While Jamie studied Broadcasting and Marine Biology in college, in time his interest in music won out, and in 1991 he moved to Nashville in search of a career. Slocum first established himself in Music City as a songwriter, and the group Seneca scored a hit with one of his tunes, â€śWe Got A Good Thing Goinâ€™.â€ť After Slocum signed a publishing deal with Mike Curb, the veteran music mogul encouraged him to record an album of his own. Slocumâ€™s debut album, Somewhere Under Heaven, was released by Curb in 1996, and earned Slocum a Dove Award nomination for â€śBest New Artist of the Year.â€ť Freedom Records released Slocumâ€™s next full-length, Grace Changes Everything; the title track became a hit on Adult Contemporary radio.. After 2001â€™s Someone Like You, Slocum returned to Curb Records for the 2003 release My Heart Knows. In 2009, Slocum released the album Dependence, and the title song became a Number One Adult Contemporary radio hit. â€śDependenceâ€ť was also nominated for a Dove Award as Inspirational Song of the Year. Two other songs from the album, â€śFragileâ€ť and â€śJust Another Mountain,â€ť were also AC successes. Slocumâ€™s sixth album, Safe, was releasedÂ in April 2016.
