Lead singer/songwriter and music producer for British Alternative Rock Band Heyzeus. 4 Million + Video Views, 100K+ Streams on Spotify. Happy to lay down some killer lead rock vocals, write you a top line, or help you produce a full on rock track with all instrumentation. New to Soundbetter =)
My name's Jamie Andrew.
I'm a singer/songwriter/guitarist, and music producer based on the Scottish Borders.
I write and produce all the music for my alternative rock band 'Heyzeus'.
My partner Jess, often described as the 'female Dave Grohl' is an incredible drummer, and can also help you if you need some awesome punchy drums recorded for your track.
I have a cool little home studio with all pro gear, where I write, record and produce all the Heyzeus music, as well as other musicians projects I'm currently working on.
I've taken my music all over the world, including some top gigs at places like the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, and Ibiza Rocks.
My real talent and best service for you would be my vocal ability, and my songwriting. So If you have a track you'd like some awesome killer lead vocals on, I'm your man! Vocally I often draw comparisons to Kelly Jones from the Stereophonics, Kurt Cobain and Layne Stayley.
I'm new to sound better but have already had the privilege to work with some top guys on here including Marc Urselli (Foo Fighters, U2) and Andres Mayo (2 Time Grammy Winner)
Looking forward to connecting and creating some awesome music together.
Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.
