HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The organisers of Music Matters – the Asia Pacific Music Forum are delighted to announce that the grand finale to this year’s event at the Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong will feature an exclusive performance from multimillion album selling Jamie Cullum. As a part of the closing session, Jamie will be interviewed at the piano about his life and inspirations by music industry legend, Ralph Simon. Additionally, Music Matters delegates will have the unique opportunity to ask the 29-year-old singer-songwriter-pianist questions on his experiences as an artist in today’s music business.

With 4 million albums sold, a Grammy, a Brit and 2 Golden Globe nominations to his name, Jamie Cullum certainly knows a lot about international success in the music industry. Rocketed to fame in his early 20’s, Jamie has taken the music world by storm with a headline tour of over 40 countries, and a collection of smash hits. In Asia specifically he has gone Platinum in Singapore, and Gold in Hong Kong, Indonesia and Thailand. Jamie has toured extensively throughout Asia, including Japan at Fuji Rock, Hong Kong and Singapore.

“It is so exciting to be back in Hong Kong and I am honoured to be given the opportunity to perform at Music Matters,” says Jamie. “Asia is always a highlight for me on tour; amazing food and a huge wealth of musical talent. The fans in Asia rock, they never fail to provide a warm reception”

Now in its fourth year, Music Matters continues to attract the most prominent figures in the music business to Hong Kong.

“We are delighted to showcase such an electric and exciting success story like Jamie at our event,” says Jasper Donat, Director of Hong Kong-based event organisers Branded and President of Music Matters. “By using Music Matters to announce the release of his new album Jamie is clearly indicating Asia’s importance on the global music map as well as recognising the incredible opportunities that lie in this region.”

“This is an incredibly exciting period in the history of the music industry as new technologies are making music available to us at all times - where, when and how we want it whilst empowering the fans to communicate with and influence their hero’s,” said Donat. “But it all starts with great artists and their content so we are really looking forward to hearing about Jamie Cullum’s influences and experiences and learning from a true master of his craft.”
