Graffiti6 is a pop/rock duo founded in London, UK in 2008 consisting of singer-songwriter Jamie Scott and prolific Writer/Producer and DJ, Tommy D.

Writer/producer/DJ, Tommy (Jay-Z, Kanye West, Kylie Minogue, KT Tunstall) and artist Jamie (of Jamie Scott & The Town who toured with Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson previously) made a collection of songs that was later called “Stare In To The Sun.” The title track was chosen to soundtrack a TV ad campaign for The Sun newspaper. Sony ATV publishing submitted the song to The Sun newspaper and they used it for the advertising campaign. The exposure they got from the campaign encouraged Jamie and Tommy to write and record even more music, including “Annie You Save Me,” “Free” and “Stone In My Heart.”

The band decided to put out their own music on their own label. EP “Stone In My Heart”, was released in March 2010, Single ‘Annie You Save Me in July 2010. Band was named New Band Of The Day at The Guardian Newspaper (UK) and an Artist to Watch at LP33. – Excerpt from Last.Fm
