[Jamieson’s] score has a laudable vim and a magpie vitality, shifting between electronic and symphonic sounds

The Telegraph
The Telegraph on U.Me

…the music and lyrics of U.Me are uniquely passionate and inspiring beyond current musical theatre trends. The rhythms, melodies and harmonies tell a breath-taking story of their own but with detail and logic that fits together like the most satisfying of jigsaw puzzles.

London Theatre Reviews (Online) on U.Me

...the gorgeous jazz score – played to perfection  by Theo Jamieson's smoking-hot eight piece band – is full of raunchy wit and rage and rue.

The Independent
on The Wild Party

That immediate sense of getting these characters... is compounded by a series of songs by composer Theo Jamieson… which feel lively, contemporary and immersive. That’s due in part to Jamieson’s infectious melodies being performed by the BBC Philharmonic
