James Gillespie

(UK (Scotland))


English born, Scottish raised singer songwriter James Gillespie emerges as one of the most quietly explosive artists in recent memory. Evoking the kinds of sounds that earned artists like James Blake and Hozier instant kudos, the artist making music between the spaces has stolen the attention of his ever-increasing audience of fans through composing heartfelt stories about missing home and missing loves left behind. Having released just 2 EPs, James has amassed an impressive 40 million streams across his catalogue. James has also been tipped by Shortlist Magazine as their #1 ‘one to watch’ 2019, a sentiment echoed by Elton John; “James is my tip. Look out for him next year.” (Beats 1)
