Following the success of his two previous releases, ‘Kerosene’ and ‘Beyond Today’, English born but Scottish-raised singer/songwriter James Gilespie is set to prove himself as one to watch in 2020 with the release of his latest single, ‘Hold Me Down’ and its accompanying music video. Vulnerable and poetic, the track lays bare the gritty quality of James’ vocals.
A release that explores the relatable circumstance of “the fight between the head and the heart”, James has honed his ability to tell the most intimate of stories with effortless ease.
Since bursting onto the scene, the alt-artist has gone from strength to strength. From a string of sold-out London headline shows and notching up an impressive stream of 55 million to working with the best producers around, his authenticity as an artist has continued to set him apart. And the same success is sure to apply to his forthcoming debut album ‘Safe’, which is set for October 18th and a twelve date tour.
James Gilespie is a talent worth loving and supporting – his latest release ‘Hold Me Down’ is the only testament to the fact.
