James Bay

James Bay - CMJ Showcase - 2013

by WFUV Staff

Driving all night from Minneapolis to New York for his set at FUV Live at CMJ, the 22-year-old James Bay played a solo, mostly acoustic, set of seven songs, including a few found on his recent EP, The Dark of the Morning. Shifting between hushed confessions and keening declarations on songs like "Let It Go" and "Need the Sun To Break," Bay, reminiscent of a young Johnny Depp and sporting a wide-brimmed hat, was charming and chatty.

The FUV Live at CMJ 2013 showcase last night was everything that we had hoped for -- and more. Thanks to all you who came down to Rockwood Music Hall or joined us online and on the radio to hear one of the first official showcases of this week's CMJ Music Marathon. Missed the broadcast? It will be in the FUV Vault shortly. (We have to sleep sometime.)
