Sound description: Funky, folky, moody, mixing acoustic guitar and percussion with a modern soundscape of loops, samples and ambient keys. Think the sonic landscape of Seal, Dido, and the lighter side of Alanis Morissette.
RIYL: Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, Eva Cassidy, Sara Bareilles, Ben Harper

Jamie’s musical pedigree runs deep. From a long line of musical women, Green’s grandmother and great aunts were the Big Band-era jazz vocalists, the King Sisters, while her mother was a soloist in the ‘60s girl group The Four King Cousins. Green joined the King Family roadshow and TV specials at the tender young age of six, learning harmonies from her mother by singing to Steely Dan, the Eagles, and Earth, Wind & Fire. As an adult, Green carried on the family’s musical legacy— if with a bit more edge—as a contemporary singer-songwriter in her own right, winning two L.A. Music Awards in the “Indie Pop” and
“Adult Alternative” Album of the Year categories and multiple honors from national and international songwriting competitions. She has been living in S.B. since 2007, playing various venues such as the Biltmore Hotel, Carr Winery, Oreana Winery, SOhO, and local coffee houses.
