Jamie T is a popular English indie rock/alternative hip hop musician from London, England. He has been hammering out tunes since 2005 and has three albums in the vaults. Jamie T sounds similar to The Clash, RAT BOY and The Kooks. He is influenced by Oasis, Wu-Tang Clan and The Clash. Robin Hood is an album track from Jamie T's third album Trick (2016).  NME called Robin Hood “insanely fun” and said it is “essentially a full-on tribute to his idols Mick Jones and Joe Strummer c. 1980.”

“Brought up in the backstreets,
Wouldn’t change if he could”
