Jamie Flegg, a gifted singer/songwriter, is known for combining witty lyrics with an infectious flow and catchy melodies that will have you singing along in no time. Jamie's "rap-like" style is unique and refreshing in the genre of 'singer/songwriters' and has really starting turning heads. His first single released to radio achieved top 10 status in western Canada and reached an audience of 1.4 million listeners, while his engaging live performances are providing him with ever-growing return audiences. In May 2011 Jamie was awarded "Performing Artist of the Year" from his hometown Oakville, Ontario.

While attending university for Life Sciences Jamie spent countless hours playing guitar and writing lyrics. Those four years spent writing, practicing, and performing deepened Jamie's love for music and honed his skills, leading him to pursue a career as a musician.

In early 2009 Jamie released his first independently produced six-song acoustic EP and has sold approximately 1000 -both hardcopy (off stage) and digitally.

Recently (June 2011) Jamie released his first professional studio album "Life Science" with famed producer Bill Bell (Justin Nozuka, Jason Mraz, Tom Cochrane etc). The 8-Track record is being very highly received by fans and critics alike!

Jamie will be heading out west to Calgary for the summer of 2011 where he will be playing weekly live performances to promote the new album and build his western Canadian fan-base!

Life for a Ride

Written By: Jamie Flegg

Life For a Ride

I’m thinking top 40, and I’m a 40 deep
Cause even though it pays to dream, I can’t afford to sleep
We’re all just tryin’ to make it, we’re following the lights,
I seize the day but they say it happens over night

I’m doin’ what I can, instead of what I should
I got an education but I’m chasin’ Hollywood
So take a leap of faith, and on the count of three
If we don’t make it then we’ll chalk it up to destiny

Oh well I’m a take this life for a ride now
And I won’t stop at the sky, no (x2)

I’m thinking top 20, I’m only 23
So I’ve been thinking bout a lot of things I wanna be
I’ve lived a quarter life, but now my quarter’s gone
So I’ve been high, had lows, and then I’ve soldiered on

I’ve learned to never settle, cause that’s when you regret it
You can write that down one day, they’ll say I said it
I’m soakin’ up the love, I’m rinsin’ out the hate
I’m swimming in a sea of good pursuing great and I

Oh well I’m a take this life for a ride now
And I won’t stop at the sky, no (x2)

Lately I’ve been thinkin’, I’ve been thinkin’ too much
So I’ve been drinkin’ too much, and I
Well I try not to get caught in the numbers and such
And all my blunders and such, well
If you really wanna live the life you dream of at night
You better dream in the light, boy
Cause nobody’s gonna dream for you right, you gotta continue to fight

Cause maybe one day they’ll say hey look at you
You’re lucky you’re a star I just wanna be one too
But they missed all the years of the sweat and the tears
And the fear of never makin’ it rejected by your peers
But still I persevere, week after week
Cause I know my flow’s so clean, if you rubbed it, it would squeak
And it speaks for itself so they pay to hear my speak
Never seen a singer/songwriter rap, so unique
So you seek something else form this life so do I
So do yourself a favor kid and take it for a ride, I

Oh well I’m a take this life for a ride now
And I won’t stop at the sky, no (x2)

Girl On My Mind

Written By: Jamie Flegg

Girl On My Mind

I got a girl on my mind, gonna’ meet her in time,
Yeah she’s cool but sweet and hard to find.
She looks sexy when she wakes up cause’ she barely uses make-up,
Maybe just a bit around her eyes.
She wears T-shirts that fit and jeans below her hips,
Classic, classy Style.
And the best part about her is that I know,
When I meet her she gon’ make me smile,
She’s gon’ make me smile,
Oh I know that she can make me smile

I got a girl on my mind, I’m gon’ meet her in time,
When I do my heart will stop.
She’s a red light wasn’t even blinkin’
But I checked my phone at least eleven times before to see if she’d called
She wears high heels you see, she’s still not as tall as me,
She’s as humble as she is wild
And the best part about her’s that I know,
When I meet her she’s gon’ make me smile,
She’s gon’ make me smile,
Oh I know that she can make me smile

Check it out,
Well girl I checked my phone like at least ten times,
That red light wasn’t even blinkin’ like at least ten times
I wrote at least ten rhymes, that’s like at least ten lines,
I haven’t even met you yet so that’s at least ten lies.
Baby I’ve never been one to believe in love at first sight,
That’s right, I think you need to know a girl to love her right.
But my optimism’s stoppin’ all the logic that comes poppin’
Up into my head because the thought of you just seems so good
And baby I can’t wait to be the one to love ya, love ya, love ya,
Till’ you love me and our love is understood.
If I could be so bold as to ask you not to be so cold,
Cause’ I need warmin’ up so come and find me soon.
Baby, baby you could be my lady, lady,
We could dance all night and we could sleep till’ noon

I got a girl on my mind, I’m gon’ meet her in time, Oh she’s so hard to find.
Well she’s perfectly imperfect and it’s worth it
Just to see all of her imperfections work with mine.
Intertwined like string, we may not dig all the same things,
but we dig each other’s groove.
And the best part about her is that I know, maybe she has me on her mind too, oh yeah.
I got a girl on my mind,
Come find me girl, yeah you know I gotta’ find you
I got a girl on my mind,
Come find me girl, stop takin’ your time
I got a girl on my mind,
Come find me girl, I just don’t know where to find you
I got a girl on my mind,
Come find me girl, because you’re on my mind

Come and find me cause’ I’ve been lookin’ around,
I can see you in my head but I still can’t make out your smile,
I can see you in my head but I, don’t even know your name.
So if it’s all the same why don’t ya,
Come and find me, come and find me soon,
We can go dancin’ all night or we could sleep till’ noon,
We could laugh at all the people who say that good love is hard to find.
I got a girl on my mind.

