Born and raised in St Budeaux, Plymouth, England, the acoustic artist made quite an impression within Ireland when his hit song “Wasn’t Expecting That” became an overnight YouTube sensation and had peaked number 3 on the Irish Singles Chart! But it wasn’t until he got back in contact with celebrity singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran that his career finally took off worldwide.

 

 

Jamie Lawson was the very first Artist signed by Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Record Label and he scored a #1 smash hit on the UK charts with his very first release “Wasn’t Expecting That”.

 

 

“Wasn’t Expecting That” has already proven a worldwide favorite, with top 3 success in Ireland and Australia as well as top 10 chart popularity in New Zealand. In addition, the single has since been certified double-platinum by Australia’s ARIA and gold by New Zealand’s Recorded Music NZ following Lawson’s recent run as support act on those countries’ legs of Sheeran’s epic “x” worldwide tour.  Immediately following a televised performance on the national morning show “BBC Breakfast,” both “Wasn’t Expecting That” and “JAMIE LAWSON” rocketed to #1 on the iTunes “Top Songs” and “Top Albums” charts in the UK.

As Lawson elaborates:

 

“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 UK 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.”

Fitting iNCH into a caricature of her namesake would be a misnomer.

 

Always surprising people with her breadth of musicianship and depth of personality, iNCH is never afraid to venture into the discomforting umbra of artistry to push her own limits and challenge popular perceptions. One can imagine her as a musical nomad with the spirit animal of a mouse deer — endangered, private and mysterious, yet when revealed is honest and vulnerable — a contradiction of meekness and artfulness. Such unpredictability makes this pint-sized Singaporean singer- songwriter all the more an exciting paradox to embark on a musical adventure with.

A performance veteran in her own right,

 

she has a solid breadth of experience on the world’s stage — from major local events such as Baybeats, Singapore International Festival of the Arts, Singapore Arts Festival, Singapore Night Festival, F1 Grand Prix, Youth Olympic Games — to other lauded arts festivals in Asia and beyond, including Beijing MIDI Music Festival, South by Southwest Festival (SxSW) in Texas, CMJ Music Marathon in New York, TEDxWomen in Washington, and the Canadian Music Week in Toronto. As a further nod to her abilities, iNCH opened for international acts Katy Perry, Vampire Weekend, and The Like, and even appeared in theatre (icon Kuo Pao Kun’s Lao Jiu).
