James Smith – ‘Hailey’

Following a string of releases and his debut album ‘Little Love’ last year, singer-songwriter James Smith has established himself as a rising musician, and as he returns with the first new track of the year, ’Hailey’, it only gets better for him.

Emotive and delicate, the track is the story of someone scared to show emotion or open up, fearing that they will get hurt. Lyrically simple, the track is packed full of meaning and realness, as it explores the life of someone who tries to keep their heart intact by making sure never to let anyone into it.

Having achieved critical acclaim, with a successful EP and sold-out debut show in London’s Borderline in March, at just 19, James is definitely one to watch in 2019.
