Jamie Cullum, (brought into the world August 20, 1979, Rochford, Essex, England), British performer who was known for jazz sytheses that were vigorously affected by contemporary mainstream music.
Cullum experienced childhood in Hullavington and—for the most part self-educated—started playing in a musical gang at age 15. He before long progressed toward becoming pulled in to jazz and started playing and singing it in bars and on voyage ships. He went through a year in Paris and afterward went to the University of Reading, England, where he examined film and English, created music, and acted. In 1999 he fronted his own cash to record his first collection, Heard It All Before, which he squeezed in little amounts and sold from the bandstand. His subsequent collection, Pointless Nostalgic, was recorded two years after the fact by a jazz mark, and it turned out to be such a most loved on British radio that the real names Sony and Universal battled an offering war to sign him.
Cullum marked with Universal and recorded Twentysomething in 2003, which was trailed by long stretches of occupied global visiting. His singing and playing, which evoked swing and ditty dispositions instead of shake, were an irregularity in the popular music of the day, however the CD sold 2,000,000 units, 400,000 of them in the United States. His collection was an eccentric blend of models, firsts, and adjustments of tunes by Jimi Hendrix and Radiohead. In 2005 Cullum discharged Catching Tales. After three years he cowrote and performed on the tune “Gran Torino” for the Clint Eastwood film of a similar name. Consequent collections incorporated The Pursuit (2009), Momentum (2013), and Interlude (2014).
