I was going to post a “Currently” blog but decided to dedicate an entire post to my current music obsession, James Bay.
The 24 year old Brit released his debut album The Chaos and the Calm in March of this year and has received incredible reviews, nabbing the 2015 Critics Choice award at the BRITS.
I’m a sucker for a singer-songwriter, and Bay’s rock/folk vibe hooked me with his single “Hold Back the River.” The album is stacked with great tunes like “Scars”, “Move Together”, and “If You Ever Want to Be In Love.”
I’m stoked for August 1st, when Bay will be in Toronto with George Ezra at Sherbourne Common. The Manpanion was kind enough to score us tickets as an early birthday present. It’ll be exciting to see James Bay in a smaller venue before he blows up (which he will).
I could rave about Bay’s talent for hours but want y’all to have a listen for yourself!
Put him in rotation on your iTunes. You’ll be happy you did!
