Jamie Cullum is a celebrated musician the world over with loyal fans in every corner of the globe. Over the last 18 years his legendary live shows have seen him perform at festivals alongside artists as diverse as Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, St Vincent and Lang Lang. In addition to his enduringly successful recording career, with nine albums under his belt, he has also established himself as a multi-award-winning music broadcaster. Jamie approaches all aspects of his career, as he has from the beginning, as both a fan and a student with seemingly boundless creativity and enthusiasm.


Jamie’s ninth studio album and most introspective work to date Taller arrived in 2019. The project went on to land in the top 20, be lauded by the likes of The Sunday Times and The Arts Desk for its ‘sublime’ songwriting and artistry and even pick up an Ivor Novello award for the prescient ‘Age of Anxiety’ from the project. Jamie commenced the electrifying Taller live experience in February 2020 and is set to resume the UK and European tour in 2021.

The triple Platinum-selling musician returned in the Summer of 2020 to share his roaring single ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’, In trademark Jamie style, ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’ examines the vulnerabilities expressed in relationships, pairing anthemic sonics with bittersweet storytelling.


Half a lifetime ago Jamie used his student loan to record his first LP, Heard It All Before. Since those days of playing four or five function gigs a week to pay his way through college, and turning his hand to any instrument that was needed in a variety of underground rock bands, the mix of talent, luck and sheer hard graft has been a constant feature of Jamie’s career.

The success of his major label breakthrough Twentysomething and its follow up Catching Tales saw him nominated for a Brit, Grammy and numerous other awards around the world, but the most important outcome of the five years he spent in the tireless promotion of these records is an enviable live career that is truly global. Cullum’s world tour took in over forty countries, nearly all of which he’s returned to many times. If you have seen him live, it’s hard to argue against the claim he is one of the best live entertainers working today. It is a reputation that, from Singapore to Sao Paolo and most places in-between has only continued to grow, culminating in a long-held ambition being fulfilled at that famous mud bath in Somerset: ‘A show on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival 18 years into my career was a highlight for me. It had been a long, unspoken goal to myself to bringing together as high a level of musicianship as I could muster, together with the stagecraft I’ve endeavoured to build up over the years. Like the artists I saw live formatively – Dr John, Prince, James Brown, Ben Folds, The Roots.’.

Jamie has even become the guest director of some of his favourite festivals, producing extraordinary shows such as orchestral specials at the Royal Albert Hall for two BBC Proms, the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic and a night of Jazz and Drum n’ Bass at The Forum in London.
