Although this website covers Australian country music, there is a bit of licence taken to sometimes include artists from New Zealand – our countries have a long history of cooperation, and they’re geographically so near, that it just makes sense. Especially when it gives me the opportunity to talk to Jamie McDell about her new self-titled album. McDell’s last album was Extraordinary Girl in 2018; it was her first in the country genre, as she’d released two pop albums before that. Jamie McDell is a work of art – beautifully made, poignantly delivered. It was wonderful to have the chance to find out more about it from its creator.
