James Arthur - An alternative acoustic singer/songwriter from the U.K. Won the UK X Factor 2012.
The last few years have been remarkable for James. He was recently awarded a disc for reaching a billion streams on Spotify with his No.1 global hit, Say You Won't Let Go. Only 18 records have achieved a billion streams on Spotify in history and James Arthur is one of 10 artists globally to do this, joinging the likes of Drake, Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber.
In total James has now sold over 25 million records globally. His recent duet with Anne-Marie, Rewrite The Stars, from The Greatest Showman Reimagined has been streamed an amazing 251 million times, whilst his 2018 song Empty Space has already hit over 100 million streams.
James has 22 million monthly listeners on Spotify and has had over 1.5 billion views on YouTube. His 2016 album "Back From The Edge" went straight to No.1 in the UK charts and has gone multiplatinum worldwide.
James' third album, YOU, features the hit singles Naked, Falling Like The Stars and Empty Space, alongside new songs with features from Travis Barker from Blink 182 and Adam Lazzara from Taking Back Sunday. The 15 song epic finds the global star at both his boldest and most promiscuous, with hard-hitting lyrics, a restless rifle through musical styles and the searing vocals of someone with plenty to get off their chest.
