Currently on the road supporting One Direction, Jamie Lawson will embark on his biggest ever headline UK tour next month.

And he will be stopping at Nottingham’s Rock City on January 19.

The tour comes on the back of him hitting the top of the UK album charts with this self-titled debut album.

Earlier this year Jamie was unveiled as the first ever signing to multi-award-winning Ed Sheeran’s own label Gingerbread Man Records.

Enigmatic and soulful, Jamie first drew Ed’s attention with an early version of his huge international hit Wasn’t Expecting That, which reduced Sheeran to tears.

“I first became aware of Jamie Lawson a few years ago, after hearing his track Wasn’t Expecting That,” said Ed.

“I very rarely get emotional over a track, but that song stopped me dead.

“He manages to put across such raw emotion within his work, and I knew immediately that I wanted to work with this guy in some way.

“Having decided to start my own label Gingerbread Man Records with my label Atlantic Records, the first artist I had to sign was Jamie.

“Starting Gingerbread Man Records means I can put music I love out there on a huge platform.

“And Jamie seemed like the perfect choice for my first release.”

It’s taken Jamie Lawson a long time to find his voice and hone his songs.

But it has been worth the wait and the core, loyal following who have supported him throughout is now becoming something much bigger.
