Hailing from the sleepy town of Hitchin, just outside of London, it's clear that James Bay was made for much grander things - his soulful, gravel-toned vocals and expertly crafted ballads have made waves since 2013 and was hotly tipped by the international music media as one of 2015's ones to watch. Well that prophecy certainly came true. He now hits the road in support of his second album, Electric Light, which features recently released singles 'Wild Love' and 'Pink Lemonade'.
Perhaps his best known song is the powerful, up-tempo 'Hold Back The River', a single that's solidified the young troubadour's status as a force to be reckoned with. His debut album, 2015's Chaos and The Calm, aptly describes his song-writing style translating to a live set brimming with raw energy. Outbursts of emotion are underpinned by softer, more intimate moments, marking the fledgling artist as wise beyond his years.
Performance date: 5 April 2018
