James "Jamie" Carr began his musical journey over twenty five years ago when he was given his first acoustic guitar as a child. He began his professional career playing metal music and was signed to Leviathan Records with his band Simple Aggression while still a teenager.

After that group disbanded, he formed the power trio East Southern who released two independently financed EP's that garnered great reviews and showed the bluesy style that was becoming his signature sound.

Jamie's talent has opened the doors for him to play many shows outside his home base of Greater Cincinnati to places all over the country.

With his new releases under the Jamie Carr band moniker, he has finally embraced stepping in to the center stage as both vocalist and guitarist. His new music displays a wide range of musical influences while still embracing his love for the blues and rock guitar.
