Jamie Scott and the Town The 25-year-old British soul man Jamie Scott first shimmed onto the scene with his first album Park Bench Theories that charted every stage. For a man who first picked up a guitar aged seven and taught himself to play, music was clearly a natural compulsion, and the one he was used to giving in to. He grew up listening to his parents’ classic albums and was influenced by artists like James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Carole King, Wilson Pickett and Donnie Hathaway. His dexterous and soulful voice is somewhere between the likes of Jeff Buckley meets Stevie Wonder.
