Continuing his exploration of diverse musical landscapes, Jamie's single Réalta is a rich and uplifting instrumental piano piece, celebrating the enchanting experience of celestial gazing during the wee small hours amidst the darkness of the Irish countryside.

His song, Eyrie, marks a collaboration with Swedish neo-classical composer Peter Sandberg. Co-written in London and recorded in Uppsala, Sweden, the track features a cinematic ambiance, blending Jamie's haunting Irish low-whistle with Peter's sweeping orchestral arrangement for 18 string players. Eyrie captures a unique synergy, underscoring Jamie Duffy's evolution as a versatile and innovative musician.

Notably, Jamie's musical journey continues to unfold with exciting collaborations, including a recent partnership with Kingfishr to release a new version of their debut single, Flowers-Fire. This rendition, released in October, 2023, introduces a piano, replacing the acoustic guitar picking of the original version. Eddie's low vocals seamlessly intertwine with Jamie's melodic piano, creating a dynamic that builds in tempo, incorporating banjo strums, and culminating in an epic yet vulnerable ending. The collaboration showcases Jamie Duffy's ability to infuse his distinctive style into diverse musical landscapes, solidifying his status as a rising star in the industry.
