Since moving to Portland, Oregon in 2002, Jamie Stillway has quietly been making her mark in the world of fingerstyle guitar. She has toured nationally and internationally, received an endorsement from Stevens Custom Guitars of Munich, and has become an in-demand instructor; teaching at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival, California Coast Music Camp, and Puget Sound Guitar Workshop. She has self-released 3 albums of original compositions, and her style of playing has brought comparisons to Leo Kottke, Django Reinhardt, Bill Frisell, Rev. Gary Davis and more. Her most recent release is a collection of solo compositions recorded live at Portland's Secret Society Studios.
“Mixing up genres without pretension, the nimble Stillway moves freely with wit and creative restlessness.” Jazz Times
