Writing has begun for recording in Ireland this May 2018.

We will be going on a creative tourcation to write and record with Kieran Kennedy (Maria Doyle Kennedy, John Prine, Damien Rice) at his studio on the shores near Cork. While overseas we will collect photos and videos to help promote the record and can't wait to share it all with you. Have any gig ideas while we are overseas? Please do drop us a line....

The Vinyl Cafe: The Unreleased Stories


The cover artwork is from longtime friend and regular Vinyl Cafe guest Reid Jamieson. (Bet ya didn't even know Reido was a visual artist!) Can't tell you how much it means to us to have Reid's 'Radio Canada' image used on the cover of this collection. Reid initially drew this image as a framed gift for Stuart years ago, so when Jess asked we were beyond honoured. Dang we miss that guy)

Two stories included in the set come from Stuart's final Vinyl Cafe performance, which was recorded in Thunder Bay on November 22, 2015. As producer Jess Milton recalled in a press release, it was something of a fluke that "Dave and the Vacuum" and "The Christmas Card" were even recorded:

"I had my computer with me, and I pressed record at the last minute…as an archive. It was supposed to be a 'reference track.' I only recorded it so that Stuart and I could listen to those stories before the next tour. Of course, that tour — 'the next tour' — never happened.​"


The Vinyl Cafe: The Unreleased Stories 
is available for pre-order here.

WATCH: Reid Jamieson Band

Live in Mill Valley, CA









Starting September 1st, 2017 we took an indefinite break from all social media.

Why? We have 2 big records we really need/want to make in the next couple of years and focus has become increasingly difficult. And so #TheBigQuit. Career/social self-destruction? Maybe. Tho maybe it's time for this. Maybe when the next record is ready we will hire someone to do it for us. Maybe it doesn't really matter what we do. We will just have to trust that Fans will find a way to connect.  
As all social media accounts will be left dormant, our mailing list will be the ONLY way to find out the latest in tunes and dates. Hoping that our focusing on the 20% quality fans remaining will result in 80% more quality music and life. Wouldn't that be swell? And hey, maybe you guys will chip in and do some sharing on our behalf. That would mean the world to us.

We are starting a juicy blog to share what we do in a monthly fashion. We eagerly accept and relish direct communication from friends, family and fans. This quitting of all social media will be scary, and indefinite. And an experiment we really need to try. Wish us luck. Your support means everything to us.







The son is shining and we will be hitting some stages in our best florals while the weather is with us. Gonna bring Canada Day to Bellingham on July 1st with a backyard house concert bash. And then it’s off to Ontario with a special show on JUNIPER ISLAND (of you can stand it) on Stoney Lake, and then we return to the grand dame of folk festivals here in Canada Mariposa! Super stoked to share the stage with some incredible performers, you simply must join us.


After that it's a wee tiny trip to California’s Bay Area in late July for a private concert, and then we hit the stage for the inaugural Olalla Americana Fest in Washington August 19. Oh! and In August we return to Harmony Arts in West Van too. Incredible stage by the sea they have there.


Late October/November we plan to take a trip down the west coast WA/OR/CA to focus on songwriting for recording in Ireland next spring. Focusfocusfocus is what we need. Such inspiring landscape and a few treasured nests to hide ourselves away in. From Washington all the way down to San Fransisco. Might play a few gigs too, so if you have a any suggestions for us, please do let us knowMore where that came from - and yer all coming right? Hope so. DATES

Farewell Stuart McLean


April 19, 1948 - February 15, 2017


It’s been a heck of a week, and Reid and I have spent the last few days marvelling at how big of an impact Stuart has had on our lives, especially musically. We have lost a Canadian legend, and a dear friend. Stuart will be missed by all that were touched by his kindness, charisma and curiosity. We made this tribute to Canada’s favourite story teller back in 2013 when he was full of joy and life, exploring the world as “Cottage Man”. This is not a eulogy, it’s a celebration. We hope you enjoy.

AuntLeahsFIND YOUR HEART A HOME on Vinyl Cafe


Vinyl Cafe Stories July 2015

Find Your Heart a Home was featured alongside a great Vinyl Cafe story about Sam's first job. When we got the call from Jess asking to use this ancient demo we were surprised. Written about Reid's big move west exactly 10 years previoud made for some pretty great timing. And so we rerecorded it and sent it out into the world, with the realization that our journey was not an uncommon one, and maybe worth sharing. #truestory







Our afternoon Valentine's benefit show went so well we decided to try the matinee time slot again for Mother's Day! Sunday May 10th at Cottage Bistro we will raise funds for a charity close to our hearts Aunt Leah's. Aunt Leah’s Place helps prevent children in foster care from becoming homeless and mothers in need from losing custody of their children. To support them on their journey to self-sufficiency, they provide supported housing, job training, and coaching on essential life skills. Buy tix here. This will also be a single release party for a new song we are working on called...wait for it... MAMA'S DAY!






