Name: Jamie Eddie
Where are you from? Edmonton, AB
How many years have you been in the music industry? 7 years
When and how did you first get involved in music? I loved to dance from a young age and that appreciation for music lead me to where I am now.
What instruments/type of music do you play? I am a DJ who plays on Turntables. I play Hip-Hop, Drum & Bass, and various types of electronic music.
How did you first find out about the Legacy Children’s Foundation Gift of Music Programs? A friend who knew the foundation well approached me about getting involved and once I found out more during my meeting with Darryl I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of.
What is your favorite part about working with the foundation? My favorite part working with the foundation is I am both a program coordinator and instructor! Not only do I get to work one on one with our students but I also get to help build and facilitate programs. Currently we are launching year 2 of our Direct Drive DJ Program which is very exciting!
What is your favorite song/band right now? In the DJ world we tend to listen to a lot of underground production where sounds are constantly changing and evolving! If I had to choose a song our readers could relate to I really like that song on the radio ‘7 Years’ by Lukas Graham.
If you could have any superpower what would it be? I think it would be cool to be able to instantly play any song on every musical instrument possible ... but we all know that takes a little practice ☺
What an interesting fact about you? An interesting fact about me is that I have performed at every major city in Canada and have also toured Costa Rica!
