The Scotsman is slowly growing into one of the standout new artists of 2021 and 'Free as a Bird' has done no harm to this. Jamie is going from strength to strength and I am sure he is going to be prepelled into the limelight sooner rather than later with the level of talent on show in his new single.
After his last release 'In - Away (From the Life)', Jamie has head back to his roots of laid back acoustic guitar, magnified by little riffs and the purest vocals to ever come from Alloa.
With three releases now to his name this year, it is safe to say that Jamie's form could be breaking the mould of the old saying "form is temporary, class is permanent'.
Portraying the feeling of being free may feel like quite a stretch for many of us after the year we've all just experienced, but Jamie tantalises with every word and I honestly cannot wait to be in the crowd singing this one back to the young man.
