Editors’ Notes James Bay has a voice like a knife. On his debut full-length, the nascent English singer/songwriter fulfills the promise of his early recordings with a collection of lushly arranged rock he recorded in Nashville alongside GRAMMY®-winning producer Jacquire King. The soulful “Let It Go” features a hypnotic guitar melody and stunning vocal performance, while shades of Bruce Springsteen can be heard in the windows-down rush of “Get Out While You Can.” Elsewhere, Bay’s voice cuts through the Fleetwood Mac–like swing of “If You Ever Want To Be In Love” with veteran aplomb.
