Jamie Grey has debuted his festive new single and video, 'Christmas In Our Home Town'

Jamie Grey has debuted his festive new single and video, 'Christmas In Our Home Town'.

The North East singer-songwriter - who's previously reached the semi-final on The Voice UK, and worked with the likes of James Arthur - was inspired by the sentimentality of the season for a heartfelt, stripped-back number.

He says: "I tried to just be honest and write about what the lead up to Christmas rather than the actual day always felt like to me being from our little town of Redcar. We kind of have a strip of pubs and bars in the town centre, which practically the whole town comes out to from around the 21st of December up until Boxing Day. I always remembered coming back from London and so looking forward to seeing old friends and even acquaintances that I’d only see once a year. We’re also famous for the steelworks in our area, and a lot of my friends worked in the local factories before closing down. There’s very much a sense of community and togetherness where we live, as we don’t have a lot. There’s not as you can imagine a great deal of opportunity, we have some of the lowest unemployment levels in the UK and Christmas is a time where all that gets forgotten and everyone comes together to share a beer and have a laugh."
