CenterStage — James Bay
It’s uncommon for a musician to have a voice that can swiftly change from silky smooth to raw gravelly blues. James Bay, however, is one of the few that have perfected it, and with only one EP under his belt to show for it. Drawing from influences like Carole King, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills, & Nash, the 22-year old is another worthy contender to the world of acoustic bluesy folk.
His debut EP The Dark of the Morning, released earlier this summer through UMG and all in all it’s a very easy set to get lost in, with a sound that is highly reminiscent of Noah Gundersen and Ray LaMontage. (Keeping in mind that James’ voice goes down a hell of a lot smoother than Ray’s.) The EP is available to purchase on iTunes for £2, or on NoiseTrade for however much you want to pay— with the full percentage going to WaterAid UK.
