JAMIE KIMMETT was born and raised on the west coast of Scotland, in the working class town of Kilmarnock. As a teenager, Jamie was scouted by the professional soccer team Celtic FC and was part of the Scottish national youth squad until age 16; when his father gave him a guitar and music became his passion. Once Jamie graduated from music school, record labels started to take notice of his unique, soulful voice and flew him to Los Angeles to meet with them. While in LA, Jamie accepted an invitation from a friend to attend church, something he had rarely done while growing up. In that church, Jamie’s eyes were opened to the Gospel and he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ. Jamie now resides in Nashville, TN, signed to Provident Label Group (Sony Music) alongside artists such as Casting Crowns, Third Day, Matt Maher, Tenth Avenue North and more.
Jamie’s talents of singing, songwriting and preaching come together with one mission in mind, to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with all audiences. Jamie is fresh off a tour with Grammy Award-winning artist Zach Williams (ChainBreaker Spring Revival Tour), where nightly Jamie received an overwhelming response, including standing ovations, to his music and message. He is now aiming for his debut album release in early 2019.
