JAMIE KENT ALL AMERICAN MUTT

Jamie Kent closed out 2016 with his single ‘All American Mutt’ one of the 25 Best Country Songs of 2016 according to Rolling Stone.

Marissa Moss wrote, “Packed with a funky vamp, splashes of fast-picking twang and a pop sensibility that Jason Mraz would admire, Kent focuses on the differences that describe but don’t define us. And who else can mention Buddhists in a country song?”

Kent debuted on the Billboard Country Albums chart at No. 16 with All American Mutt – the only independent. He also received the prestigious DISCovery Award from MusicRow’s Robert K. Oermann, who described the single as “a rootsy, rollicking, harmonica-punctuated track with a very cool lyric about tolerance and diversity.” A Massachusetts native Kent has approached his music career with a different spin, opting to form a grassroots group of fans called The Collective in lieu of a label deal, and shunned iTunes and Spotify. Produced by Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark), All American Mutt is only available on www.jamiekent.com.
