Jaime Wyatt and The Bang Bang's
Jaime Wyatt is a striking figure who walks the Earth with an old soul. Her repertoire tells stories of heartbreak and redemption, delivered by a voice that is both rich and magnetic. Comparisons are frequently drawn to Chrissie Hynde, Stevie Nicks and at times she has been anointed a female Tom Petty. Wyatt is a dynamic performer, dually noted as a powerhouse singer and stellar guitar player, sailing between vintage 60’s and 70’s rock n roll anthems and heartfelt ballads of love and confusion.
Originally discovered by Skip Williamson of LA indie label Lakeshore Records while still living in her hometown of Tacoma, Washington, she signed her first recording contract at 17. Her Lakeshore Records self-titled EP was produced by Pete Droge, and delivered a windfall with each and every song receiving placement in a major motion picture or soundtrack, some of which included Wicker Park (“Lightswitch"), Midnight Meat Train (song title), and Feast of Love (song title). The track "Lightswitch" became a hit at college and indie radio in the U.S., alongside at stations across the European continent. Tiffany, of 80's pop radio fame, covered her composition "Mind Candy” on her album Just Me. Last year, a song Wyatt penned with Pete Droge and Elaine Summers was featured on ABC’s hit TV show Nashville.
Wyatt is a prolific songwriter and musician who maintains a busy writing and touring schedule. She released two EP’s with the group American Bloomers, and last year released a full-length album as a member of the female Americana trio CALICO.
Singer / Songwriter / Guitarist Jaime Wyatt is currently finishing an album recorded in her Los Angeles home with Producer Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams).
