“He’s handsome, talented and turns a room full of people into a party!” That’s what Joan Rivers told Hello! magazine upon hearing Jamsheed Master performing at The Groucho Club in London. The eighties child of a British fashion designer and a city banker, Jamsheed’s earliest musical triumph was as the UK’s youngest Yamaha artist, taking professional engagements as early as 14 years old.
Jamsheed studied music in the UK at Sussex under composer Martin Butler and went on to become an audio engineer and music creator for Disney, delivering sound for a raft of BAFTA-winning releases. As a music arranger, his work appears regularly across the world in productions for La Clique, Cirque du soleil, Adelaide Music Festival, Edinburgh Fringe and Brighton Festival, by artists as diverse as Le Gateau Chocolat, Demi Levato and Anika Noni Rose.
Recipient of an Oppenheim Award for Music and a New Writing South Award for new work, Jamsheed’s influences are broad but his first love is musical theatre and Broadway. His knowledge of the genre is astonishing and his talent for it has taken him all around the world as an entertainer, performing for royalty and celebrity, and has been a regular feature on Holland America Line ships for the past 7 years. Alongside two albums of his own, Jamsheed collaborated with author Andrew Marshall to compose the musical The Puppy That Ate Christmas and is currently in talks to compose an operatic adaptation of Brideshead Revisited.
Early stage appearances included roles in Guys & Dolls, Little Shop Of Horrors, Oklahoma! and West Side Story and regular soloist appearances with The Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under Carl Davis. And as Musical Director: Fame The Musical, City of Angels, Cabaret and Rent.
