Ha that’s a good question there’s a lot of influences on the EP the likes of Jake Bugg, James Bay, Ed Sheeran and Load era Metallica (If any “true” Metallica fan says Load and Reload are bad albums they aren’t true fans hahaha)
Yeah I’m playing the Garage in Glasgow on the 27th of November and a few gigs in speculation with the O2 ABC in December, I’m planning a tour in the spring of 2016 for the EP from Glasgow to Liverpool which should be fun
Q7. If you were a biscuit what would you be and why?
Hmm if i was a biscuit now there’s a hard question …… I think if I was to be a biscuit it would probably be a jammy dodger I mean come on who doesn’t love a wee jammy dodger now and again unless you’re allergic to them…. If so then I apologize haha
Q8. If you were to pick any of your songs to put in a time capsule what would you pick and why
There is a song on the EP called Let Me Go and it’s about being young, having fun and making mistakes I think putting that in a time capsule would be pretty cool to open when you’re old and have a nostalgic memory of when you were young and care free…. Tumbler eat you’re heart out ha
Q9. If you could collaborate with with any band/artist past or present who would it be and why?
Ha what’s with all the hard questions haha I think any of my influences would be amazing to collaborate with the one that stands out the most would be either Stevie Wonder or Noel Gallagher both of them are just geniuses within their own right and have change so many ways we listen to music today.
Q10. How does singing and recording affect your personal life?
Meh it doesn’t really that is a part of my personal life there’s nothing better than just sitting in a quiet room and writing a good melody or chord progression I tend to find that very therapeutic in someways and keeps me from going absolutely crazy from time to time
Q11. You said your EP has a lot of influences from Ed Sheeran to Metallica, but which band/artist do you admire the most?
Don’t think i can say who I admire the most both very different styles of music but they do share the same enthusiasm and drive as one another they both have a love for music and do it the way they like too, of course Metallica have been my childhood band and James Hetfield is a god like figure to me and I look up to his persona and stage presence cause in my opinion he is one of the best front men ever, but Ed has written some of the most beautiful melodies in the past decade even if you are not a fan you have to admire his success within the short time scale he has been around for and for one man to sell out Wembley and perform a 2 hour set each night himself then wow, that is a genius amount of talent
Q12. Great we will try to get along to one of your shows to see you. Is there anything else you wish to let your fans know?
Yeah, December 4th is the release date for the EP titled Me Myself and I, I hope everyone enjoys it thank you for being the amazing fans that you are, without you music would be pointless. Thank You.
Thank you for being a good sport Jamie and doing this with us! We appreciate it!
