Jazz crooner JAMIE CULLUM had an unlikely inspiration during his teenage years – he was a huge fan of cult British rock band THE WEDDING PRESENT.
The singer /pianist was obsessed with the group when he was a youngster, and vowed to build a career in music after attending one of their shows.
He tells Britain’s Q magazine, “The Wedding Present were the first band I saw live. I went to see them at Bristol University when I was 14… I even remember my mum dropping me off. After that gig I knew I wanted to be a musician.”
