Jamie Stewart (born as James Alec Stewart in 1964, January 31st in Harrow, England) is the former bassist of the 1980s British post-punk/hard rock group The Cult.[1] He played bass guitar and keyboards on each of The Cult's first four albums (Dreamtime, Love, Electric and Sonic Temple) and rhythm guitar on tour in 1987.

After leaving The Cult, Stewart worked as a record producer in Canada. In 1997, he produced 7 songs for the Canadian band Ripped, with six of these appearing on their album Bloodshot, which was released in 2002 through EMI.

He briefly played with Adrian Smith during the latter's time out of Iron Maiden around 1993-94, playing bass on Smith's project The Untouchables.

On October 10, 2009 Jamie Stewart re-joined his former band mates from The Cult onstage at the Royal Albert Hall, London to perform "The Phoenix" and "She Sells Sanctuary" as a second and final encore to a live performance of their 1985 album Love.

Stewart currently lives with his wife and family in Oxfordshire. He has been vegetarian since 1985, and became a Christian in 1998. His amplifier is on display at Hard Rock Cafe Toronto.
