Musical Journey

In high school, Jamie joined a couple of bands during his adolescence. He enjoyed playing guitar with his fellow friends and even played a few concerts. When he was eighteen, he ventured to Europe and saw numerous musical acts. These included street performers; they gave him a passion for musicians who played multiple instruments simultaneously. Those four months of travelling to twenty-five different countries opened his eyes to some very different styles of music.

Once in Canada, Jamie devoted his off time tooling his musical craft and experimented with any musical instrument he could. He bought and played plenty of musical instruments, which included acoustic, bass, electric, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, ukelele, electronic drums, foot drums and much more. Nowadays, he strives to meld different musical tastes and instruments together into songs to create one-of-a-kind tracks and cover songs. Being a versatile one-man band is what he strives to become. 

Humble Beginnings

Jamie Geche was born in Vancouver, BC, and moved to Squamish when he was ten years old, where he lived for his adolescence. His uncle gave him his first guitar as a gift when he was thirteen. It was an Epiphone Les Paul which he still uses to this day. Ever since he picked up that guitar he loved playing it. He took lessons with his dad in the early stages of his musical journey and enjoyed it. Like most creative outlets, he picked things up quickly. Jamie truly loves music in general and believes music can get people out of the hardest emotional situations.

During high school and early adulthood, he attended numerous concerts, local punk and metal shows and any other musical events he could attend. Jamie loved to get inspired by musicians, which gave him the aspiration to get better at his craft. He attended way too many concerts to name, but they mostly had punk, rock, metal and acoustic influences.
