“I’m not a prophet, nor a king, I have no soldiers, so I sing” songs that are sometimes saturnine, forging enigmatic, sometimes experimental, mercurial music that welds serrated electric or earthy acoustic blues-infused, detuned guitar to chimerical and quixotic lyrics or folkish storytelling, often with a sonic backdrop of unusual percussion, available instruments and unexpected noises and effects.

“I’m not a prophet, nor a king, I have no soldiers, so I sing” songs that are sometimes saturnine, forging enigmatic, sometimes experimental, mercurial music that welds serrated electric or earthy acoustic blues-infused, detuned guitar to chimerical and quixotic lyrics or folkish storytelling, often with a sonic backdrop of unusual percussion, available instruments and unexpected noises and effects. Originally from the granite city of Aberdeen and now based in the glaswegian city of Glasgow Jamie makes up music, writes and sings songs, plays acoustic and electric guitars from America and unhygienic harmonicas from a flea market in Berlin. He clangs brass candlesticks or rattles a floor tom with pencils. Sometimes he plays the fake bass guitar that Neil gave him or the old accordion that Norman gave him. He uses other instruments, household objects or electronics when it seems like the thing to do.

His band ‘The Flaming Jets’ help him make a bigger noise than he can on his own using different arrays of acoustic and electric instruments. Jamie's released two albums, a remix album (with a little help from his friends) and a live mini album of the music he's made up, some of it played solo and some with the help of the Flaming Jets. Among various live escapades he's been fortunate enough to have opened for Joan Armatrading and Malcolm Middleton as well as having appeared on the Danny Kyle stage at Celtic Connections, the Rhythms of the World Festival and at the Tartan Heart festival at Belladrum. “Glimmering and beautifully arranged…” – The List “It’s an age where if it ain’t pop, it ain’t right. However, it is incredibly refreshing when an artist comes along, defies current musical ideologies and decides to create what they want to create. In the case of “Tales from the Cuckoo’s Nest”, it is endearing to hear a body of work that seems to defy boundaries, sounds timeless and could be considered current at any period of world music.” - Buzz Stop “Some may call it alt-folk, but that as a descriptive term for it falls short of really conveying the breadth of what is on offer.

There's some electronica, jazz, Americana, folk, celtic meanderings and so much more. If I was to be pushed to use one word to describe the music I would gravitate towards graceful. There's a warmth to each song, and there's some raw honesty too. There's also a softness to it all that shouldn't be mistaken for weakness. While so many troubadours are aiming for heartfelt and come across as twee Jamie has hit the bullseye with this…” - It’s a XXXX Thing “In an era where pop music is considerably dominant, it is liberating to see new talent, especially Scottish talent, releasing music that offers authentic musicianship.

Flett delivers a selection of understated songs which exhibit a timeless sound and furthermore indicate his considerable talent for portraying different images and tales through the use of music…” - Fishinasub Read more on Last.fm.
