Jamie T is a British singer-songwriter. He is a gold-selling, Mercury prize-nominated artist from Wimbledon, South London. Jamie T has released two albums already. The first is Panic Prevention (Mercury Prize nod) in 2007 and Kings & Queens in 2009. Five years have passed since Jamie T has released music. During the stretch, the punk-inspired singer-songwriter (born Jamie Alexander Treays) went traveling in America on an isolated but essential voyage of self-discovery. Perhaps this is why Carry On The Grudge contains a pensive air of personal sadness and longing. Words fit snugly into melody, there are rattling post-Clash rhythms, with irreverent tips of the hat to Prince Buster, Madness and The Who. Carry On The Grudge is out now on Epitaph Records in the US, and Virgin Records in the UK where it debuted at #4 on the UK charts. According to Mojo, it’s a “staggering collection of incredible songs.” And in their 9/10 star review, NME said it’s "one of the most original, exciting musician of the last decade." It’s “a modern original” said The Guardian.
