BRIT school graduate and R&B/dubstep-influenced singer/producer Jamie Woon will travel to Xi’an (North China) which is famously home to the First Emperor’s tomb and his terracotta warriors. Jamie will be exploring the local rock scene in Xi’an and sharing his musical ideas via a regular radio programme, performances and recording sessions. London based writer and performer Jamie Woon has just been nominated for a MOBO award, recognising his talent for innovative mixing electro beats, R&B, folk and soul sounds in his songs.
About his upcoming trip Jamie told us, “I’m grateful for the opportunity to live and work on new music in China. Knowing as little as I do about Chinese music, I’m excited about connecting with the ancient city of Xi’an and it’s current music scene and a mutual exchange of music, new and old. I plan to write new songs and recordings and am open to collaborating with people from the city.”
