November Newsletter from The Official Jamie McPherson
Welcome to the November edition of www.jamiemcpherson.com.au
NEW LOOK WEBSITE!
The big news for the month is that the website has had a makeover! New colour scheme, new layout, new photos and new pages. The first thing you will notice is the fantastic photos from Jeremy Watson taken during the Meeting Place photo shoot for the album. Hopefully during the year I can get some more photos from the shoot to put up on the site. Jeremy is such a great talent! There is also a nice photo of me taken by Michael Buddle underneath my personal message.
There is a new Lyrics/Chords page on the site where you can see all the words for my songs, and the chords are there too if you want to try your hand at my music. I’m not precious, so feel free to print them off and wow your friends at your next party or gig. There is also the new song, The Ballad of Lester Moore. As yet, unrecorded, but it is the cornerstone of my latest project.
I have also put the Meeting Place promo video underneath by bio if you want to check it out. Just remember that you will need to pause the player at the top of the page if you want to prevent conflicting sound.
I’ve redone the Buy section of the page so it is a dropdown menu. This should make it easier to get a copy of Meeting Place. You can buy direct from the website, or choose to buy from CD Baby via the new CD Baby widget. The big news here is that there is a price drop just in time for Christmas! Read below for further details.
The Photos section is now also a drop down menu. You can see some of the stunning photos by Jeremy Watson in the CD Cover Art and Photos by Jeremy Watson as well as the wonderful ‘Meeting Place’ painting for the back cover of the album done by Tikarma Vodicka. Also, there is a Live photo section with some new live photos and a Miscellaneous section that has a few photos of me with friends and loved ones.
The Press page is also now a drop down menu. Read all the latest articles in Articles About Jamie.
Use the dropdown menu on Music to Hear Jamie’s Songs. These are the same songs on the player up top, but with accompanying lyrics.
Tune In will tell you which radio stations have Meeting Place on their playlists, so if one of these is your local, why don’t you request a song?
Finally is the Links page. Use the dropdown menu for all the links for myself, Tikarma, Jeremy and also some of my very talented friends.

Looks like Santa came early this year!
What’s been happening?
Well folks, it’s been a busy year. The big news is that Tikarma and I have relocated our Ravenwood Studios to the other side of Strath. So, it’s been a mad time for both of us, moving and settling in to our new digs. Unfortunately, my recording studio is not up and running yet, pending the arrival of a new computer and software, but in the mean time, it will leave me plenty of time for songwriting for my new project, entitled The Ballad of Lester Moore. I’ll keep you updated as it progresses.
There’s been many a great show happening throughout the year. I had a great CD launch at The Singing Gallery with some brilliant and talented friends to help me celebrate. There were captivating and touching performances by Tikarma Vodicka, Dave Clark, Bob Malloy, The Self Preservation Society and Pasquale. The highlight of the night for me was performing Folsom Prison Blues with Tristan Newsome and Girl From the North Country with Tim Inglis. The numbers were down, but we had a great day! A BIG thank you for every one who came along and to those that wowed us with their stunning performances!
There were also great shows at The Mannum Hotel, Bliss Organic Cafe, The Avoca Hotel, The Adelaide Convention Centre, Kym Maree’s Cancer Fundraiser and The Foster, Relative & Kinship Carers Family Fun Day where I also got to run the buskers corner and have a lot of fun with the kids busking for the first time.
The album has been doing well. It seems to be popping up everywhere on the net all around the world. From Japan to Norway and everywhere in between. I’ve even seen the songs for download as ringtones on the net!
Tikarma has ben keeping herself busy re-doing her website and it coming along beautifuly! Unfortunately, such is her great talent, she is a very prolific writer and it will take her some time to re-do all of her poetry archives. But, it’s been a great joy revisiting these beautiful poems as I check out her progress. Such a great talent! She has also done a wonderful painting to help raise money for the Cancer Council Australia. You can see all her wonderful work at www.tikarmavodicka.com or click on one of her links from my website.
So, that’s it for November. Wishing you all a brilliant and musical month and remember to head on over to the site to check it out.
