Known for his soulful grit and atmospheric highs, 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 Noah Gundersen have always spoken to me.“
Jamie’s work fuses together a combination of crafts, from stripped back lap style guitar to Indie folk / Pop. Working with multi instrumentalists in a four piece the live performances produce a sound that would seem greater than what you’d expect.
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 and touring and sharing stages with the likes of Nathan Ball, country duo Ward Thomas and the incredible Newton Faulkner. He is set to release a new EP next year ahead of his latest single ‘Smoke’.
