NME award-winner Jamie Treays is a 29-year-old singer/songwriter hailing from Wimbledon, South London, England. He is signed to Virgin Records but released his Betty and The Selfish Sons EP on his own Pacemaker Records label in 2007. His musical style is hard to place, but incorporates elements of rap, reggae, and acoustic genres. Although at the time of writing Jamie has received relatively little mainstream exposure, he has received airplay from BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, who made "Salvador" his single of the week and "Back In The Game" his Hottest Record In The World. In January 2007 Jamie also covered Zane's show on radio 1 whilst Zane was away, working alongside Radio 1 DJ Nihal. On Jo Whiley's show, "Back In The Game" featured as her "pet sound" and more recently his single Sheila was Whiley's Record Of The Week. Jamie also remixed Gorillaz #36 single Kids With Guns. This was a B-side. "Sheila" was also 'playlisted' by Radio 1 thus receiving more airtime across all shows. To date Jamie has released three singles: "Sheila" was released on July 3rd 2006 and got to No.22 in the U.K. singles chart, his first Top 40 hit.

    Sheila goes out with her mate Stella

    To fill us reckless sons with the passions of the heart
