Hailing from the sea side town of Redcar in the North East of England, Jamie Grey has come a long way since his journey into music began.
He attracted major attention stateside from DJ Khaled and Epic Records in 2018, having written the song "They Don't Want You To Win" — in which he used a series of famous DJ Khaled snapchat quotes to make up the lyrics. Jamie signed a publishing deal with Downtown in 2019. He then went on to pen James Arthur's smash single "Falling Like The Stars," which has amassed over 170 million Spotify streams and been used in TV shows such as American Idol, Britain's Got Talent and Love Island. He also penned the track "Maybe" from the U.K. number two album You. Jamie was then offered the chance to support Arthur on his European tour.
Taking inspiration from singer-songwriters such as James Morrison, Paolo Nutini and Daniel Merriweather, Jamie's style is organic, raw and honest. His soulful tone is rich and warm, which he fuses with his acoustic guitar and piano. Jamie pours his heart out with real emotion on every track.
By himself, Jamie has built a loyal fan base since the release of his first single, "What Matters Most," in December of 2018. He then went on to release songs such as "Broken," in which he completely bared his soul regarding a failed relationship, and his latest release, "Just For Tonight."
2020 is all about content for Jamie. He plans on releasing his five track debut EP as singles, with "Just For Tonight" being the first.
