23-year-old Jamie Gatson, also known by his stage name, GATSON, is an American songwriter, producer, and recording artist. Jamie grew up two hours south of Chicago in Champaign, Illinois. Incorporating personal memories of his struggles with poverty, Jamie uses his music as an instrument to illustrate how his life is an everyday struggle. He hopes to inspire his listeners to set goals, persevere, and achieve their dreams.
GATSON’s new album, “Blessed To Be A Blessing,” speaks with honesty and realness from beginning to end. Taking a giant step from the underground into the lime light, GATSON is earning the recognition he has long deserved for his quality rhymes and original sound. In the opening track “Never Be The Same,” he looks forward to the future, but admits he’s still holding onto the pain he’s suffered in the past. Continuing to evolve, the emcee shows his growing confidence with the track, “The Best.” The project ends on a smooth vibe with “Live On.” ATSON is joined by artists Jurdan Bryant and Jzac, who complement his vocals. He wants you to experience how he felt creating these songs―like a blessing.
