Kamie Jacobs Bolen is best known for her “Sing Me A Scripture” series, her annual Primary theme CD, and her musical arrangements for LDS artist Jenny Phillips. She also enjoys writing piano solos, children’s music, and inspirational songs that educate or tell a story.
Here’s what she’s been up to in recent years:
2010 – Kamie’s song “Here Am I” is performed at the Relief Society Music Festival at Temple Square in Salt Lake City and is published on lds.org. (Also available on the Free Downloads page of this site.) Kamie receives an award at the LDS Music Industry Workshop and Songwriting Competition for her musical tale, “The Annual Dinosaur Ball”, and while there, meets Jenny Phillips. She writes six arrangements for Jenny’s next three albums, and has a baby. (Her first in 8 years!)
2011 – Kamie writes four arrangements for Jenny, and together they host the Young Singer/Songwriter Workshop and Vocal Competition (for kids ages 8-15) at the Bolen’s home. Kamie’s song “Rooms” is performed at the Relief Society Music Festival at Temple Square and is acquired for publication on lds.org. (Available on the Free Downloads page of this site.) She writes and produces her first album, “Sing Me A Scripture: The Book of Mormon — Volume I”. She produces her first video and creates two websites — singmeascripture.com and kamiebolen.com.
2012 – Kamie writes and produces her 2nd album “I Am a Child of God: Songs for Primary”. Her song “1 Nephi 3:7″ is acquired for publication on lds.org. She writes “The First Noel” for Jenny’s first Christmas album, and begins writing “Sing Me a Scripture Volume II”.
2013 – Kamie creates a new website, merging her two sites into one. She writes and produces her 3rd album, “Sing Me a Scripture: the Book of Mormon — Volume II”, and releases it in August. She writes and produces her 4th album, “Families Are Forever: Songs for Primary” and releases it two months later. She arranges two songs (“Share His Light” and “Better Than You Think You Are”) for Jenny’s 2014 youth album “Come Unto Christ”.
