"Twenty Million Bulldog Ants" - WINNER Comedy Section Bungendore Awards 2006
ALISHA 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 Awards.
Recording Artist
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.
Future Plans
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.
