Jack Marriott, also known as Jay-D, released ‘Lost My Way’ in September.

The track, which tells of his struggles with anxiety and self-doubt, also caught the attention of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and BBC Scotland.

Twenty-nine-year-old Jack said: “I wanted to make something so that when you feel at your lowest you can put it on and vibe to it as it tells your story.
