JAMIE LEE WILSON: BACK ON THE GC, NEW ALBUM &; QUARANTINE INSPIRED!
With news from the Prime Minister that Australians would be subject to a new, supervised,
mandatory quarantine at an unknown hotel on arrival in Australia, what was already an incredibly
difficult time, became even more stressful for the LA based, Gold Coast born and bred artist,
Jamie Lee Wilson aka JVMIE.
After losing all foreseeable gigs and sessions due to the coronavirus pandemic, JVMIE made the
difficult decision to return to the Gold Coast from Los Angeles where she’s been working as a
musician and face 2 weeks in hotel quarantine.
On the day Jamie was set to fly out of LA, she came across the Rage Against the Virus grant
funded by HOTA Gold Coast and it sparked some inspiration.
“I was inspired to use my quarantine time creatively and work on an album of songs that not only
acknowledges the current tension in the world, but also inspires a sense of hope.”
While in hotel isolation JVMIE has been collaborating remotely with LA based film composer,
Lionel Cohen fusing elements of electronic music with cinematic textures.
“All In This Together” was inspired by the signs of hope coming out of these challenging times.
The album will be released as a series of singles with the first release, In The Deep End out May
