Jamie Oneal Biography
Jamie O'Neal first struck Music City gold as a sought-after
songwriter; it was only later that her own singing career blossomed.
O'Neal was born Jamie Murphy in Australia to professional musician
parents who eventually moved to Las Vegas and a casino gig via Hawaii.
Eventually, Jamie and her sister Samantha began to perform with their
parents. This led to a vagabond childhood spent traveling across
America in an RV, performing at state fairs, conventions, and as an
opening act for touring country stars. The family then moved to
Nashville, where it recorded three self-released albums. But the
divorce of O'Neal's mom and dad broke up the band, and she moved to Los
Angeles with her father.
Regular high school wasn't for her however, and soon O'Neal had dropped
out in order to try and make in Music City all on her own. She found
some work as a demo performer for a Nashville song factory but soon
left America altogether to visit her mother in Australia. There she
began performing in clubs and on street corners and landed a gig as a
backup singer for pop tart Kylie Minogue. But O'Neal was still writing
her own songs and still thought that Nashville might be her ticket. A
demo tape sent by her mother to old contacts in Nashville generated
interest, and in 1996 O'Neal was offered a songwriting contract under
producer Harold Shedd.
This exposure led to a sweeter songwriter/artist-development deal with
EMI Music. While O'Neal sang backup for established country acts like
Clay Davidson and Ronnie Milsap, her songs were covered by the likes of
LeAnn Rimes and Chely Wright. But despite this success, O'Neal still
felt stifled, as she still wasn't performing her own material.
That changed in 1998, when an audition with Mercury Nashville's Keith
Stegall led to a recording contract with the label. Her country-pop
debut, Shiver, was released in early 2000; it was nominated for three
Grammy awards. A self-titled effort followed almost immediately, and
2003 saw another LP. After taking a break to start a family, O'Neal
returned in 2005 with Brave. ~ Johnny Loftus, All Music Guide
