James Bay background
Born in Hitchin, UK, in 1990, James Bay first dreamed of becoming a musician after hearing Eric Clapton's classic song "Layla". Bay shot to fame with the release of his first album Chaos and the Calm in 2015. With songs like "Let it Go" and "Hold Back the River", the album was the highest-selling debut album of the year and topped the UK, Ireland and Switzerland album charts. The James Bay album also peaked at number 3 in Australia. The James Bay award wins and nominations following this album included a BRIT Award for Best British Male Solo Artist and Grammy nominations for Best New Artist, Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song. Since then, James Bay has been working hard on his new album, managing to fit in tours and concerts in between. James Bay has also performed live on TV on numerous occasions, with performances on late-night TV in the US like the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Add to that headline appearances at Glastonbury, Pinkpop and numerous other festivals, as well as supporting bands like the Rolling Stones and Kodaline and you can see why James Bay tickets tend to sell out in flash.
James Bay new album
Fans of James Bay music will be pleased to hear that his new album retains his signature emotional rawness, yet is more expansive than his first album. As he says himself, 'It's so interesting to see what people are doing with pop right now - and what I feel I can do with my own pop music, it's exciting'. It certainly is, and, if the new James Bay songs are anything to go by, the new album Electric Light will be a worthy follow up to Chaos and the Calm. Buy James Bay tickets and see Bay performing tracks from his new album live at one of his shows.
