Jamie Ousley

JAMIE OUSLEY has been one of the most in-demand bassists in south Florida since he moved to Miami in the fall of 1998 to attend graduate school in the prestigious Jazz program of the University of Miami. He has since completed his Doctorate of Musical Arts degree in Jazz Bass Performance and continues to perform and teach both locally and internationally.

Being the child of musical parents, Jamie began music at an early age. After learning to play the melody to “Star Wars” on the piano, his parents recognized a talent and enrolled him in Suzuki violin lessons at the age of 5. He continued with violin in the public school orchestra program in Johnson City, Tennessee, and eventually switched to double bass at the age of 12.

Jamie has performed with many artists including: Ira Sullivan, Eddie Higgins, Arturo Sandoval, Benny Golson, George Sheering, James Moody, Dave Liebman, John Fedchock, Maria Schneider, Vince Mendoza, Jim McNeeley, Nestor Torres, Bucky and John Pizzarelli, Carmen Lundy, Harry Allen, Chip McNeill, Bob Berg, Greg Abate, Royce Campbell, Duffy Jackson, Steve Davis, Adam Nussbaum, Vic Damone, Nicole Henry, Wendy Pedersen, Lisanne Lyons, Elin, Annie Sellick, Suzanne Somers, Stephanie Nakasian, Hod O’Brien, and Les DeMerle.

Jamie has had the pleasure of performing for many celebrities, dignitaries, and heads of state including: President Bill Clinton, Governor Jeb Bush, Prince Albert of Monaco, King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain, King Kigeli V of Rwanda, Prince Ermias Sahle Selassie of Ethiopia, Janet Jackson, Shirley MacLaine, Gloria Estefan, Heidi Klum, and the Dalai Lama.