Take You Home

Written By: Jamie Flegg

Take You Home

Verse:
Allow myself to introduce you to the man
Who thinks that you’re the kind of girl he’d love to understand
See I’ve been throwing glances at you hoping that one lands
Cause’ if I catch your eye I’ll catch your whole attention span
So let me know the plan, cause’ know its getting late
Now it’s now or never, never, never sounded great
So if you ever really thought about believing fate
Baby, now is not the time to wait

Pre-chorus:
Cause’ we are all just looking for something to call our own
Oh baby, I’d love to take you home

Chorus:
I wanna take you home (x2)
I wanna take you..

Verse:
To my spot I got a place down the street
I’ll give you a piggyback, you don’t have to use your feet
We don’t have to be discreet, cause’ you’re the kind of girl
That I wear on my arm and I share with the world yup!
I know you’re all did but let’s get undone
I know that you’re a ten but maybe you could be the one
Before we get to numbers lets get into having fun
Cause’ babygirl I swear we’ve just begun

Pre-Chorus

Chorus:
I wanna take you home (x3)
Oh at least then we won’t have to be alone,
I wanna take you..

Bridge:
Oh, let’s get out of here
I can’t wait to make those clothes disappear
We are all just looking for something to call our own
Oh baby I want to take you, oh baby I’d love..

CHORUS

Real World

Written By: Jamie Flegg

Real World

Do you believe that there’s a man in the sky
Well if I did, I believe I’d ask him why,
Some people got it figured out and some get high,
We all live, laugh and love and sometimes we cry.
Now we’re supposed to see the bigger picture why can’t I?
I’m just tryin’ to live the life before it passes me by.
If destiny’s decided then we’re livin’ a lie
And if we never made it we gave it a hell of a try

We’re so close to the real world, not close enough to care.
I won’t worry bout’ tomorrow, cause I know I’ll see you there.
And we’ll share some laughs about the lives that we’re livin’ today.
So close to the real world, but I feel so far away.

Whoever said that everyone should follow their dreams,
Forgot to mention it’s not as easy as it seems.
So put your hands up cause’ you’ve gotta’ believe,
Yeah put your hands up and roll up your sleeves.

CHORUS

Away I go, oh up, up and away
I’m gonna’ fly so high, I know
Till’ I find the things I’m tryin’ to find,
And in time I will make it on my own,
But I’ve kinda’ been enjoying the ride,
Though the road is not paved in no gold,
I know, but I never wanna’ get old

Oh, oh, oh, oh ,oh ,oh ,oh I never wanna’ get old (x2)

Now we’re so close but so far, in so many ways,
I got my calendar and I’ve been throwin’ X’s on days.
I guess unless we’re throwin’ horseshoes and grenades,
Close will only count when Then becomes the present and fades.
But I’m not done livin’ today

CHORUS

So close, but I feel so far away
You’ve got to, you’ve got to, you’ve got to hold on
But I feel so far away
Hold on, baby hold on
You’ve got to, you’ve got to, you’ve got to hold on
Cause I feel so far away

Lie To Me

Written By: Jamie Flegg

Lie To Me

Verse
I’ve never been that into waitin’ my impatient mind is racing with thought
Tell me what to do to make some sense I’ll trade you every single dollar I’ve got
So she says its part of being human and there’s no such thing as meant to be
I’m thinkin’ that you think too much just trust your intuition kid and then you’ll see

Pre-Chorus
What am I doing, and where are we going now?
Don’t care what the truth is, just tell me that I’ll make it somehow.
And maybe my head is a little too far up in the clouds
But for now, just lie to me and..

Chorus
Tell me everything is gonna be alright
Tell me I’ll get everything I want in life
Tell me what I wanna hear I’m asking you to lie to me, lie to me, yeah.

Verse
I’ve never been that into ‘what-if’ but I’m bluffin’ if I’m talkin’ bout’ you
And baby you might think I think you’re crazy lately I think I might be crazy too
And you know that I wear my few emotions on the sleeves of every shirt I own
And even though we fake it, lets just face it, we’re all petrified of being alone

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge
I’ve got these words in my head, like meant to be and destiny and should have done instead
All I really want is just to live with no regrets, its getting more impossible the older that I get
I used to worry, you’ve got so much time is what they’d say
But damn I swear that time just seems to speed up every day
I know where I wanna be just haven’t found the way, tell me everything’s alright, tell me everything’s okay

Pre-Chorus
