Can you believe it's already day 9? I can't!
We've already had some incredible performances on this years edition of the Birthday Countdown.
And let me tell you something - there are a lot more fantastic performances yet to come.
I can't wait to share all the videos we've created to celebrate our birthday!
What is #HITSBC16?
HITSBC16 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2016.
Throughout the entire month of February, we will be celebrating this website's fourth birthday.
One artist/band a day is going to wish us a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for this sweet occasion.
Who is performing today?
He is a singer/songwriter originally from Plymouth, UK now based in London, UK.
To describe his story, I'd need to write a couple of pages. To avoid that, I'll try to give you the "quick JL guide", but please make sure to check out Jamie's full bio.
The musician from the United Kingdom has been writing and releasing music for years, he's been gigging loads and has built himself a loyal fanbase.
Between our first interview in November 2014 and this one, taped in November 2015,
Jamie got signed to Ed Sheeran's label (Gingerbread Man Records), supported acts such as One Direction on tour, appeared on countless radio and TV shows and released his selftitled record which he's now taking on the road.
What is special about this video?
It was unexpected (yes, that's a pun!) and it was beautiful. We filmed this video just before Jamie went on stage to play his sold out show in Stuttgart.
This performance showcases the honesty behind the song and it also gives you a good idea why we all adore Jamie!
Now, dear HITS readers, enjoy Jamie Lawson performing "Wasn't Expecting That" just for our birthday!
Where can we find Jamie Lawson online?

Who do we need to thank?
Jamie himself for organising this video session himself and for being so sweet to house in the sand. It was so wonderful to meet up and catch up on things.
You sure deserve having an amazing time, Jamie! See you soon!
