Star session guitarist brings deep fusion grooves with his A-list line-up
Jamie Leeming’s curiosity has always been a key part of his ever-evolving relationship with music. Whether that be as a teenager and being captivated by the cover of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew in a local HMV, or his fascination with how we experience memories, the latter of which plays a central role in his debut solo album, Resynthesis. His curiosity for music compelled him to play and eventually led to Leeming becoming one of the most sought after young jazz guitarists in London, with a unique style that finds him regularly amongst the likes of Alfa Mist, Tom Misch and Jas Kayser, the latter of whom appears on drums across much of Resynthesis.

He’s played with Stormzy, Wizkid, Bob Geldoff, Jordan Rakei, Daymé Arocena, Imelda May, Kamaal Williams, Mostack, Tiana Major9, Stefflon Don, and General Levy among many others but his own sound reflects his love of jazz and commitment to groove and free expression.
