James Bay, oh James Bay — this song is on fire! I saw the young singer-songwriter from Hitchen at the Mercury Lounge in New York City on June 5, and his sound was a planet of sonic primness weighing on your body. Bay’s powerful yet soothing voice offered a wonderful experience. He’s not a slouch on the guitar either; his long black hair resembles John Mayer’s, and he can pick it and sing with best of the guitar-singers.
Stream James Bay’s latest single from his debut acoustic EP, The Dark of the Morning, to be released on July 22, and keep your ear to the ground for more reviews of the promising young musician.
