Rising stars head for new season at the Jam House

BIRMINGHAM's maginificent Jam House is fast becoming the new platform for up and coming musicians - hugely talented - but widely unheard of.

BIRMINGHAM's maginificent Jam House is fast becoming the new platform for up and coming musicians - hugely talented - but widely unheard of.

Since taking over as general manager six months ago, former Las Vegas singing star John Wynne has focused his attention on encouraging new acts to "bring a breath of fresh air" to the 600 capacity venue in St Paul's Square.

"I was delighted to join The Jam House as it has always been synonymous with quality live music and intimate gigs," he said.

"However, having been in the music industry myself, I am only too aware of how much undiscovered talent is out there, and I wanted to provide a platform for up and coming stars that were hugely talented but widely unheard of.

"Exciting new acts such as Tom Wardle, an amazing indie artist performing August 13, and Joanne Shaw Taylor, a phenomenal blues guitarist performing September 3rd, have really brought a breath of fresh air to The Jam House."

And this new direction has certainly proved popular as more and more people are turning up to see the intimate mid-week gigs by debuting artists.

"It was my goal to extend the diversity of music at The Jam House and to showcase some of the hidden gems of the music scene. It's been a fantastic six months and I can promise an equally exciting programme of events for the rest of the year," John added.
