One man band Jamie T plays a crazy mix of rap, reggae and punk that spins from minimalist to complex and back again. Signed to Pacemaker Records he has a quintessentially eclectic London sound that has gained him a cult following. Described as a cross between The Streets and Billy Bragg, Jamie T pedals his own brand of socio-political commentary in a catchy pop format.
He released his first EP 'Betty and The Selfish Sons' in early 2006 featuring Salavador. Jamie T headlinied the 'Panic Prevention Disco' tour supported by The Nudes, The Bishops and The Ludes among others. His latest single 'Sheila' was released in July 2006 and reached number 22 in the UK charts, Jamie's first Top 40 single. He tours the UK this autumn after extensive festival appearances.
Support: Hot Club de Paris
