Mercury Music Prize 2007 nominees: Jamie T

We profile Jamie T ahead of tonight's big announcement

Name: Jamie T

Album: ‘Panic Prevention’

Odds: 4/1


Who: The troubadour from Wimbledon Jamie T’s debut has become the soundtrack to a thousand teenage angst fests which saw him claim the Best Solo artists at the Shockwaves NME Awards this year only a couple of months after the album’s release. With the title inspired by the attacks he once suffered, the album shows the scope of his talent. From multi-layered tracks like ‘Sheila’ to stripped down acoustic numbers like ‘Back In The Game’, bound together with mixtape-like interludes of talking, this is the sound of an artist at the beginning of a long career.

NME.COM will be bringing you the result live from the London ceremony, so come back from 9pm tonight to see who has won.
