Another British Singer Songwriter seems poised to be the next big thing on the radio friendly Pop Rock scene. To the casual listener, James Bay sounds like the love child of Ed Sheeran and Gavin DeGraw, both musically and vocally. The 24 year old Brit recently toured with Hozier and received the 2015 Brit Awards Critics Choice.
Bay is not reinventing the wheel by any means, but his songs come across as honest and heartfelt, not to mention they are catchy as hell. If these songs were released by Ed Sheerin instead of Bay, you might already be familiar with 3-5 songs. The album is called “Chaos and The Calm” and is definitely worth a listen if you are in to a pop friendly singer songwriter. If you don’t believe us take a listen for yourself.
