Until recently, Jumpin’ Jamie has been best known as the Dinosaur Troubadour at Field Station: Dinosaurs (Leonia, NJ), But with the release of his debut album, “Kookie,” the pop rocker dives head first into the kindie scene with this bold, confident, and undeniably fun collection. He has played hundreds of shows at everything from birthday parties for a crowd of 12, to a stadium for crowds of 12,000 (Citi Field, NYC) and everything in between including Wizard World Comic Con (Chicago and Philadelphia), Baltimore Comic-Con (Baltimore, MD), and Kids Read Comics Convention (Ann Arbor, MI). He has been spotted on television on The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS (where Dave talks about "The Mighty T-Rex") and the Season 3 finale of Celebrity Wife Swap on ABC. His clients have included Seventh Generation, Twitter, and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld.
"Kookie": Jumpin' Jamie's debut album"Kookie" features 12 songs produced by 5 different producers including Marty Beller and Danny Weinkauf from Grammy Award winning band They Might Be Giants and over 40 special guests including Peter Tork from The Monkees.

"Jamie approaches his subjects with a childlike inquisitive mind and takes them to an energy level that the kids will respond to." -Broadway World
"Jumpin' Jamie has managed to traverse the difficult pathway between simple and difficult. His debut CD, Kookie, delivers power-pop, parody, and positivity in equal measure." -GeekDad
"An album made with love for the peewee punks! This high energy album covers a range of relatable childhood themes as well as some nods to seminal kid moments for those who grew up in the 80s." -Eat The Marshmallow
"The best kindie musicians strike a tone that can be endearing, enthusiastic or challenging, but never patronizing. Listening to “Kookie,” you can tell Jamie loves this style of rock, and knows his audience." - (cool) progeny
"This high energy album will have listeners rocking and rolling all over the house.” -Bookworm Bev
"The song is awesome. Seriously. Good luck getting it out of your la-la-la-head." -Tenor Dad (on "Astronauts Love")
"It's got an angular pop melody reminiscent of early Elvis Costello, with a la-la-la chorus -- it's a charming slice of kindie pop-rock." -Zooglobble (on "Astronauts Love)
"I love the different styles of music on this album and in styles of music (REM, Green Day, etc) that we also play on Rock the Cradle Radio and The Current. This album fits in really well." -Program Director of Minnesota Public Radio
