James Bay"At last, Ed Sheeran and Jake Bugg have some real competition" wrote John Aizlewood in the Evening Standard, reviewing James Bay's live show at London's Scala in late December last year. The Hitchin-based singer-songwriter who has an incredible 8m views on YouTube the 24-year-old has gained prominence since being announced as the 2015 Brits Critics Choice and now plays Shepherds Bush Empire ahead of his big Somerset House concert in July. Known for his catchy, guitar-based ballads, Bay performs his indie-pop tunes Let It Go, stadium anthem Hold Back the River and Sparks - "not the only nod to Michael Jackson's Billie Jean" (Standard).

 

About Shepherd's Bush Empire

The Empire is, admittedly, not the most comfortable of venues - the standing area is sunk so far beneath the main stage that anyone under six foot risks painful neck injuries if they want to watch from close-up. Still, the faded grandeur of this former BBC recording theatre, a fantastic acoustic, and the cheerful international population of Shepherd's Bush all add up to a fun live experience, and many musicians cite this as their favourite London venue to perform in.
