Jamie Scott to Release Debut Album This Year
Mon, 07 Jul 2014 16:29:16
Hit songwriter Jamie Scott, who is a multi-instrumentalist and whose work you definitely know, despite not knowing him by name or face, will make his solo debut this year on Virgin Records.
So how do you already know Jamie Scott? Well, if you listen to pop music and the radio, you have heard songs he has penned.
Over the last half-decade, Scott has been writing and producing for hitmakers like One Direction ("Story of My Life," "You & I," "More Than This"), Christina Perri featuring Ed Sheeran, Ron Sexsmith, Enrique Iglesias and Marsha Ambrosius and he has been making waves with his Northern soul/indie-pop project Graffiti6.
Now, Scott has worked on a batch of intensely personal songs sparked by the fact that he recently became a father and husband.
Scott has brought songs together to create an album that's unabashedly emotional but gracefully sophisticated in both its lush and lovely, '70s-folk-rock-influenced sound and intimate storytelling of an autographically inspired couple.
My Hurricane is due out this year on Virgin Records.
