Jamie Symons is a professionally accomplished harmonica player with over two decades of experience. He has played on TV commercials, studio and live performance sessions and has been a main fixture in the Australian Blues scene playing in numerous bands he has lead.
Jamie is also the front man for Devil’s Kiosk whose sound derives from elements of the earthy sounds of the ʻ40ʼs and ʻ50ʼs blues masters, the soulful feel of ʻ60ʼs and ʻ70ʼs British blues as well as the virtuosic magic of more contemporary blues artists. Devils Kiosk have taken it a step up and to the left having wowed fans in recent years at music festivals across Australia including the Woodford Folk Fest, the Byron Bay Blues Festival and the Gympie Muster. In May 2012 they unveiled their new name and direction at Blues on Broadbeach (an event at which they have appeared since its inception in 2002) adding many faces to their growing following.
Growing up in Canberra and then Brisbane, music has been part of Jamie’s life ever since he could remember. His grandfather played guitar and harmonica, his grandmother the mandolin and his father played drums. Around the age of 16, Jamie began playing harmonica. His natural flair, ability and love for the instrument kept him practicing & listening to the greats.
Jamie took out 2013, 2014 and 2015 Hohner golden harmonica championships held at Tamworth country music festival adding to a number awards over the past decade, and secured an endorsement deal through Mando harps Australia and Seydel Harmonicas.
