Indie Ville TV #78 Swedish Sensation Jamie Meyer has all of us “Gone Crazy”

Written by K.L. Graham

Hailing from Sweden, home of Max Martin and Dr. Luke it’s no wonder that Jamie Meyer’s soft 
country sound is pumped up with infectious hints of bubbly pop music. 

 In person, Jamie is soft spoken and effortlessly cool, the kind of guy you just want to get to 
know, and luckily with his new EP “Gone Crazy” and songs like “There’s Only Plan A” you can.

Originally from Hising Island Sweden, Jamie first came to America in 2001. “The first time my 
feet touched American soil is a moment I’ll never forget.” Another favorite moment of Jamie’s is 
“When I waved my Grandpa goodbye for the last time at the nursing home in my little town in 
Sweden. We had some good final moments.”

It’s clear in both his music and person, Meyer, although steely eyed and chic-ly clad is an 
effervescent sweetheart. 

But don’t let his tender side fool you, Jamie’s epic guitar skills and hard work have won him 
Best Singer/Songwriter at the L.A. Music Awards in Hollywood. He was also a Music Awards 
Nominee for Best Country Song and Best New Artist in Sweden.  Meyer has also toured with 
Westlife, and Lady Antellbellum on their Own The Night Tour. Jamie has even shared festival 
stages with Rascal Flatts, LeAnne Rimes, and Dwight Yoakam.

With accolades and huge names like that, along with not one but four performances at the 
BlueBird Café, it’s clear America, and country music have welcomed Jamie to the scene with 
open arms.

According to Jamie it’s “The Sound, the storytelling, the legacy” of country/pop music that drew 
him to it, and the US.  It’s clear with songs like “Gone Crazy” and “Can’t Stop Now” he’s 
destined for Music City’s bright spotlight.

Still working as an independent musician…Jamie’s favorite part: “I get to pick the track list on 
the album.” His commitment to his music and message is powerful.  “I'm about to release a new 
video of a song called "Holy Ground To Me" and it's speaking about where I'm from and the 
people who have had a huge impact in my life.”

Part rock, part sweetheart, all country, whether Jamie Meyer is singing “Think About Leavin’” 
or using one of his favorite Swedish swear words “Fan” (Go ahead google it!) this multi-cultural, 
multi-talented artist is one you need to add to your musical collection.
