If they have a mantelpiece, they’ll need to make a little room on it – because MK’s urban aces JSMV have just bagged a gong at the Essex Entertainment Awards!
And it wasn’t any old award, you know – they took the title of Best Original Artist 2015. Nice job!
“We were completely overwhelmed,” Jamie told us.
“It was a real moment of madness when our name was announced.
“The people sat behind us screamed and we were in shock.
“We walked on stage and probably mumbled a rubbish speech,” he realises, “...but it meant so much to us to pick the award up.
“To be voted as the best original artist in the South of England. Wow!”
April has been a pretty swell month all round for the duo – they started out on tour with Bars and Melody, joining the Syco signings playing to sell-out crowds around the country.
The response to their sounds generally involved lots and lots of screaming girls!
It’s an understatement to say they went down well.
“Knowing that so many other talented and more established acts could have been chosen makes it all the more meaningful,” Mr Vee said.
“People are seeing us for what we are and are realising that we are serious about what we do.
“To have that recognised was a special moment for us.
“Thank you to BAM for having us on the tour.”
It has been a triumphant start to the new year, but there is much more to come.
“We are booked onto loads of events across the country and can’t wait to meet more of our supporters,” Mister Vee added.
Recording new music is high on the list of things to do.
“Music is a priority. It has been a while since we released anything new.
“Demand is growing and now it is down to us to deliver.”
Work is already under way, Jamie promised: “...and we hope to have some singles out by the end of the year.”
