Jamie Lidell Biography

Jamie Lidell (born 18 September 1973 in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, England) is a musician and soul singer living in Berlin. He also has a group with Cristian Vogel called Super_Collider.

Lidell is known for layering tracks made with his voice into a microphone and performing the percussion and melody as a sequenced, beatboxing one-man band. Then over his augmented voices, he sings soul-inspired songs. This exercise makes for energetic live performances. Lidell has become renowned for his diverse range of genre-exploration. Following the release of his latest album, JIM, Lidell commented,
I want it to be about music, I think every musician does. But I think inevitably it ends up becoming about personality, which is what gives rise to the music, so people want to make sure that they get a bit of both. The more things do well, the more people want to know why it does well.


His song "Multiply" was used on the television show Grey's Anatomy, and was also included on its second soundtrack. Another song from his album Multiply, "A Little Bit More", was featured in a series of commercials for the U.S. retailer Target.

He often collaborates with Canadian musicians such as Gonzales, Feist and Mocky. He has also recently collaborated with British electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco for the song "Off The Map".

In early 2009, Lidell's JIM won in The 8th Annual Independent Music Awards for Best Pop/Rock Album.

In 2009 he contributed a cover of a Grizzly Bear song to the Warp20 (Recreated) compilation, as well as having his song "A Little Bit More" covered by Tim Exile.
