Jamie Walters is the self-titled debut from American actor and singer, Jamie Walters. The album's first single "Hold On," reached number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100. It placed at number 52 on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles of 1995 list. The album sold over 1 million copies and was certified platinum.
Sara Sytsma of AllMusic gave it three out of five stars and was given an "Album Pick" tag, calling it "a well-produced collection of mainstream, adult contemporary-oriented pop/rock." But Sytsma commented that Walters "doesn't possess a great voice, but the producers of the album are quite talented; in their hands, he sounds very good."
When asked about this tour Reb Beach answered:
"Jamie Walters was THE funnest tour I ever did. It was just Jamie and I, first class all the way through Europe. Jamie and I became great friends and we wrote the song "You" together. With the exception of Kip Winger, he is probably my favorite person in the world (meaning "male person")."
