Stage performer Jamie McRoberts releases first single off forthcoming album
Oakville, ON-based pop singer Jamie McRoberts describes “Having One Of Those Days” as a tune that offers a glimpse into the world of the anxiety she struggled with for most of her adult life.
This is the third song released from her debut album, Bring Me Your ‘A’ Game, under the COA Productions banner. Jamie crafted this single in partnership with songwriter, producer, and music executive Ross Vannelli to offer a very contemporary take on love.
She wasn’t ever interested in writing love songs, she said. After initial discussions with Ross, she decided on creating music that speaks to those dealing with anxiety in relationships, believing that this tune is as close as they could get to a love song.
“It’s the promise to a partner who is watching someone they love struggle, that it’s possible to put all of this stress behind them if they just hold on,” she added.
The tune has all the classic country and pop appeal you could want for a message about anxiety and patience.
Growing up as a classically trained pianist, Jamie used to often associate the instrument with perfection, stress, and exhaustion. And the singer typically used it to play other people’s songs and stories. But when watching the video playback for “Having One Of Those Days,” for the first time, she felt a surge of emotion, she said.
“Now my instrument plays a big part in the telling of my own personal stories. My piano and I have come full circle, and there is something so wonderfully freeing about using it as part of telling my truths,” she said.
The tastefully directed and shot music video features Jamie belting out powerful tunes on an elegant grand piano.
Since the age of 5, she has been training as an actor/performer and has not only performed Canada-wide but also performed Internationally.
She has been featured in Rock of Ages at Stage West Calgary and All Shook Up at Stage West Mississauga. Currently, she is in Maggie, a new Canadian Musical created and co-written by Johnny Reid and Matt Murray.
“Just Like I Remember” is the first single off of Jamie McRoberts’ album, Bring Me Your ‘A’ Game.
