About Jamie

Jamie Joong Watts is a Canadian Chinese woman: a vocalist, a video editor, a music producer, a candle scientist, and a documentarian with a passion for crafting.

Jamie and Justin (her partner of 13 years) moved to Nelson, BC at the start of 2021. Catch them paragliding in Ymir, practicing aerial hoop at Discover Circus, or building big art to bring to that thing in the desert.

Jamie is half of the group DEFIED -

an experimental music project with rapper and songwriter Vs. Their group highlights so far include playing at Shambhala Music Festival, opening for Souls of Mischief, and being booked on the Friendship.

Jamie’s video footage + editing has been featured on the Discovery Channel, Smithsonian Channel, Curiosity Stream, CBC Arts, and more.

Jamie’s undergraduate degree is from University of Toronto where she studied socio-cultural anthropology and Spanish language, though she spent much of her professional career in educational shows for youth. She spent five years touring across Ontario as a performer and mental health advocate in a series of musicals focusing on subjects such as anxiety, depression, and emotional regulation for middle schoolers.
