British musician Jamie Lawson who is best known for his hit single, “Wasn’t Expecting That” is expected to perform in Singapore for the first time this 27 April 2016, 8pm at the University Cultural Centre (UCC) Theatre, National University of Singapore.
The 40-year-old singer-songwriter was the first artist to be signed by Ed Sheeran’s new record label, Gingerbread Man Records, after his hit song “Wasn’t Expecting That” became an overnight YouTube sensation and had peaked at No. 3 on the Irish Singles Chart.
After signing to Ed Sheeran’s record, Lawson’s self-titled album peaked at No. 1 on the U.K. Albums Chart in 2015, and from then on, he started to gain more popularity abroad as he supported Sheeran on the leg of his “x Tour”, and also One Direction on their 2015 “On the Road Again Tour” in the U.K. and Ireland.
“I got a text out of the blue saying that Ed was doing a secret show in Dublin and he wanted me to open up for him. After that he invited me out on the European and U.K. tour that he was doing which was incredible. He told me that nobody could make a Jamie Lawson album better than Jamie Lawson, and his main ethos is work as hard as you can and be nice to everyone. I try and take that on board,” Lawson said in a press release by LAMC Productions.
Tickets for Lawson’s debut concert in Singapore will be sold at sistic.com.sg with prices starting at SGD108 onwards.
