James Bay

0 Shouts   -   7,793,436 Scrobbles


James Bay (born 4 September 1990) is an artist who possesses that untarnished strain of talent that many newcomers lose as they develop over time. His raw expressions and graveled voice work in a magical unison that captivates audiences and strips pop melodies back to a skeletal efficiency. Hailing from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, James is a young singer-songwriter who has already gained a great reputation thanks to stints at Communion's monthly night at Notting Hill Arts Club in London and a hugely successful run of support slots with Tom Odell, John Newman and Kodaline. He issued his debut EP, The Dark of the Morning, in 2013, with a second extended player, Let It Go, and a third extended player, Hold Back the River, arriving the following year.

    Tried to keep you close to me
    But life got inbetween
    Tried to square not being there
    But think that I should have been
    Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
    Hold Back the River  -  1,971,026 plays
    From walking home and talking loads
    To seeing shows in evening clothes with you
    From nervous touch and getting drunk
    To staying up and waking up with you
    Now we're slipping near the edge
    Let It Go  -  1,670,793 plays
    I'm half way gone
    Sleepless I'm battle worn
    And you're all I want
    So bring me the dawn
    I need the sun to break, you've woken up my heart
    Need the Sun to Break  -  427,400 plays
    Saw you today after so much time
    It felt just like it used to be
    Talking for hours about a different life
    Surrounded us in memories
    We were close, never close enough
    If You Ever Want to Be in Love  -  465,872 plays
    Drifting apart, getting hard to hold you
    Days getting dark and the nights are growing cold
    Are we burning out?
    Swept out of sight, rolling up on an ocean
    There's cut on the rose, and you're lost in the moment
