Thanks to the tours with her parents, Jamie managed to perform on the same stage with Johnny Cash, Crystal Gayle and Dolly Parton. She used to stand at the side of the stage and watch endlessly.
Jamie's parents, Jimmy and Julie Murphy, are professional musicians as well. When Jamie was young, her parents took her and her sister Samantha with them to tour all over America. When in high-school, their parents broke up. Jamie stayed with her father in LA, her mother moved to Australia.
When visiting her mother in Australia in the early 90s, she was hired by Kylie Minogue as a back vocalist, and toured with her for 2 years.
Jamie was studying in the Beverly Hills High School in California. Her class mates were Jonathan Silverman and David Schwimmer (Friends).

Jamie O'Neal: (about the hit Trying to Find Atlantis) The first time I heard this song, it just spoke to me about my past and how long it takes to find the perfect man and how you have to kiss a lot of toads before you meet the right prince.
Jamie O'Neal: (about the future from a past point) I knew that one day, hopefully, I'd be up there on the stage singing my own songs - and especially with Dolly Parton, because she wrote everything.
Jamie O'Neal: I'm kind of a restless spirit. Even now, living in Nashville and having our own home is fantastic, but I also think, 'I'd love to go live in Colorado or Montana or somewhere, experience that'. I'm always thinking of the next place or the next experience.
Jamie O'Neal: The whirlwind of my recent successes was just a case of timing after years of hard work.
