19 year-old British pop singer/songwriter James TW landed a deal with Island Records after being discovered on YouTube by Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes.
The Warwickshire native began his career as a drummer, filling in with his father's wedding band at the age of ten. By the time he was in his early teens, he'd added guitar and piano to his resume, and he began uploading cover songs to YouTube and playing acoustic gigs in local pubs.
He cites John Mayer and Ed Sheeran as influences, and his soulful delivery falls into a similar pop singer/songwriter style.
We were lucky enough to have him in studio on Wednesday, February 16th, to talk about and celebrate his new single, "Ex".
