London: Welsh singer-songwriter Jay James Picton thinks pop star Jessie J is an inspiration to British artistes.

"She`s amazing. I`m very rarely complementary towards certain artistes, but Jessie is certainly an artiste to be proud of with what Britain brings out," a website has quoted Picton as saying.

"Everything that she does is 100 percent who she is. When you see her on stage, she is herself. She`s a real inspiration," he added.

The ‘You`re The Sea’ singer discovered his musical talent after singing in public as a drunken bet with a friend five years ago and is now an up and coming talent.
