About this album

So why give your time and attention to Jamie Lawson? It’s not as if there’s any obvious shortage of young singer-songwriters right now. Far from it. Wherever you turn, there’s yet another fresh-faced hopeful coming at you with a guitar and a claim on the future. But even in a crowded marketplace there will always be room for an artist who has what it takes to be better than the rest. And if you love music and have a heart and a pair of ears, you’ll recognise within the space of just one song that here is exactly that sort of someone.

Influenced by the likes of Crowded House, R.E.M. & Leonard Cohen, alongside the books of John Irvings and the poetry of Ian Hamilton, Jamie Lawson’s debut album, ‘[album]The Pull of The Moon[album]’, features 12 remarkable songs that ruminate on the subjects of hope and hopeless despair, beating the odds to overcome adversity, break-ups, murder, the similarities of the music industry and prostitution, the nostalgia of home and our own destinies.

Currently residing on the north coast of Cornwall, Jamie spends most of the year living in a caravan overlooking the sea. “I like the freedom it provides. There aren’t as many of the distractions of modern life, so I have the space to write songs. I’m not Bon Iver, though!”

Before settling in Cornwall, Jamie spent two years working and playing in the clubs of Ireland, fully immersing himself in the music scene and performing alongside the likes of Mundy, The Four Of Us, Glen Hansard of The Swell Season, Tom Baxter and Gemma Hayes. Three tracks on ‘The Pull of The Moon’ were written during this inspirational time in Ireland.
