Just on the verge of becoming a household name when it comes to honest, vulnerable folk music, newcomer James Bay hails from the community of Hitchin, UK, and we expect big things from the performer. We've already played his debut EP The Dark Of The Morning dozens of times, mostly because it's just Bay and the guitar and his lyrics that carry his music to new heights. If you're in the middle of a breakup, watch out: listening to his EP that focuses around the last legs of a failing relationship might make you reach for the tissue box.
It's also the last day to enter our contest to win handwritten lyrics to "When We Were On Fire" by James Bay himself — click here to find out how you can win.
