Returning to Australia & New Zealand this April

“This time round, he’s essentially the same performer, but with more confidence, a better band and a much better show.” The Independent, January 2006

Jamie Cullum is well known for his brilliant live performances. Australia and New Zealand first discovered this nearly two years ago when the lively musician swept through Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland for a brief but successful sold-out tour.

The Frontier Touring Company is now delighted to announce a return tour for Jamie Cullum to our shores. In addition to playing at both the West and East Coast Blues n Roots Festivals in Perth and Byron Bay, Jamie is also confirmed to perform headline shows in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.

Jamie has always had a strong affinity with music. And whilst he may be classed as a jazz artist, his range is in fact far more extensive, embracing everything from pop, rock, dance and funk to more classical styles. “Jazz is the greatest platform to do whatever you want. People ask why I play jazz. It’s because you can take it to so many different places.”

Jamie’s latest collection of tunes Catching Tales (out now through Universal Music) has attracted widespread critical acclaim. The album features trademark takes on old favourites, along with some of Jamie’s own works. Of the album, USA Today gushed “This collection of taut, rhythmically savvy performances finds Cullum maturing as a singer and songwriter… At a time when intuitive song interpreters and craftsmen seem in short supply, Cullum is shaping up as a double treat.”

But it is onstage that Jamie is at his best. His natural charisma, energy and charm render him one very accomplished performer.

“Opening with The Wind Cries Mary, he weaves from soulful, gritty vocals to hammering percussively at the piano in a way that can only be described as manic. It’s immediately apparent why he’s become so successful: not only is he a superb musician and songwriter, blessed with a phenomenal voice; not only is he a young artist in what’s largely seen as an old man’s world, he has passion – and in spades.” www.bbc.co.uk, November 2005

“Jamie Cullum sells records like a pop star… He looks like a pop star… And like most pop stars, he doesn’t read music. But, as demonstrated at Albert Hall, his youthful, populist approach nevertheless remains underpinned by the melodic instincts and consummate technique of a virtuoso jazz musician.”

The Times, November 2005

Don’t miss Jamie at his best this April with support from Australia’s own Mark Sholtez.
