Carol King’s Tapestry is one of my biggest influences as a songwriter,” Bay states. “The whole album is a masterclass in great, timeless songwriting. ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow’ has always had a particularly strong effect on me. From the famous Shirelles rendition to a favourite and more recent Amy Winehouse version, to Carole King’s own great recording; the earnest, intimate lyrics and beautiful melody never fails to move and inspire me.”

Bay had massive success in 2014 with single ‘Hold Back the River’ and his debut album, Chaos and the Calm.

Bay has been on an extensive European tour opening for Ed Sheeran since May, which will be wrapping up this month with a couple more shows in both Hannover and Reykjavik. Full tour below:
