October Tour Announced for Jamie Lawson


jamielawsonCurrently mid-way through a sold out UK run of dates, Jamie Lawson has announced a huge 17-date autumn tour, including a date at London’s Brixton O2 Academy on 19th October, 2016. The tour in October kicks off in Dublin on the 4th, and includes Glasgow’s Barrowlands on the 8th, Brixton O2 Academy on the 19th and rounds off in his hometown of Plymouth at the Pavilions on the 27th.

Jamie Lawson is another example of a hugely talented artist who has gone under the radar for so many years, thankfully though last year, Jamie was announced as the first signing to Ed Sheeran’s own label Gingerbread Man Records. Born in St Budeaux nr Plymouth, this will be Jamie’s biggest ever show in his home town.

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

In the whirlwind that followed, Jamie toured with Ed across the world, went from playing to 150 people at London’s Barfly to supporting One Direction on their final full UK arena tour. His self-titled album, released in October 2015, reached #1 in the UK and has sold over a quarter of a million copies worldwide.

Earlier this month, Jamie also announced his new single, fan favourite ‘Cold In Ohio’, taken from his #1 eponymous album.

Furthermore, his juggernaut single Wasn’t Expecting That has to date sold over 400k copies in the UK.
