Scottish newcomer James Gillespie emerges as one of the most quietly explosive artists in recent memory.
Evoking the kinds of sounds that earned artists like James Blake and Hozier instant kudos, the artist making music between spaces has stolen the attention of an ever-increasing audience of fans through composing heartfelt stories about missing home and missing loves left behind; the new seductions of the city and the darkness within it. The innate feeling, gravel-pounded vocal and technical ability make up a uniquely engaging artist.
Gillespie released his debut single ‘What You Do’ in early 2017, which received positive reviews from the likes of The Line of Best Fit and Complex. This atmospheric tune was followed up by a cover of dark, acoustic version of P!nk’s 2001 emotive pop-rock hit ‘Don’t Let Me Get Me’, taking a darker acoustic turn.
With exciting things expected from him, James Gillespie is definitely one to watch for 2018.
