Known for his atmospheric highs and soulful grit, Devon’s Jamie Yost blends his own take on poetic lyricism and introspective songwriting. His performances are not shy of raw emotion with comparisons to Daughter, Bon Iver and Matt Corby.
Finding inspiration in family, friends and growing up in the sea side town of Torquay, Jamie draws upon personal experiences to write. Themes of retrospect and introspect inspire Yost to produce material that comes from a very personal space. “Passionate performances with Artists completely lost in their music have always inspired me to create. Artists like Ben Howard, Dermot Kennedy and Lucy Rose have always spoken to me.“
Jamie’s work fuses together a combination of crafts, from stripped back lap style guitar to progressive psychedelic folk. Working with multi instrumentalists in a three piece the live performances produce a sound that would seem much greater than what you’d expect from a trio.
Based in Plymouth the singer songwriter spent 2017 writing and recording his debut EP ‘Aurora’ which released on April 27th 18’ with a sell-out show at The Barbican Theatre. Yost has since spent the last year recording, touring and sharing stages with the likes of indie folks Nathan Ball, Country duo Ward Thomas and pop sensation Newton Faulkner. He is set to release a new EP next year ahead of his most recent single Smoke.
“Jamie is so mature in writing and singing that we might think he's been making music for decades.”
Music For Your Heart
“Blending folk, alt-pop, soul and a slither of Americana, Jamie Yost makes music designed to unlock the emotions and soothe the open wounds so whatever ails you right now, get yourself some of this on prescription.”
