Folk Roots Radio Episode 459: feat. Jamie Shea & More New Releases

Hamilton ON singer-songwriter Jamie Shea joins us on Episode 459 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his first album “Come Down To The Water”. Well known on the Hamilton music scene as a band guitarist playing rock, pop, blues and jazz, Jamie’s solo debut is long overdue – and finally arrived on his 50th birthday. Come Down To The Water is an excellent album with a lovely upbeat feel. It’s a great interview, and quite inspirational – we definitely hope you’ll stay with us to check it out. We also take a first listen to new music from Daniel Norgren, Jessica Heine, Peter Light, The Small Glories, Shari Ulrich, Jesse Parent, Kevin Mitchell and Emily Mure. Check out the full playlist below.


Jamie Shea’s solo debut Come Down To The Water features 11 well-crafted songs about personal experiences, love and loss – and the triumph of the human spirit. Produced by Michael Birthelmer at Pine Street Studio in Hamilton with some fine musical support, the new album has a really nice feel to it.
