(AUS) Having delighted East Coast fans back in February with his very first visit to Australia, Frontier Touring has announced that acclaimed Brighton UK singer and songwriter James Bay will return to Sydney this winter, for a special one-off performance at the Metro Theatre on Wednesday 12 August with special guests Winterbourne.
Bay’s latest platinum hit single ‘Let It Go’ (out now through Universal Music Australia) is currently all over airwaves, reaching #8 on the ARIA Singles Chart. It’s lifted from Chaos and the Calm, Bay’s acclaimed debut album, which was recorded at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits). Reaching #3 on the ARIA Albums Chart, it’s the very first longplayer for an artist whose poignant, effortless connection with fans is a true testament to his talent.
One of this year’s biggest break-out stars, Bay’s stunning vocals and clever, subtle instrumentation has seen him go from being a mainstay on Brighton’s open mic scene to supporting The Rolling Stones, Kodaline, John Newman and Tom Odell. A nominee for the BBC’s Sound Of 2015, Bay took out the Brits’ 2015 Critics Choice Award, the 24-year-old wowing fans at festival sets and headline shows in the UK.
Joining James on stage in Sydney is Central Coast folk troubadours Winterbourne – James Draper and Jordan Brady. The talented pair first met in high school, captivating audiences up and down the East Coast as they hit the road busking… including winning over thousands with their captivating originals every Saturday morning at Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall. 2014’s debut EP All But The Sun (out now through winterbournemusic.com) debuted at #9 on the iTunes Album Chart, thanks to gems like single ‘Cold’ and gigs alongside Patrick James and Little May.
This will be one very special intimate show – don’t miss this one off opportunity to witness James Bay perform in Sydney this August!
