I’m Jamie – a musician with a passion for all things geek. I just thought I’d put a little section here so you can get to know a bit about me, what I do and why I do it!
A Little About Me
I was born in a small town to the north of London and stayed there for quite a few years, moving around to various parts of the town and a small village a little further out. We then packed up and headed up north towards Lincolnshire to a small, sleepy village not far from the coast. It was there I met many of my good friends and my love for music reared its head.
It's been the best part of 13 years since then and I've never stopped. I've played in various bands throughout the years, eventually moving back down south to my hometown a few years ago. Only recently have I begun composing soundtracks and music for games & films, but I've always had a love for orchestral music thanks to some fantastic music teachers I had in my school years. Regardless, I'm having a lot of fun and learning a lot so I hope you'll join me in this journey!
What I Do and Why I Do It
By day, I'm a mild-mannered office worker. By night, I turn into a raging geek! ... Well, maybe not raging, but you get the picture. I've had a love for all things geek for as long as I can remember and a couple of years ago, I got into a little webshow called Critical Role. It was there that I discovered D&D, which very quickly took over my entire life, as these things tend to.
I wanted to give something back to this amazing community I've discovered, so I decided to that the way I know best - through music! I noticed there are hundreds of places you can get amazing tracks for ambient music, battle themes, etc, but no one appeared to be offering anything bespoke! The idea that I could write themes tied to specific characters, places, or anything a GM or DM could ask for! I started with my own campaign, writing character themes for the players and they absolutely loved it, which naturally inspired me to take this further!
So here we are! I hope you've learnt a little about me and what it is I do here! Thanks for taking the time to read through all this!
