Jamie McLean Band
"McLean and company ooze drops of southern roots rock, blues, R&B, funk and soul out of every note... the rock & roll swagger of the Rolling Stones combined with the songwriting prowess of Ryan Adams."- Jambase
A genuine triple threat, McLean is a guitarist for New Orleans royalty Aaron Neville and Dirty Dozen Brass Band. He's toured the globe playing fiery guitar everywhere from Madison Square Garden to Japan’s Fuji Rock. Jamie's blue-eyed Southern soul vocals and top-line songwriting chops tie it together. With hundreds of original compositions to his name, McLean creates a gumbo that incorporates New Orleans soul, Delta blues, middle America roots and New York City swagger.
The Jamie McLean Band released their new album New Orleans Sessions (2019), following One and Only (2018), recorded at the famed Sound Emporium studios in Nashville. The album was produced by Ken Coomer of Wilco and features special guests Sam Bush and Jeff Coffin of Dave Matthews Band.
Recorded at the famed Sound Emporium studios in Nashville One and Only captures the band's strongest songwriting to date. The album was produced by Ken Coomer of Wilco and features special guests Sam Bush and Jeff Coffin of Dave Matthews Band. Live staples "Virginia" and "One and Only" finally get a beautiful studio performance and Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout the US and Canada this year!
The Jamie McLean Band has shared the stage with Gregg Allman, Aaron Neville, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Trombone Shorty, Los Lobos, Blues Traveler, Marc Broussard, Gov’t Mule among others. They have appeared at festivals Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Targhee Fest, Okeechobee Fest, Ottawa Blues Fest, Quebec City Summer Fest, and Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam.
McLean has enjoyed the sponsorship of Gibson Guitars, Fuchs Amplifiers, La Bella Strings, Blue Microphones, John Varvatos and Esquire Magazine.
“Jamie McLean Band is completely original and completely fabulous... The live version of this band is a three-dimensional experience not to be missed” – Hittin The Note
“A honkin' collection of Southern-style blues rock, Americana, and soul.... as bawdy as anything the Black Crowes tried to snag from The Faces or The Stones circa 'Sticky Fingers' and 'Exile on Main Street' and as groovy and gutsy as Bowie's 'Young Americans.'" - Charleston City Paper
