Who have we here, then?
18-year-old singer-songwriter chappy James TW from just outside of London. 'Iya, James TW. You alright, mate?
Go on then, what's his story?
James started out, as they all do these days, covering tunes on YouTube. After uploading his first (John Mayer's 'Neon') back in 2013 his subscribers shot up *and* he caught the attention of none other than actual Shawn Mendes.
The lad can play loads of instuments, including guitar and piano, and is supporting Shawn on his UK tour dates. YAAAAS.
Wait, he sounds just like...
Sort of like a cross between John Mayer and Ed Sheeran with his own unique vibe. Basically he's the dream.
How's his hair? PRIORITIES.
A strong 8 or 9/10, probably dependent on external factors like the weather and stuff.
Destined for the top or a massive flop?
Well seeing as he's got a fan and friend in the form of Shawn and his debut EP First Impressions is bloody brilliant, we're gonna say this one's got 'BIG POP PROSPECT' written all over him. In non-permanent marker, obviously. Otherwise that'd be a nightmare to scrub off.
Oh, can we just hear him already?
CHRIST ALRIGHT HERE YOU GO:
What d'ya make of James, then? Excited to catch him on the UK leg of Shaun's tour? Tweet us over @sugarscape and check out some Shaun-based shiz below. CHEERS.
James TW's debut EP First Impressions is available to stream and buy (do people still do that) now. Go go go.
