"Michael Jamsmith has a unique clarity and soul within his performance."
-Sammy Blue
"Every once in a while Michael Jamsmith will impress me again, and last night he did a couple of times, particularly the last song he played. He was on absolute fire. I do believe he had some Barry Richman chops woven in there a couple of times."
-Giuseppe Colato, Dirty South TV.
"Jamsmith is a smokin' hot player ... lots of passion and fire in his music"
-Barry Richman

Michael Jamsmith

Michael Jamsmith came to the blues the same way many a young man did in the 60s and 70s: from the British Blues explosion epitomized by Led Zeppelin, Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. While his peers were more drawn to heavy metal elements of those bands, Jamsmith was drawn to the distinctive influence the Electric Blues, eventually discovering BB and Albert King. However, it was the stylings of Jimi Hendrix that became his heart and soul.

Jamsmith moved to central Florida in 1981. During the 80s, he channeled that blues rock sound into something completely different with funk-rock recording artists Electric Flame. By the early 90s, Jamsmith had established The Electric Flame, an award winning power trio that opened for groups like Marshal Tucker Band, The Outlaws, Leon Russell, Pat Travers, Foghat, Starship, Flock of Seaguls, and others.

In 1999, Jamsmith relocated to Atlanta, GA. Being Atlanta, he naturally gravitated to the funk rock scene and played with the punk-funk outfit Psycho-Pimps. He later played ATL Nutbush and the southern rock quintet Big Pappy Hinds Band in regular rotation at Good Ol' Days. Additionally, since 2007, he held down the lead guitar chores in Atlanta's Axis Experience tribute to Jimi Hendrix. They have peformed at the Center Stage, Tampa Expo Center, Nashville's Marathon Music Works, Blind Willies, The High Theatre and most recently played at the Mableton Amphitheatre along with Virgin Record recording artists Saving Abel and Atlanta's own Lefty Williams.

A few years back, after decades as a sideman known for "face-melting" leads, Jamsmith wanted to step up to the microphone. He began attending the open mics where honed his vocals for the blues, most notably his interpretations of B.B. King's vocal style. It was the warmth and appreciation he found from the hard core Blues patrons at Darwin's in Marietta that gave him the encouragement to strike out on his.

Jamsmith plays his Stratocasters through a variety of tube amplifiers and Marshall cabinets.
