5 MAY 2022 (TORONTO, ON) - Universal Music Canada (UMC), the country’s leading music company, today announces new artist signing, Jamie Fine, alongside brand new single “Confessions”. She reached platinum heights in the duo Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine, scoring a series of chart-topping songs in Canada. As another stepping stone on the journey, it paved the way for her to emerge as a solo artist in 2020 with her first single, “Sellout.” Now, she properly introduces herself on “Confessions”. Listen to the new track, here.
“I spent a year working towards exactly what I wanted to do,” she explains. “I’m more resilient, and the music is truly authentic. It’s the most euphoric thing ever.”
Jamie launches this chapter with the emotionally charged single “Confessions.” Produced by longtime collaborator Bynon, soft piano and elegant strings back a showstopping vocal performance. Cruising by her old house, she wonders if, “The people that live there now are happier than we were somehow?”
“I was listening to a podcast with Jeff Ross, and he said humans are meant to mourn and move on,” she says. “It’s one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned. We may be meant to move on, but people hold on to things. Mourning becomes a sense of comfort. We don’t know who we are without it. ‘Confessions’ is me moving on to a bigger and better chapter—or even book.”
Jamie’s music might be the only thing that’s as lively as her personality. A proud open book, the Ottawa-born singer, songwriter, and artist is smart, talented, hilarious, and most of all honest. She’s the kind of dynamic presence who inspires the rest of us to be a little bit louder, a tad more fearless, and just better all around.
“My music isn't linear because I’m not linear,” she says. “I am extremely happy at times, and very sad at others. I feel the most in the extremes and I can be very unsatisfied and uninspired in the middle. I go through phases of wanting to stay at home with my dog and my girlfriend and other phases of wanting to go out every night. My music is a direct extension of all of that. It’s sometimes happy and sometimes sad - sometimes fun and light and sometimes darker and more complex. But one thing that all of it is consistently, is unfiltered and transparent.”
Stay tuned for much more to come from Jamie Fine in 2022.

About Jamie Fine
Jamie Fine’s music might be the only thing that’s as lively as her personality. A proud open book, the Ottawa-born singer, songwriter, and artist is smart, talented, hilarious, and most of all honest. She’s the kind of dynamic presence who inspires the rest of us to be a little bit louder, a tad more fearless, and just better all around. As a kid, Jamie gravitated towards music. It provided solace from bullying and moments when her family just didn’t understand. In addition to listening to Black Eyed Peas, and Nickelback, she loved hip-hop, spinning old school J. Cole on repeat in between performing at multicultural shows in high school. She opted to attend culinary school instead of university and launched her own catering business upon graduating. Following a creative awakening, she chose to quit the business and pursue music full-time in 2017. She reached platinum heights in the duo Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine, scoring a series of smashes in Canada. 2020 saw her step out solo and craft a signature style of her own. Now, she properly introduces herself on a series of singles and her forthcoming debut EP for Universal Music Canada, beginning with “Confessions.”
