I received some very sad news today. Jamie Arlon, my first (and last) music publisher, passed away after a brief fight with cancer. He was younger than me.
I’ll always be deeply grateful to Jamie for giving me my first big break – for signing me, believing in me, in my songs and for putting up with me generally when I was being too precious about it all. He was one of the good guys in the music industry. I wish I’d had a chance to tell him that. RIP Jamie. xx
