Sarah Jamieson isn’t just your average pretty face and talented star potential artist, she’s relatable to significant amount of everyday struggles that we all endure. Quoting Sarah, the singer says;
“I’m human, I'm awkward, I make mistakes, and I have lots of insecurities. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression. I’m a perfectionist. I'm far too hard on myself. I’ve failed terribly at things. And the list goes on... I've spent most of my life trying to be like everyone else. To fit the norm. To go with the flow. To not be the awkward, imperfect person I am.But if I've learned anything from a lifetime of mistakes, it's that who we are IS enough. It's time to take off our masks and be vulnerable. Be bold, love yourself, make tons of mistakes, and share your beauty with the world.”
Depression, anxiety, and insecurities are something everyday people experience and more common in the younger/growing generation. (Even myself) her ability to allocate something intimate and personal to her makes her more of an authentic individual rather than a superficial artist. Now, besides her incredibly alluring honesty and charisma, her talent is remarkable, her cover of “I’ll Be There” displayed solid vocals from start to finish. My favorite part nonetheless was where she sings “I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna come through” she takes ’Through’ into a riveting break between head voice and falsetto that just captivates your attention fully. Without a single flaw noticeable in her singing, you can tell Sarah Jamieson has spent some time perfecting her vocals for her to deliver us a raw cover where you can barely point out any unacceptable notes or pitch inaccuracy. She presented us the emotion of the song and connected with her singing, assisting her into carrying her sound from her voice into her mic, and from her mic into our ears and from our ears into our head, remembering the beautiful foghorn like voice. Check out her cover of “I’ll Be There” and applaud Sarah for her natural born gift.
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi everyone! My name is Sarah Jamieson. Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me a bit! I really appreciate it. I am a singer/songwriter, as well as a nurse. A little about me...I’m human, I'm awkward, I make mistakes, and I have lots of insecurities. I’m a perfectionist. I'm far too hard on myself. I’ve failed terribly at things. And the list goes on... But I hope that by sharing my story and my music, I can help heal, inspire, and strengthen others. We can all go on this crazy journey of life together.
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
Music has been a constant throughout my entire life. I’ve wanted to sing since I was a little girl. I remember riding in the car as a little kid, belting my heart out to Shania Twain, pretending all the cars driving by were listening to me. Music has been a way to express myself, to work through the hard times in life and to celebrate the happy ones. I started taking singing lessons and guitar lessons around the age of 13. Then I went on to sing in musicals, competitions, choir, church, weddings, and funerals. While I was in nursing school, I put my music on hold. But I missed it. I felt a void in my life. And I realized something; I’ve always been hesitant to put my full effort into singing because I am so afraid of failing at the thing I care about most. However, with realization of this, it was almost freeing and I decided that I couldn’t put my music off any longer, even if I wanted to. Every part of my being was begging me to come back to music. Fast forward to today: I have a YouTube channel, a website, I’ve written numerous songs, all with the goal to get a record deal and reach more people. There is something about the unknown in life that is terrifying, but also thrilling at the same time. I can’t wait to see where it takes me.
Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
I do! It’s one of the most passionate things I do. I typically write with my guitar. I usually like to write in the moment, (if I’m feeling very upset about something or happy, etc.) but sometimes I table it and write later. I sometimes come up with melodies while I’m driving in the car or lying in bed trying to fall asleep, so I’ll record it on my phone and return to it at a different time. Some of the best songs I’ve written were done in 20 min or less.
We really love your new song I'll Be There! Can you tell us a bit about it?
I love to do research. In my research, I’ve found that many artists start out by singing covers. I mean it makes sense. No one wants to listen to some random girl singing some song she wrote… but if some random girl slays a cover of Halsey or Marren Morris, then everyone wants to hear it. That’s why my YouTube channel currently consists of covers. I’m saving my original work for a potential record deal some day. Last week, I sang a cover of “I’ll Be There” by Jess Glynne. When I first heard this song, I fell in love with it. Not only is it a beautiful song, but I love this song for its meaning. I may interpret it differently than what’s intended, but when I sing this song, it takes me to those moments in my life where people I love have been hurt, deeply hurt. It takes me to a few specific moments in my life, where I’ve poured my heart out to people, wishing I could take their pain away and put it on myself. No matter what happens, I will be there I will be by their side. Maybe I can’t understand what they are going through but I’m here. However, I hope that it can reach more people than just those I’m thinking of. I hope no matter what you are going through in this moment, you can hear this song and feel some comfort.
What are three things you’d love your fans to know about you?
I have a huge heart for others
Any upcoming shows? For someone who hasn’t seen you live yet, how would you describe your performance?
Sadly not Performing is one of my favorite parts of being a musician. Recently, I‘ve been putting all my effort into promoting my YouTube channel, getting as much content out as possible, writing new music, creating a website, and many other non-exciting things. All of which, have pulled away from time spent booking live performances. However, my goal for this next month is to start booking more gigs. It’s time to perform again. My performances are engaging, emotional, and energized.
What’s next for you?
I’m going to continue promoting my music and getting my name out there. My dream would be to get a record deal and record an album of my own.
