Jamie Lawson is definitely one to watch on music’s upcoming horizon. He was recently signed to Gingerbread Man Records, the label created by British pop-star Ed Sheeran. He is also currently opening for One Direction on the On The Road Again tour. Lawson’s song Wasn’t Expecting That got major air time on the radio in Ireland, as Lawson is from Plymouth, England, and then became wildly popular in the United States. It is now playing on radio stations across our nation. Lawson’s first performance in the U.S. was on The Ellen Show.
According to MTV music, Ed Sheeran grabbed Lawson at the first chance he got and put him as the first signee to his label. “Why hasn’t anyone signed him? Well, I know who I’m going to sign, and it’s Jamie,” Sheeran said.
Everyone should really look out for Jamie Lawson and his folksy, soulful sound. He’s already signed by Ed Sheeran, so he must be pretty cool. Sheeran also stated that it was the only song that made him cry the first time he heard it. That’s pretty impressive.
