Jamie Cullum (born 20 August 1979) is an English pop music and jazz singer-songwriter, pianist, guitarist, and drummer.
English jazz-pop, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jamie Cullum is renowned for his eclectic live shows where he performs not only his own hits ("Everlasting Love", "These Are the Days") but also covers from a heterogeneous list of artists; most notably White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" and Massive Attack's "Teardrop". He has also covered artists like Joy Division, Pussycat Dolls and Justin Timberlake as well as beatboxing at most of his live gigs.
During 2010 - Jamie Cullum hosted a Tuesday evening jazz show on BBC 2, as part of changes to the station's evening schedule.
Jamie Cullum mixes jazz with melodic pop and rock into a crossover style that calls to mind such artists as Harry Connick, Jr., and Norah Jones. In that vein, Jamie Cullum will just as often cover a swinging jazz standard as a modern rock song, and his original compositions deftly move from earnest ballads to songs of sardonic wit.
Having played guitar and piano since age eight, Jamie Cullum developed an avid interest in jazz passed down from his older brother Ben. Inspired by such piano icons as Oscar Peterson and Dave Brubeck, Jamie Cullum spent some of his formative years living in Paris, where he honed his abilities performing in jazz clubs.
Jamie Cullum eventually earned a degree from Reading University, during which time he recorded his first album, Heard It All Before, at age 19. The surprise success of that album eventually put him in contact with jazz bassist Geoff Gascoyne, who offered Jamie Cullum the opportunity to play on his album Songs of the Summer. With Gascoyne's encouragement, Jamie Cullum eventually recorded his second album, Pointless Nostalgic, released in 2002.
The album benefited from a boost of publicity as it received heavy airplay on TV and radio personality Michael Parkinson's BBC 2 radio show. Jamie Cullum eventually signed with Universal Records and released his third album, Twentysomething, in 2003. Catching Tales and the compilation/mixtape album In the Mind of Jamie Cullum followed in 2005 and 2007, respectively.
In 2009, Cullum was nominated along with Clint Eastwood for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for their composition “Gran Torino.” A year later, he released the album The Pursuit. In 2013, Cullum returned with his sixth studio album, Momentum.
Cullum has played at many large music festivals, including Glastonbury Festival (in 2004 & 2009), Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2005, 2006 South by Southwest, North Sea Jazz Festival, the Hollywood Bowl (performing with the Count Basie Orchestra) and the 2006 Playboy Jazz Festival.
Cullum rarely works to a set list and on average his theatre gigs last just over two hours. The gigs are largely improvised, rooted in jazz but not solely consisting of jazz music.
Jamie married model Sophie Dahl in January 2010.
