James Blunt

I’ve been thinking that there are a lot of male singers whom sings pop kinda rock music. Right now, there are four guys that I’m going to make a comparison, lol… this is the first one.

#1 James Blunt.

James Blunt (born James Hillier Blount, February 22, 1974) is an English singer-songwriter whose debut album, Back to Bedlam, and single releases — especially the number one hit “You’re Beautiful” — brought him to fame in 2005. His style is a mix of pop, rock and folk. Along with vocals, James Blunt performs a variety of instruments, including piano and guitar. He is signed to Linda Perry’s independent American label Custard Records. Blunt won two BRIT Awards and two Ivor Novello Awards, and was nominated for five Grammy Awards in 2006. Blunt subsequently released his second album, All The Lost Souls, in 2007; this album was certified gold within its first week of release. The first single from his second album, “1973”, was Blunt’s first Global Number 1 in October 2007, beating “You’re Beautiful” which peaked at Number 2 in the United World Chart.

Prior to embarking on a career in music, Blunt was an officer in the Life Guards, a reconnaissance regiment of the British Army, and served under NATO in Kosovo during the conflict in 1999. While posted to Kosovo, Blunt was introduced to the work of Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) (Doctors Without Borders), a humanitarian aid group best known for its emergency medical care in conflict-torn regions. Since then, Blunt has supported MSF by holding meet-and-greet auctions at many of his concerts.

Blunt’s primary residence is now on the Spanish island of Ibiza, where he wrote many of the songs on his second album.

His three album:

  • 2004: Back to Bedlam
  • 2006: Chasing Time: The Bedlam Sessions (DVD/CD)
  • 2007: All the Lost Souls

but somehow I only know one song of his, “You’re Beautiful”. I guess I’m not much of a fan of him, lol. Anyway, you could visit his official website here. It offers a lot of stuff, such as pictures and updated schedule of his performance.
