  Jamie Redfern    (b. 9 April 1957) Celebrating 57 Years This Month Pop Soloist 
Print Friendly Page 
Jamie Redfern As a three year old, Jamie received ice creams as reward for singing to neighbours in the streets of Liverpool, England, where he was born. Not too many years later he had achieved almost every accolade imaginable and is still to this day introduced as one of Australia's favourite sons and a living legend!

Jamie's first stage appearance was in the production of Oliver at Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne. His first television experience came with his membership in Brian and the Juniors at the tender age of seven, which he chose in preference to a major role in the stage musical Mame. Jamie's unique style was immediately noticed in the show and appearances on Happening 70 and 71 were soon on offer. Musical comedy star Miss Evie Hayes was introduced to Jamie and realised his star quality was about to bloom. Under her early guidance jamie began in the Lewis Young Production of Young Talent Time in April '71, this time as the founding member of the six member team.

Later that same year Jamie won the Outstanding Newcomer Award at the TV Week King of Pop Awards and everybody sat up and took notice. One guset in particular took special notice, Liberace, who was so impressed with Jamie's polish and charisma that he arranged for Jamie to tour the USA and Canada as his special guest star. In January 1972 Jamie and his father left for America. Jamie appeared on major TV shows such as the David Frost Show, Mike Douglas Show and the Johnny Carson Tonight Show where he was asked back for four record breaking return appearances by public demand.

Liberace's conviction that young Jamie had star quality proved right. Over the next sixteen months, Jamie toured with "Uncle Lee" returning to the stage time and time again to standing ovations. Jamie's confidence grew along with the critical praise.

Jamie was on first name basis with such entertainment giants as Debbi Reynolds, Englebert Humperdink, Dianna Ross, Michael Jackson (who Jamie taught to play 10 pin bowling), Bob Hope, Mamma Cass, Ginger Rogers, Elvis Presley (who loaned Jamie the use of his limousine) and Bill Cosby with whom Jamie worked in Las Vegas in an impromptu 15 minute long comedy routine to the absolute delight of their captive and hysterical audience.

Jamie is now married with two daughters and is excited about his return to the stage to perform and share some of his wonderful experiences with some of the people he cares most about, his audience.


Jamie Redfern is also the director of the Australian Showbusiness Academy and hosts his own national top rating television show Jamie Redfern's Superkids which airs weekly on Foxtels Aurora channel 183.


Jamie is looking to return an updated version of Young Talent Time to Australian television and the major television networks interest in the project is quickly gathering momentum - stay tuned !!
