Jamie Cullum

Jamie Cullum’s willingness to defy convention has served him well during his lifelong pursuit of musical fulfillment.  He began playing piano and guitar at the age of eight; in his mid teens, Cullum was in & out of rock bands playing guitar, drums and piano; he was also the drummer in a hip-hop combo, eventually finding his way back to jazz through the samples used in his favorite hip-hop recordings; and Cullum spent the end of his teen years living in Paris, where he honed his skills performing in local jazz clubs before going on to become the biggest-selling British jazz artist of all time.  Cullum has won an enviable reputation as a magnetic live performer, playing freewheeling concerts that emphasize spontaneity and improvisation—and which rarely employ a set list.

Jamie is the host of the Jamie Cullum BBC Radio Show which can be heard Saturday’s at 11am and again on Monday’s at 9pm.
