A venue operator in California refers to Jaime Michaels as a “songwriters’ songwriter.” He came late to the craft, having enjoyed a long career as a covers artist both as a soloist and, for a while, full tilt rock and roll band lead singer with The Truly Dangerous Swamp Band.

Something happened a few years back when he moved west, far from his east coast roots, to a new home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Maybe it was just the change of scenery, something in the big western night sky . . . but the songs started coming. Finely crafted. Tuneful. Both spirited and spiritual . . . songs of kindness and true emotion. Eleven albums, so far, with Jono Manson in the producer’s chair for the past nine. Their 2013 effort, unknown blessings, is a fund raiser with 100% of the sales going to the Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation’s teen music camp. That album, along with 2011’s the man with the time machine, and most recently, 2016’s once upon a different time, have all won the New Mexico Music Awards Album of the Year Award.

Jaime continues touring both in the U.S. and in Italy, where once upon a different time was released on Appaloosa records in 2016. He toured in Italy in 2017 with keyboardist Radoslav Lorcović. 2018 dates included a mainstage set at the 2018 Kerrville Folk Festival, a summer tour in California and a tour in Texas in the fall with fellow singer-songwriter RJ Cowdery.” He appeared next on Appaloosa Records’ tribute album to Townes Van Zandt, The Wind Blows, on the first track, a stellar cover of Snowing On Raton.

In 2019, a new album, if you fall, was released on Appaloosa Records, a collaboration between Jono, Jaime and a new recording band consisting of Austinites Paul Pearcy on drums and Ronnie Johnson on bass, NYC/Nashville veteran pedal steel, mandolin, guitar wiz Jon Graboff and on keyboards and accordions, Radoslav Loković. As always, there are some stellar originals (if you fall, red buddha laughs, so it goes & carnival town among them). Also a couple of moving covers, Greg Trooper’s they call me Hank and an English translation of legendary Italian singer songwriter Francesco de Gregori’s most famous song, Rimmel, which has already been featured on RAI, Italian state television.

In 2020, the global pandemic struck just as Jaime was heading to Italy for a tour. The virus curtailed Jaime’s touring for the past year. In the meantime he has been performing online and has just released a single, co-written with Austin songwriter Jeff Talmadge, called “in My Home” about the strange times we find ourselves in.
