Jamie Cullum

With a Grammy, two Golden Globe, two GQ Man of the Year, three Brit, three Sony Radio and numerous other nominations and awards under his belt, Jamie Cullum is a success story around the planet. The most successful UK jazz artist ever, having sold over 10 million albums worldwide.

On January 27, 2015, Blue Note Records will release Cullum’s seventh studio album, Interlude. The album marks a shift to straight-ahead jazz and a return to interpretation from an artist who has made a habit of bending genres, writing original material and bringing new sounds and new listeners to the music.

“To get where you want to go, sometimes you have to go back to where it all started,” explains Cullum. “Interlude is a celebration of my love of jazz that I get to revisit every week on my radio show. Through it, I have connected with some of the most talented musicians on the scene. This is a collaboration with them. Recorded in the original way – live, in one large room, straight to analogue tape, in single takes.”

The sensational musician has the ability and versatility to blur musical genres with his unique take on jazz, pop and rock and his success is truly global, taking him from Seoul to Sao Paulo, FujiRock to Glastonbury and from Hamburg to Hollywood where he achieved great acclaim collaborating with Clint Eastwood on the Golden Globe nominated score for Gran Torino. Cullum has not just written for the London West End Stage but also for BBC Television and has presented TV shows on VH-1, Sky and the BBC. He has hosted several documentaries for BBC Radio’s 4 and 2 featuring such eminent subjects as Blue Note Records, Herbie Hancock, Jimi Hendrix and Quincy Jones. He currently presents his own award winning weekly prime time show for BBC Radio 2, the highest rated station in Europe and is proud to have been the first DJ to play the new stars of jazz, Gregory Porter and Laura Mvula. Jamie’s radio show has won two New York Radio Awards and the prestigious Gold Sony Radio Award in the UK and is now licensed to stations across the dial.
