Multi-talented singer, musician, songwriter and producer James Hersey first came to our attention by way of with his elegantly sonic, electronic pop gem “Miss You”. A soft-focused, stylized track which has since racked up a phenomenal 76 million streams and counting. This chilled and tempered song has acted to highlight James deep understanding and passion for lyrics and melody. When I wrote about “Miss You” last year, I referred to it as being a gentle and mellifluously flowing debut and of its aesthetically alluring video as being; excellent, effective at cleverly tying in the reflective theme of the song.
The British Summer Time Festival gave us the opportunity to finally get to chat to James and among the topics we talked about were singles “Miss You”, “Everyone’s Talking”, the balance of adding electronic components to his music and life on the road as an emerging artist.
