"Jamie Lawson" is an English singer-songwriter and musician from Plymouth, United Kingdom. He was the first artist signed by Ed Sheeran to his new label, Gingerbread Man Records. Lawson is best known for his hit single "Wasn't Expecting That".
A seasoned performer on the Irish music scene, acoustic singer/songwriter Jamie Lawson eventually found fame when one of his tracks became an overnight YouTube sensation. Born and raised in Plymouth, England, Lawson picked up the guitar at age eight and, influenced by Crowded House, R.E.M., and Leonard Cohen, began his musical career in a covers band while still at school. At 17, he discovered his voice, and spent the next few years performing across the Irish club circuit with the likes of Gemma Hayes, Glen Hansard, and Tom Baxter. He released his debut album, Last Night Stars on his own Allotment Recordings label in 2003, though it wasn't until his second album, seven years later that he would find greater success.
Lawson is due to make his first US appearance on The Ellen Show 10th November, 2015. Fanart Banner
