The Jamie Freeman Agreement are “the UK’s very own Americana virtuosos” (Spiral Earth) – and what’s more, this wonderfully talented 5 piece will be bringing their own unique take on the Americana genre to the Tower for us, on the back of universal praise for their new album, from all quarters.
With their latest release ‘100 Miles From Town’, they “set about defining English Americana” (FATEA) with a mix of styles embracing folk, country and echoes of the 60’s.
Delivering a “robust and thoroughly competent collection of roots-rock anthems” (Americana UK) they are “a prime example of how we can compete over here with the best over there” (Three Chords & The Truth).
Testament to the quality of Jamie’s songwriting is the roster of names happy to lend themselves to the latest album; Mark Chadwick (The Levellers)(executive producer), Larkin Poe, Brandy Zdan (Twilight Hotel), Good Lovelies, BJ Cole and Richard Smith all feature.
Check out the videos below and see what all the fuss is about!
He has been a musician and songwriter all his life. He is the brother of acting sensation Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock) and spent time playing with late 80’s synth-popsters Frazier Chorus, led by another talented brother, Tim.
Jamie produced the critically-acclaimed ‘Not Waving But Drowning’ by The Self Help Group.

“…a band focused album that underlines Freeman’s undoubted songwriting talents and great ear for a tune…a veritable sack full of glorious melodies, hooks and instantly adorable choruses.” (Resident Records)
“…it’s high quality, beautifully written, arranged, sung, played and produced music that keeps the listener in thrall for the entire twelve songs of this album.” (American Roots UK)
“…an album full to the brim with potential radio ‘hits’, expect to hear a lot from this record over the coming months.” (ARK PR)
