Sounds of 2015 - #4 - James Bay

The boy from Hitchin has come a long way in what seems to be a short space of time, but what a lot of people don't know is that he's been at it for a while now. 2014 has seen him perform all over the UK, US network chat-shows, such as Seth Meyers, and he's already won an award, a prestigious one at that too. He picked up the Critics Choice Brit Award for 2014 following in the footsteps of Ellie Goulding, La Roux and recently Tom Odell.

All of the previous winners have gone to get loads of acclaim from fans and and critics alike. With his d├ębut album out in the first half of the year the year he's going to be riding high off that for a while, so expect to see him on Jools Holland's show in the new year and high up the festival bills. Scroll on down below to check him out covering Alt-J and Haim! With smooth vocals and the storm he's causing give him a like and a follow, some big things are hiding under his hat!
