A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

PEffervescent, adorably cute and with a magnetic charm and charisma, pint sized British singer songwriter musician Sammie Jay, can blow a tune with so much soul you could be mistaken for thinking she came from the deep south. With hair-raising vocals malleable enough to encompass several genres of music,  there is nothing tiny about this little lady's musical abilities, and when her petite frame takes to the stage hold onto your hats cause you're in for a ride.

Making her London West End debut, playing 'little Cosette' at the tender age of 7yrs, in the hit musical Les Miserables at the Palace theatre, Shaftsbury Avenue. Followed by an appearance on  'The Micheal Barrymore Show' (LWT) & the Fundraising spectacular 'Children in Need' (BBC)....over the following few years.

By the age of 11yrs Sammie was across the pond performing in Nashville. Highlights include performing  solo on the prestigious 'Grand Ole Opry' & Teaming up and singing a duet with the amazingly talented rock vocalist 'Paul Rodgers', lead singer of 'Free' &  'Bad Company' at Itchycoo Park Music Festival, Manchester Tennessee. In Los Angeles, Sammie Jay continued writing and recording her own music, played regularly at universal studios in City Walk including her own concerts on The Five Towers main stage, fronting her own band. & played 'Jenny Tinkler' on Nickelodeons TV show Big Time Rush.

In Sammie Jay's own words "I do what I do because I love it with a passion. I could never grow tired of the process of creating music and writing songs. It is awesome that I get to connect and touch the hearts of so many people through my music. Be it singing to a small bunch of people or if I am in a huge Arena in front of thousands I just live and breath the melody and lyrics of a good song. I have been inspired by many wonderful artists such as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston & Stevie Wonder. and if I am not at my keyboard writing a new song, or strumming on my guitar and performing. Then I am probably hitting the dance floor somewhere instead, because music is in my bones!"

One of the highlights of returning back to her home town of London was a recent performance at the world famous London Palladium, when she was invited to be the opening act for soul RnB group Shalamar and enjoyed performing a set of her original self penned tunes. Loving the hustle and bustle of London Town. Sammie can often be found trying out her new songs and favourite classics to amazing audiences at Covent Garden,  Southbank and Trafalgar Square. Becoming known as the Bare foot street performer, with her ever so popular video singing Killing me Slowly, which has gone viral through social media, Sammie shows how to sing from the heart, regardless of circumstances, if you do what you love, you will always be happy, large Arena or barefoot on the streets, in fact she says, it is the street performing which really helps you to feel connected as it is more up close and personal.  A big lover of life, Sammie wonders at all the amazing opportunities that unfold. Always excited for the next new adventure. She loves to travel, and is often invited to sing at weddings, corporate events, casinos etc. Across the UK and overseas. Performances include The Sporting Monte Carlo, The Hippodrome London, The 02, Broadway theatre Peterborough, Annabeles members club London, The Jazz Cafe at the Pheasantry London...   Sammie Jay is currently working and writing material for her new album, but still finds time for her daily yoga practice which she says is so good for the mind, body and soul.
