Money Mondays

This week we’re going to be starting off with a favourite of mine, Jamie T. Nicknamed as a “one man Arctic Monkeys”, Jamie Alexander Treays is a 23yr old English singer/songwriter with a flare for London grime style rap. He’s been described as what would be the result if Billy Bragg and Mike Skinner were to have a lovechild.

Jamie left regular school at 16 and enrolled at The BRIT School for performing arts. The school gave him space to grow and experiment with his unique sound. The school was also home to famous names such as Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Kate Nash, Leona Lewis, Jack Penate and Adele.

Jamie T’s first album, Panic Prevention, was released in January 2007 and soon became a hit with singles If You Got Money & Calm Down Dearest reaching #13 & 9 respectively.  He toured the UK’s festival roster with his band The Pacemakers and closed out the year winning the NME award for Best Solo Artist.

Sept. 2009 and Jamie T has released his 2nd studio album, his first single Sticks ‘N’ Stones reaching #15 in the charts and his next single Chaka Demus tipped for more success.
