Jamie Webster

Saturday 28th May 2022

The Top Ten success of Jamie Webster’s 2020 debut album, We Get By, buoyed by the runaway success of mega-streaming tracks like come-down anthem, Weekend In Paradise, firmly established the singer-songwriter in the fraternity of gifted, socially-aware, young British songwriters. Webster then iced the cake with news that he’d become the first, ever UK Folk Chart Number One artist later in the year. How the straight-singing lad from Liverpool scored such success isn’t lost on the people-powered songwriter and he gives back to his loyal fans once again with his electrified second album, Moments and a run of high-profile UK Tour dates.

Still regularly and contentedly lodged in the UK Folk Chart Top Ten almost a year later thanks to the endlessly loyal following that have helped make his dreams come true, Webster almost affects a ‘Dylan Goes Electric’ moment with his newest material. He decamped to the legendary Rockfield Studios with his band of elite musicians and esteemed, long-term Manic Street Preachers producer, Dave Eringa in early 2021 to go bigger, better and louder. Like many, Webster got lost in music as the walls closed in during the locked-down winter and, whether freshly fascinated by the back catalogue of Talking Heads or rekindling teenage loves like Paulo Nutini, a world of vivid influences drifted into this exciting batch of new songs.
