2015 is already shaping up to be a breakout year for the internationally acclaimed UK singer and songwriter. Less than a month ago, he hit the stage at Late Night with Seth Meyers for his first-ever stateside television performance, and has been profiled by tastemakers such asSpotify, Buzzfeed, Entertainment Weekly, BlackBook, Mashable, The Guardian and Q Magazines as an ?Artist to Watch.? BAY recently received the high honor of the BRIT Critics Choice Award, joining the ranks of past winners Sam Smith, Adele, Florence + the Machine, Jessie J, and more, and has also come in at #2 on BBC Sound of 2015.
BAY hails from the tiny town of Hitchin, but he cut his teeth performing at London?s iconic venues including opening for The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park, opening for two sold out tours with Kodaline, John Newman and Tom Odell. It was at one of?these very performances that a fan filmed his set and shared the video on YouTube. The video quickly caught the?attention of Republic Records who ended up flying BAY to New York and signing him on the spot. Last fall, he was selected to perform at the Burberry?s Prosum Spring/Summer Fashion Show and the iTunes Music Festival. BAY will soon be embarking on 3 sold out UK tours including 2 nights at London?s famous Shepherd?s Bush Empire.
