Album Intro

Jamie Woon's debut album 'Mirrorwriting' has been three years in the making...and a lifetime in the writing. These are twelve pitch-perfect gems that combine forward-thinking production with beautifully crafted songs; a sonic support-system that frames and holds Woon's luminous voice in all the right places. It's intimate without being obvious, emotional without being syrupy and honest without being confessional, where the basic touchstones of human emotion get a fresh and soulful airing.

This, he says, is a calming record, made for himself and for other people. He's crafted a raft of dreamy, unsettled melancholy, pieces of music which try to shake off anxiety by finding a groove and songs that aim to evoke inscrutable things. Oh, and Woon claims there are at least four songs about going for a walk.

'Mirrorwriting' is a debut that's ripe for that transition from niche to mainstream. It's a deeply personal record that draws from R'nB, folk, '80s and '90s soul and pop, UK bass culture and the blues. It digs into emotions we all feel and sends them spinning, just-recognisable, back to us. "It's personal, almost therapeutic. I'm quite a private person and I don't set out to talk about my business in public but when songs are done you can't get around it. They are like a code, and all you need is a mirror to read it."

Malaysian Heritage
Jamie Woon has received a lot of media attention from local Malaysian media, as he has Malaysian heritage with his roots in malacca. This is a strong selling point as most international artist with Malaysian roots (i.e Zee Avi) has found tremendous success with local urban listeners.
