On the back of the release of his #1 self-titled album, British singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson has announced his biggest ever UK tour including a date at Belfast’s Mandela Hall on January 23.
His tour will be finishing off in Vicar Street in Dublin on January 24.
Earlier this year Jamie was unveiled as the first ever signing to multi-platinum, international superstar Ed Sheeran’s own label Gingerbread Man Records.
Enigmatic and soulful, Jamie first drew Ed’s attention with an early version of his international juggernaut hit Wasn’t Expecting That, which drew the ginger-haired superstar to tears.
Jamie originally hails from Plymouth, and his journey can only be explained as an epic one. It took time for him to find his voice, even longer for him to hone his songs in the sparse, poetic language he has made very much his own. Though he has maintained a core, loyal following who have supported him throughout, only now is that starting to blossom into something far bigger.
His debut release on Gingerbread Man Records was produced by Ed’s longtime collaborator Will Hicks (Lily Allen, Plan B, Bastille) and mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Sons ‘Babel’, Ed Sheeran ‘+’ & ‘X’). #
The album reflects a writer and singer who is confidently, comfortably and completely himself.
