Oh, James Bay… or who my friends know as “Bay bae”
A brilliant debut album “Chaos and The Calm.”
I still kick myself for not being in Vancouver, when he came to Vancouver.
First time, with Hozier in October 2014 at the Commodore Ballroom.
Second time, in April 2016, headlining at the Orpheum Theatre.
I love how the whole story unfolds throughout the lyrics
Let the ashes fall, forget about me
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Your lion’s heart will protect you under stormy skies…
These 3 songs are only a sneak peak to “Chaos and The Calm.”
From the first track “Craving’ to the last track “Incomplete,” the album paints hope and heartbreak.
Check out his whole album if you have time, you can thank me later. Definitely won’t disappoint.
