“Skillfully executed, folk-derived songwriting” ~ Clash Magazine
30.11.18 at 7pm: Candelit Vigil at The Brink (remembrance evening for those who have lost loved ones to addiction)
I am currently developing my debut single and album which blends folk-punk sounds, biting lyrics and harmonies.
I am a self-taught singer-songwriter who plays gigs in and around Liverpool and has performed in Manchester, Cardiff, London, as well as internationally, in Italy and the United States.
In 2015 my song was selected for Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent Competition’s Longlist; where 120 acts were chosen from 1000’s who entered. Clash Magazine selected my song Ten Years for its: “skillfully executed, folk-derived songwriting”.

LIVE MUSIC REVIEW:
An act who ”stood out” at ‘Across the Threshold’
“I was already aware that Jazamin is a multi-talented artist, and have met her at the photo pit a couple of times, but I’d never heard her music before. Tonight she performed as a 3 piece with the wonderful Luke Moore on Cello … and also Dawn on harmonies and Glockenspiel. A real treat!”
John King ~ Live Music Reviews
“One thing Threshold always nails is the Saturday afternoon … A double header of NaMo and Jazamin Sinclair really epitomised that feeling. Jazamin, who brought along Dawn from Dawn and the Embers, and were more folky than the soulful NaMo, but it was another perfect Saturday afternoon at Threshold.”
Shaun Ponsonby ~ Planet Slop
One of “ten best acts of the weekend” at ‘Across the Threshold’
“Bridging the genre gap, Jazamin Sinclair merges singer songwriter sensibilities with balladic soul.”
“A sunny folk-punk blended set in Unit 51 seemed a perfect soundtrack to the weather on Saturday. Her acoustic guitar playing was powerful and urgent, offset beautifully by her accompanists on cello and xylophone. There were country twangs of Lindi Ortega at times. A cracking little gem in a crowded line up. There’s an EP out soon and we’re keen to get our hands on it.”
