GRAMMY-nominated Platinum-certified UK troubadour JAMES BAY is iHEARTMEDIA’s latest ON THE VERGE artist. BAY joins the ranks of recent ON THE VERGE artists such as LUKAS GRAHAM and ZAYN MALIK, among others.
As part of this initiative, beginning MAY 10th, his music will be prominently featured across iHEARTMEDIA radio stations and online properties throughout the U.S., and on iHEARTRADIO, the all-in-one digital music and live streaming service.
Said Pres. of iHEARTMEDIA National Programming Group TOM POLEMAN: "Artists like JAMES BAY are a rare breed; a special singer song-writer with natural talent, incredible charisma and is also a genuinely good guy. We’re thrilled to have him as our ON THE VERGE artist and look forward to watching him continue to grow as an artist and become a superstar."
BAY recently embarked on a sold- out tour that climaxed on a triumphant COACHELLA debut. His 2015 full-length REPUBLIC RECORDS debut, "Chaos And The Calm" was just certified RIAA gold and has given the world two RIAA platinum-certified hits “Let It Go” and “Hold Back The River.”
This year, he received three GRAMMY nominations and won “Best Male Solo Artist” at The BRITS.
