The 2012 Thelonious Monk Jr. International Jazz Competition winner made his mark in jazz with his 2015 debut release JAMISON (Concord Jazz), which earned him a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. His sophomore album, ALL FOR ONE (Concord Jazz) released in January 2018 and caught the ear of many of his industry peers, including India.Arie, and continues to propel his touring with stints in the U.S. and Europe through the end of the year.

Jamison can additionally be seen on tour as part of multi-GRAMMY® winning jazz fusion band Snarky Puppy, touring in support of their latest release, Immigrance (GroundUP Music).
