Jamie Burnham is a “bitter pill in a soothing package”. Imagine a Tim Burton movie shaken down with a Thomas Pynchon novel and the result is Alt Country with a gothic edge.

With her deceptively lo-fi approach of lone girl with guitar, she manages to create an atmosphere of landscapes, scenery and storytelling that takes her listeners to unforeseen places.
