man who has clearly spent just as much time crafting the songs as he has practicing the art of playing. There is a spine-tingling moment when the sell-out crowd sings the chorus of recent single ‘Stay’ back at Yost, nearly knocking him off his stride, but it’s no surprise as it’s a serious hook with mass appeal. Jamie Yost The band take a well-earned break and so Yost treats us to some solo material including early song ‘Small Town’ about growing up in his native Torquay. As the band re-join their leader, the set builds to a triumphant and atmospheric climax with the drumming of Dan Johnson adding an intensity that burrows in to your every sense. A standing ovation closes out the night and we’re left in no doubt that we’ve just witnessed the transition of a musician moving from promising local talent to serious contender and it was a delight to be part of.