Something we can't help but notice as time goes by is how few photos we have of our mothers. They always seem to be taking the pictures, or running around looking after everyone else...and that no way to celebrate a lady. So, Reid is looking for photos of the moms in your life so that we can create a video for the new single MAMA'S DAY. It's time we put mom in the picture! Send us a photo of your mom (preferably high rez but don't worry about it) and we will gussy it up and include it in the new video as a tribute to moms everywhere. :


TAKE ON ME (A-ha cover)



A special day around our house (13th anniversary of our first kiss!) and to celebrate here is Reid's 80s Valentine to all of you:

Reid & The Missus Make a record






The record is done and we couldn't be more proud of our new baby! Junipers Kitchen is very special to us, and 12 years in the making. The first with the missus (Carolyn Victoria Mill). We wrote and sang every song together - it's a little Johnny & June meets Fleetwood Mac - and all about the songs. To celebrate we took the record on a 2 month, 3 country tourcation with stops in Washington, California, Ontario and the UK! Have a listen here:

Recording Begins!

The new record has begun, and boy are we excited! Tentatively titled Juniper's Kitchen, this will very much be a couple's album, with lots of duets. Anyone who has seen a live show in the last year or so will be happy to hear that 'the missus' Carolyn Mill, will finally make a record with Reido. This will very much represent their live set. You can file under 'Country Soul' and expect a fall release with dates in Toronto, Vancouver, Regina, California and Washington - UK too! Jon Arason on drums, Keith Rose on bass, Anne Lindsay on violin, Paul Rigby on pedal steel, and produced and recorded at Wiggly Toes studio in West Vancouver with Michael Holland. Watch a couple videos to wet yer whistle in the meantime. Shot live while on vacation, in a single take on Mt. Tam in Mill Valley CA.

HEY BIG KID (The Ballad of Stuart & Reido)


An ode to Canada's favourite storyteller - Stuart Mclean. Written with affection by his pal Reid Jamieson, a regular musical guest and official member of the Vinyl Cafe orchestra, it tells the tale of sharing the road and music, laughter and lasting friendship. From their first show together in Port Hope Ontario back in January 2005 all the way until Christmas 2012 in Seattle Washington, Reid has spent enough time with this 'big kid' to hope this particular story never ends. Available on iTunes. more here

Sentimental Song was recently chosen as a finalist in the Great American Songwriting Contest (Xmas/Novelty category) and the UK Songwriting Contest, plus as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Contest. Not a winner yet - but beats a sharp stick in the eye!



Written by Reid and his Mrs., this swinging single sums up what remains a rather complicated time of year for them both. While single-parent poverty left its coal-black mark on CVM’s childhood, Reid’s mother’s death on December 22nd meant that, for one teenage boy, the season would never be quite the same. And yet, each year when lights begin to twinkle, and the melodies of Christmas past make their home in our hearts once again, the magic of holiday music can somehow make even the scrooge in us want to sing along. more

Rail wins Grand Prize for Folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest! Written by Reid (with his wife Carolyn Victoria Mill) a wee while back, Rail was penned especially for a train trip reid took with Stuart Mclean and the CBC's Vinyl Cafe on VIA Rail's 'The Canadian'.


This tune has worked pretty hard since that trip on the Canadian, but winning this award is something we never expected - and wow there are prizes! lots of them! Really glad we entered that one. This little song that could is all about not giving up on yourself...and so we won't. Please do share the music and the good news. Choo choo!









Reid wins 1st prize in Pickin A Folk Star
at Vancouver Folk Fest 2012


Rain or Shine was written by Reid Jamieson & Carolyn Victoria Mill especially for the Vancouver Folk Music Festival ~ Pickin' a Folk Star contest. The duo had to write a song on ukulele about the fest specifically (they took 3rd place last year with their song Volunteers). This happy little ditty about not letting the weather get you down won them 1st prize this year. The prize - the opportunity to perform 4 songs on the mainstage, along with a Tom Lee Music gift certificate, and free weekend passes. You can watch the winning entry below.





American Invasion
~ One House Concert at a time


Reid just returned from his first ever live performance in the US. An amazing time was had at the Triple Door in Seattle, made lots of new friends and began what will hopefully become a regular happening. Reid also performed at a house concert in Olalla WA that went extremely well - what a swell place and super kind audience! If you haven't attended a house concert yet, you really should check out this growing trend in intimate entertainment.


"I was expecting a good concert, I didn't expect to fall in love. Reid may have the best voice of any of our performers. He and his wife Carolyn however have an interaction that can only be experienced at a house concert. I loved them, the audience loved them." - Nolan Pepperdine, Olalla House Concerts WA.


Maybe you want to take Reido home some time? more info here:

Reid saves Theme from Titanic




‘My Heart Will Go On’ (theme from Titanic) available on iTunes

Sure it’s easy enough to make fun of this monster-hit, but in truth it’s a rather well written ballad sung by an incredible vocalist – nobody rocks a key change like Celine. Much like his influences (Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, and Harry Nilsson), Reid truly loves taking on a vocal challenge. In attempting to interpret Celine Dion’s epic vocals Reid learned a great deal about his own abilities and even found a couple of tricks to bring into the studio when working on his original compositions. We do hope you enjoy Reido’s rootsy take on this Titanic love song.

(credits: Music by James Horner, lyrics by Will Jennings. Recorded at home, Reid on all instruments and vocals, produced by CVM)

wanna support reid? and canadian music in general? please take a moment to request that your local record store, radio station, tv show, magazine or newspaper profile reid's music in some way. it only takes a moment but it really, really helps. thanks, eh?
