About Jamie Green
Jamie Green's first love was always music, but like many she opted for the "safe" academic route first, getting a B.A. in American Studies at Stanford. Upon graduation, Green moved back to her native Los Angeles, took up music and dabbled in a few different bands before finding the courage to strike out on her own. In 2000, Jamie released her debut, My Crime, which managed to scoop the L.A. Music Awards' top honor for Outstanding Independent Pop Album that year. Three years later, Green followed with Truce, which netted the L.A. Music Awards' Adult Alternative Album of the Year. Her confessional style of songwriting also struck a chord with the John Lennon Songwriting Contest panel of music professionals, who gave two of Green's songs, "Don't Even" and "Mantra" (both from Truce), awards for songwriting excellence.
