Jamie Cullum biography (bio):
Cullum was born at Rochford Hospital in Essex. His mother, Yvonne, is a secretary of Anglo-Burmese origin, whose family settled in Wales after Burma's independence; his father, John Cullum, worked in finance. His paternal grandfather was a British Army officer, while his paternal grandmother was a Jewish refugee from Prussia who sang in Berlin nightclubs; Cullum sees her as his "cultural icon". He was raised in Hullavington, Wiltshire but currently lives in North West London.
Cullum released his first album, Jamie Cullum TrioHeard it All Before, in 1999. A mere 500 copies were made. Original copies have sold for as much as 600 (and above) on eBay. The success of Heard It All Before resulted in Jamie being invited to appear on Geoff Gascoyne's album Songs of the Summer. After graduating from the University of Reading in 2001 (with a 1st), Cullum - who is completely self-taught, bar a few piano lessons as a youngster - released a best-selling album, Pointless Nostalgic, which stirred interest from Michael Parkinson and Melvyn Bragg. Following that, in April 2003 he signed a contract with Universal, for three albums, who beat Sony in a bidding war.
Cullum then started recording his third album, Twentysomething, in May of 2003, which was released in October 2003. It went platinum and became the #1 selling studio album by a jazz artist in the United Kingdom.
Although primarily a jazz musician, Cullum performs in a wide range of styles and is generally regarded as a "crossover" artist with his musical roots firmly based in jazz. Cullum draws his inspiration from many different musicians and listens to a very eclectic mix of music from Miles Davis to Tom Waits and many more. Cullum has been part of quite a long list of bands, ranging from banging drums in a hip hop group to playing guitar in rock bands such as Raw Sausage and The Mystery Machine, in his teenage youth.
Cullum names his brother as his biggest musical influence and claims he would not be making music if it wasn't for Ben Cullum.
Jamie Cullum is well known, not only for his abilities on the piano, but also for his unique entertainment style and charisma. One of the many things that features in Jamie's concerts is the "stompbox" (not to be confused with an effect pedal for guitars), made from a small wooden block. The stompbox is used to amplify a musician's tapping foot. Jamie found this in Australia and uses it to enhance upbeat and fast-paced songs such as Seven Nation Army originally by the White Stripes and "Gold Digger", originally by Kanye West. He is also often found using a looping machine. This plays a heavy part in Cullum's versions of Seven Nation Army and Teardrop by Massive Attack. Cullum is also often found beatboxing at nearly every gig.
Numerous reviews have cited Cullum's gigs as indescribable, but most agree it's an eclectic experience. Not only does Cullum play songs from his albums, but nearly every concert will see Cullum cover something out of the ordinary. As previously mentioned he has been known to cover White Stripes, Kanye West as well as the likes of Massive Attack, Pussycat Dolls, Gnarls Barkley, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Joy Division and many others. Jamie's show are a forever evolving experience. No two gigs are the same and some avid fans prove this point by going to multiple shows in the same week. Cullum rarely works to a set list and on average his gigs last two and a half hours. Instead of a setlist he plays what he feels like and the gigs are improvised, meaning the shows are rooted in jazz even if the music doesn't always sound like it.
Cullum has played at many large music festivals, including Glastonbury Festival 2004, Coachella 2005, 2006 South by Southwest, North Sea Jazz Festival and the 2006 Playboy Jazz Festival. On the 29th of April 2006 Cullum played his biggest ever crowd on Queensday in The Netherlands. Jamie gave a 45 minute performance for 180,000 people who crowded around the massive stage in Amsterdam, Museum Square. As a tribute to The Netherlands, Cullum wore a shirt from the Dutch Artist Anouk and orange Converse.

Awards:
The British Jazz Awards first recognised Cullum's growing success by awarding him the "Rising Star" award, at the 2003 ceremony in July. At the 2004 BRIT Awards, Cullum was nominated in the "British Breakthrough Act" category. He performed live in the ceremony at Earl's Court, a duet with Katie Melua of The Cure's "The Lovecats". In the 2005 BRIT Awards, Cullum was nominated for two awards: "Best Male Artist" and "Best Live Act". In 2005 Cullum was nominated for a prestigious Grammy award and, in the same year, went on to win yet another award at the BBC Jazz Awards, this time scooping BBC Radio 2 "Artist Of The Year", as voted for by listeners of Radio 2. In 2007 Cullum won the Ronnie Scotts Jazz Award for "Best British Male".

