Jamie Nichole Haywood is an American Singer-songwriter, and accomplished vocalist from the small south central Indiana city of Martinsville.
Born with a burning passion and desire to sing, Haywood first emerged into the Indiana music scene in 2002 while self- teaching herself guitar and dabbling in songwriting during her college years at Ball State University. Haywood attended Ball State on a full ride golf scholarship, where her passion to write and play music grew stronger. With the support of talented musician friends, Haywood taught herself a simple playlist of songs and began exploring local open mic nights, and opening up shows for friends.
Haywood's passion to learn and write evolved over the next several years into her own uniquely delicate, yet polished and strong blend of americana, country, folk-pop sound.
In 2010 Jamie Nichole won the Indianapolis Acoustic Live Challenge. Voted #1 on her performance of original music.
In 2011 Jamie landed a music placement spot, with her song "missing you", in the Hollywood movie "Frat Party".
Over the next several years Jamie continued to write music, and perform around the midwest, including small tours to Louisville, Nashville, Bowling Green, and all around the south central Indiana area.
In 2013 Haywood started pursuing a professional career in golf. She applied for the LPGA Teaching & Club Professional program and passed her player ability test in 2014. Today she is a class A LPGA professional.
"Golf helps support my passion to play music, Haywood says. I have found music always brings people together, and can also be used in teaching golf. "
Jamie is busy today raising a family, teaching golf, and writing music for her new album which she hopes to be completed by summer of 2020.
