In This Episode
- We play a guessing game with Jamie involving the billboard charts (she does better than David)
- Jamie tells us the origins of her music and moving to Nashville from Chicago (go Sox – we have to)
- The film Once gets mentioned, more than once (drum hit here)
- “Slow Down” is played by Jamie acoustically. Check out the original to see two different sides.
- We learn about how the name “Tedious and Brief” was part of the S-Town podcast and get some Shakespeare thrown in.
Jamie Jacobsen is an indie pop songwriter who heads up the groovy, slickly produced project Tedious & Brief. Jacobsen took up guitar and songwriting at a young age. She has mentioned her earliest influences include Stevie Ray Vaughn and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, which has evolved into a more polished sound featuring airy synth elements and vocals akin to Maggie Rogers or Lorde.
Her debut single “Papercuts”, set the mood for the rest of Tedious & Brief’s debut self-titled EP. They have also released a live album featuring their performance on Audiotree live and several singles, including “Not That Deep”, “Middle Class” and most recently “Tired Work”.