Catching Tales:
Cullum's third major label album, entitled Catching Tales, was released on September 26, 2005, in the United Kingdom and The Netherlands, and two weeks later in the United States, on October 11.
The American and French versions of Catching Tales do not feature Fascinating Rhythm, unlike the European version which does.
The first single to be released from the album, in the United Kingdom, was "Get Your Way", a collaboration with Dan The Automator which used a sample from the Thad Jones song 'Get Out Of My Life, Woman'. The second single released, in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, was "Mind Trick", a catchy track written by Jamie and his brother, Ben Cullum. The third single released from the album was the self-penned track "Photograph." Cullum has said it was written on New Years Day (2005) after he found a box of photographs that reminded him of how special his youth was, despite the fact it didn't seem it at the time.
A special edition version of Catching Tales is also available in Europe, featuring an exclusive 20 minute documentary, including behind the scenes footage of Jamie recording the album and on the road footage, from across Europe. It also features a 28-page booklet containing exclusive photos, Jamie rarities, extended liner notes plus a track-by-track introduction from the man himself. Catching Tales has also been released on double vinyl, as was the first single, "Get Your Way."
Catching Tales was to feature a collaboration with Pharrell Williams. Cullum and Williams recorded various songs together and it was thought that the track titled 'Wifey' would make an appearance on Catching Tales. Unfortunately, due to publishing laws, it ended up being taken off the album. Usher recorded a version of the song "Wifey", which was released on a special Japanese import of Pharrell Williams album. After much paper shuffling Jamie's vocals finally featured on Pharrell Williams's debut solo album, on a track titled "You Can Do It Too". It is such a small part that Jamie is not even credited as a 'featured' artist.
The album Catching Tales was produced by Stewart Levine, who also produced Twentysomething.
Cullum toured Catching Tales from the end of October 2005 to December 2006. Playing gigs in places such as: Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia, South America, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Spain, Portugal, as well as returning to America no less than four times in one year, to tour extensively across the USA.

Plans for 2007 and beyond:
For 2008 Cullum is taking a break from touring by writing new music, collaborating with various musicians, making a new album, as well as enjoying some well deserved time off, at home. Cullum is pursuing another musical project with his brother Ben, titled "In The Mind of Jamie Cullum", to be released on the 28th of August 2007 in the UK and possibly the rest of Europe.
On the collaboration front, in March and July 2007 Cullum played "private" unannounced gigs with brother Ben Cullum, Davide de Rose and John Hoare, at The Sun and Doves bar and gallery in Camberwell, London SE5, as part of 'Headhunters on Coldharbour Lane' an on going experimental live music project. This line-up is also appearing at Womad Charlton Park 2007, as BC & JC. The title of these Sunday night gigs references Herbie Hancock's 1973 seminal jazz-funk album of the same name. Hoare and De Rose (of Elettrorganica) front a changing line up of skilled musicians under the guise 'John's Hoares'. The unclassifiable new jazz showcase began March 2007 to promote purely spontaneous, improvised music that draws from a rich tradition of jazz but cross references with contemporary house, break beat, hip hop, rap, funk, soul, and electronica. Jamie and Ben enjoy being able to play without constraint alongside John and Dave in an intimate venue to a wholly attentive and appreciative audience.

Other Band Members:
Since 2003 Cullum has played consistently with Geoff Gascoyne, on bass, and Sebastiaan De Krom, on drums. From Autumn 2003 until Autumn 2004 the trio was joined by Ben Castle (son of Roy Castle) on saxophone, John Hoare on trumpet, Barnaby Dickinson on trombone and Malcolm Mcfarlane on guitar.
After their departure Sam Wedgwood (guitarist and trumpeter) joined Cullum, on tour, for a little over a year. At the end of 2005 Cullum was joined by Tom Richards (saxophonist, occasional guitarist and percussion). Soon after that Sam Wedgwood left, to pursue his own solo musical career. At the beginning of 2006 Rory Simmons (trumpeter and guitarist) joined the band as a replacement. Meaning the total number of band members (including Jamie himself) is five.
