Million Bulldog Ants" - WINNER Comedy Section Bungendore Awards 2006
SMITH - Finalist - Golden Guitar Awards 2008!
Born in Goondiwindi, Keith Jamieson has spent most of his life in
the bush, which is where he gets most of his inspiration for songwriting.
Keith leans towards the bush ballad style of writing and recording,
following in the footsteps of our pioneers such as Stan Coster, Slim
Dusty, Tony Brooks, Tom Oliver and Joe Daly.
Keith has written some classic songs over the years, some of which
have been recorded by Slim Dusty, Jeff Brown, Sharon Heaslip, Nathan
Charlton, Charmaine Pout, Dave Reynolds, Noel Smith and Bev Branson.
One of his most successful songwriting efforts being The Ghost of
Three Rivers, which was a huge hit for Jeff Brown and has won awards
such as TSA Bush Ballad of the Year 2003 and the Tasmania and New
Zealand Songwriting Award Recorded Section 2002. It also made the
finals of Mildura 2002, Bungendore 2003 and the 2003 Golden Guitar
Keith's album Troy's Memory, was produced by Lindsay Butler at LBS
Studios and has received widespread airplay. The first single One
Tree Plain, which was written by Tony McKenna raced up the Australian
Country Charts to number six and earned him a finalist spot in the
2003 TIARA Awards. The latest recording by Keith is a tribute to Barry
Thornton and his sidekick Mulga Dan, which he wrote before Bazza passed
away and had intended to record with Barry but sadly that wasn't to
be. "The Ballad of Mulga Dan" has recently won the Open
Section of the Tasmania & New Zealand Songwriting Awards 2003
and is receiving a lot of airplay right around Australia. Keith also
came third in the Recorded section of these awards with "Tex,
Buddy & Slim".
Keith has three albums available: The Year 2000 Australian Bushman,
Troy's Memory, Bush Ballads Forever also the EP The Ballad
Of Mulga Dan. He also has a single available called The Roma
Oil Rig Man.
Keith hopes to continue writing and recording bush ballads
for many years to come and also encourages people young or old to
carry on the bush ballad tradition.
