A little over a decade ago Scottish singer-songwriter Jamie Kimmett walked into a church in Los Angeles, California and gave his life to Jesus Christ. In the midst of pursuing a Pop career in Hollywood it turns out the God of the universe was pursuing a relationship with Jamie.
Now a passionate follower of Jesus, Jamie Kimmett travels the world sharing the Gospel in song and sermon to believers and non-believers alike.
From songwriting in a council estate in Scotland to writing with ‘TOTO’ legend Steve Porcaro. From busking on the streets of London to opening arena tours. From preaching in prisons to singing demos for Michael Jackson! Jamie Kimmett has done it all. A soul filled storyteller and self taught guitarist - Jamie’s debut EP “Prize Worth Fighting For” released on Sony Music has racked up over 50 Million streams across major platforms. With his signature vocal tone, beautiful pop melodies & raw lyrics Jamie’s lead single spoke to millions around the world while reaching Top 10 on the official Billboard “Christian Airplay Chart” (a weekly audience of 7 million at it’s peak). Earning a stellar reputation as a live performer and communicator Jamie has toured/opened for the biggest names in CCM such as Casting Crowns, Zach Williams, Lecrae, For King & Country and others.
While Jamie's giftedness is obvious to many he insists "As much as I love music and creating special moments to share with others..it's good to remember that it's not music, oratory or a well prepared message that changes a person! Only God & the power of His spirit through the Word can do that! Ideally the music or the speaker simply opens the hearers heart for the seed to enter the soil and take root." Jamie's story is the dramatic conversion of a young man pursuing the world but instead finds the greatest love of all through the cross of Gods son. This transformation of having his sins forgiven led him to turn down a Major label record deal and follow Gods plan for his life instead. Jamie studied Music at the Ian Tomlin School of Music in Edinburgh, Scotland & Bible Exposition at the “Cornhill Training Course” in London, England with the Proclamation Trust and has preached in many settings.
He shares "The greatest hope I have for my music & ministry is that it would be useful to God. Useful to bring others closer to Jesus."
Jamie is known for his Scottish accent, sense of humor and boldness for the Gospel. He has a big heart for others and each live event is full of fun, authenticity, and clear bible teaching. Jamie's passion for God is infectious and his guitar work, vocals & storytelling an experience like no other.
