‘ Flawless ’
Press Kit and Song Details
Irish Singer, Musician, and Songwriter Jamie Harrison has recently been amassing an impressive online following with his recent single “Flawless”. Jamie produced the song along with Three-Time Grammy Award Winning Record Producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Sam Smith, Snow Patrol, Paolo Nutini) and Multi Platinum Award-Winning Producer Mike Cave (Lewis Capaldi, JP Cooper, James Vincent McMorrow).
The song touches on universally shared unrealistic expectations about beauty created by social media images and gently urges us not to trust those images. Spotify has placed Jamie’s songs on over ten official Spotify global playlists, as well as over 5,000 user playlists. His tracks have reached a ‘Top 50’ Spotify chart as well as picking up major traction in Sweden, Italy and the US and receiving 4 million streams.
Within only a week of it’s release, “Flawless” also received over 100,000 views on Youtube. The song’s Music Video, directed and produced by Jamie himself, is a beautifully shot narrative that deals with the unrealistic expectations that are placed on people, particularly women, in the ‘Social Media Age’ through an endearing story of a teenage girl and her online ‘idol’.
The video was shot in Galway, London and Vienna, in collaboration with Julia Knight (Beyonce, John Legend, Arctic Monkeys, Mick Jagger, Mumford & Sons, Lana Del Ray etc). Now with 1 Million views on Youtube, it has won seven awards in International Music Video and Film Festivals, including Best Music Video, Best Director and Best Actress. Most recently, it won the Award for ‘Best Social Commentary’ in the Los Angeles Music Video Awards, but it has also won Awards in cities such as London, Vienna, Munich, Prague, and others – signaling that Jamie’s music and the message of ‘Flawless’ touches all parts of the world and reminds us that hopeful inspiration and positive messages are essential in our social media filled lives.

The Flawless Artwork represents the distortion of the ‘photograph’ in today’s society. The naked female body represents the most affected group; young girls and women, and portrays that group at their most vulnerable. Heavily photoshopped, it shows a section of perfect, airbrushed skin fall into a deteriorating background, slowly being ‘chipped away’ at by the countless, fabricated portrayals of perfection we see in Today’s World.

Jamie also collaborated with Dance Music Producer Avery Berman to create an energetic, EDM/House version of ‘Flawless’. This version would be more suited to Radio stations who favor a more electronic sound, and who have a younger target Audience.
