James Bay is a singular modern talent; an old head on young shoulders, a damn good guitar player and an even better songwriter. He marched his father off to a local guitar shop to spruce up the instrument. The hobby swiftly turned into an obsession, with the neighbors constantly asking him to turn down his amp. At the age of 18, James Bay moved out of Hitchin to study guitar in the seaside city of Brighton.
The road to success might be paved with failure, but try telling that to James Bay. In , he enjoyed an almost frictionless ascent to stardom after being discovered at an open mic night in London and signing a record deal off the back of a YouTube video. Blessed with a bluesy voice and chiselled good looks softened by an omnipresent fedora he was thrust into the spotlight by the Brits Critics' Choice award and quickly racked up millions of sales for his folksy, romantic singles Let It Go and Hold Back The River. Debut album Chaos And The Calm entered the charts at number one and earned the Hitchin-born singer Grammy nominations for best new artist, best rock album and best rock song. The "next thing" was a change of direction. The transformation was physical as well as musical. The singer chopped off his long locks and stored the hat in its box.
