Jamie-Lee Dimes is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist artist with a global perspective - one that comes from her spending time living in Australia, New York City, Los Angeles, The California Desert and Mexico, earning her a coveted slot as an official artist for SXSW 2020. The new single and video was premiered by Atwood Magazine and stated the following about the release, "What Jamie-Lee Dimes provides with “Goodbye” is a sound of unimaginable sincerity and beauty. The intoxication the song elicits in unmatched and acts as further proof that Dimes is an artist to be on the lookout for." Adiran Vargas at Atwood Mag Now back home in Queensland, Dimes is ready to release music she has been writing over the last few months and we are excited today to share with you her latest single - Goodbye.
Goodbye was written in Mexico at the end of a dark chapter of events and a lot of heaviness coming all at once. I was in this transition between new chapters and had endings of toxic relationships. I had been stranded in the California desert alone, was dealing with a lot of personal life obstacles, grief, death, heaviness. I guess I was trying to find peace within horrible situations through a song, and I was breaking away from it all, finding my freedom again. It's a pretty light spin on a very dark period - Jamie Lee Dimes.
