Jamie Stever is a native of Prince Edward County, Ont. At the age of 14, Stever got his hands on a guitar and discovered that making music was what he wanted to do in life. Stever has studied classical and Spanish-style guitar. His first two albums, Spanish Solstice and Destinations, featured his guitar playing.
Stever then set his sights on learning the craft of songwriting for country music. On his upcoming album Genuine, Stever worked with co-writers Brian White and Bruce Wallace. The album will be released this summer and the latest single, “Sweet Sweet Summertime,” is out now. Stever took time out of his promotional tour to answer our Meet Q&A.
