MEMBERS: Jamie Scott (vocals, guitar), TommyD (guitar, production)
ALBUM: Free EP, out now

Jamie Scott had already established himself as an acoustic-based singer-songwriter in Europe and Asia when he met producer and multi-instrumentalist Tommy “TommyD” Danvers—and his music took a surprising turn into electronica-based pop and soul territory. “For me, the unexpectedness of the sound is the whole point,” Scott says. The two began working together in 2009, initially on a Scott solo project. “I was already a fan of Jamie’s music,” Danvers says. “He was playing in this intricate style with amazing lyrics, and I just said, ‘Look, you’ve got to let rip on this, mate.’” The newly formed group released its U.K. debut, Colours, last year, and was signed to a major-label deal in the U.S. a few months ago—prompting Scott to pull up stakes and head for Los Angeles. “I’ve always wanted to come to America,” he says. “The minute my manager said, ‘Let’s do it, let’s move,’ I said, ‘I’ve got my bags packed, man.’”
