Singer/Songwriters Jaime Wyatt and Ted Wulfers Play Morso
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 16, 2011- Jaime Wyatt and Chicago-born rocker Ted Wulfers are playing on Friday December 9, 2011 at 8 pm at Morso in Gig Harbor. Jaime Wyatt will be making her Gig Harbor homecoming appearance at Morso this time out. Both Jaime and Ted are performing as part of the Americana Music Series produced by Michael ONeill and Morso. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at Morso or by calling Morso at 530-3463.
“Last January the Americana Music Series brought us all Vicci Martinez just when she was hitting both national and the international stage. Here is another artist we want you to catch before they hit their stride” said Michael ONeill. Song-writer producer Pete Droge said of the first time he heard Jaime Wyatt, “What struck me most was the magnetism of her voice. It was so appealing. You hear it and you want to get closer to it. You can tell if somebody has that natural presence.”
Jaime is a local girl, graduating from Gig Harbor High School in 2004. At 14, she was avidly writing lyrics in notebooks and working out chord progressions on guitar. “I’ve always written songs and come up with verses and lyrics,” Wyatt notes, “But I never wanted to sing in front of people until I picked up a guitar.” She started performing at Tacoma’s Antique Sandwich Club and signed with Lakeshore records at age 17 before graduating from high school.
Since moving to LA, Jaime has been writing and touring from her home. Between her own studio recording and tours, she has shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, John Fogerty, John Mellencamp and even landed on the set of Desperate Housewives. Writing and recording for nearly a decade, Jaime has thrived in working songs into the movies. Wyatt describes her material as roots rock with a pop sensibility. The roots part incorporates some blues and country influences and there’s a little R&B groove sometimes, too.
Jaime also plays with Jane and Jonathan Sheldon in the American Bloomers. Their voices blend seamlessly over jangling acoustic guitars and electric riffs. They just released their new Part One - EP Novemebr 15, 2011.
Opening the evening is Ted Wulfers. Ted’s from Chicago and brings that mid-west party rock to the table. He is a rootsy rocker and his combination of heartland rock, stadium pop, stonesy swagger, California cool and Texas twang has earned him comparisons to Tom Petty, Wilco, The Foo Fighters, Chris Isaak, Dierks Bentley, Kid Rock, Kings of Leon, Lyle Lovett and The Wallflowers. His ability as a performer to connect with listeners keeps him busy for 50-200 shows a year.
Ted has released 4 CDs and is working on his next one having released the single Here We Go in March 2011. All of Ted’s music has received significant radio and TV airtime. He has also been featured on CNN, CNN Europe and ABC World News as well as in ESPN The Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, and the NY Times.
