An Ivor Novello Award-winning musician hopes to dazzle audiences on his new tour.

Jamie Lawson is a seasoned performer on the Irish music scene but found fame when one of his tracks became an overnight YouTube sensation.

He released his debut album, Last Night Stars, in 2003 but it was not until his second album, The Pull 
Of The Moon, seven years later that he saw success.

It took off the following year when the YouTube video of one of its tracks, Wasn’t Expecting That, was played on The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show on Today FM.

In 2015 he was the first act to be signed to Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Records and has toured with the award-winning phenomenon and One Direction.

Jamie Lawson will be at the Trinity Centre, in Bristol’s Trinity Road, on March 11 at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £18 in advance, are available from www.3ca.org.uk or 01179 351200.
