JAYMES

Unlike Rolling Stones musician, Keith Richards, Jaymes Stephen was comfortable in the tree and did not fall out! Its a musician thing, and Jaymes knows a thing of two about the music industry.

Born in Peterborough, Ontario in 1992, Jaymes took Music Business Management at Durham College in Oshawa. His third and final year was an intern year where he worked with Rooftop Agency and had many clients with whom he worked including ACDC. One of the more memorable things Jaymes had to do for ACDC was to source a military tank to drive around the streets of downtown Toronto! Strangely enough, one is not really allowed to drive a tank in the city, so a large military troop truck had to suffice for that gig!

After graduation, over the last three years, he has been running his own event company booking bands, holding concerts and throwing CD release parties for clients. A songwriter and musician, Jaymes also has his own band where he plays guitar and is lead vocalist.

JAYMES FUN FACT: He used to work for President's Choice, Superdogs, the dog agility and performance team. In Toronto, Superdogs is always a huge attraction at the Royal Winter Fair. Jaymes laughs as he recalls the dogs suddenly stopping in their routine to relieve themselves!
