A crowd favourite at the 2013 National Young Leaders Days — New Zealand singer-songwriter Jamie McDell joins a stellar line-up of inspirational speakers who will be taking the stage at the events for primary, intermediate and secondary school students this year.
Jamie has been writing songs since the age of seven and was signed to a development deal while still at high school. Her debut album Six Strings And a Sailboat was released in November 2012 and shot into the top ten of the NZ album charts, earning her the Tui for Best Pop Album at the 2013 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards. Her second, keenly awaited album Ask Me Anything is set to be released March 27.
Jamie McDell will be performing at every NYLD//15 event, which will be held in major New Zealand cities throughout March, May and June.
