JB (not Bieber)

Look up "Let it Go" by James Bay. Feel your heart be pulled and ripped apart. Breathe. Repeat. This is my reaction every time I dare myself to hear that heart wrenching song. He's a singer-songwriter from the UK (because of course he is) and has a raw sound with a gravely voice to it. It works. His lyrics are so real I can't help but react passionately; I close my eyes and focus on the story of the song. He's that kind of artist.

If you like acoustic, raw, the good grimy, and indie, he's for you. Watch out for him in 2015.
