Jamie McLean had a big decision to make in 2006. He could continue to tour the globe as the guitarist for New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band playing sets at Madison Square Garden, Bonnaroo, Japan’s Fuji Rock and working with the likes of Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews and Norah Jones. Or he could do it his way, take the road less traveled and begin to lead Jamie McLean Band. It seemed as though there was only one option.
“It was certainly a tough choice to leave my bread and butter gig but I could feel it in my heart that I needed to be singing and recording and performing my own music. I’ve never been happier!”
McLean has never looked back and he’s been relentlessly touring and recording with Jamie McLean Band. Jamie McLean Band, which also features Brian Griffin on drums and Ben Mars on bass has released 6 albums including Live at Gibson (2012) Sunday Morning (2011), Time Of My Life (2011), Completely (2010), American Heartache (2008) and This Time Around (2006).
