As much as I love James Bay, I have to point out that he wrote a song with pretty much the exact melody as another song by a lesser-known artist, Matthew Perryman Jones.
Listen to the songs back to back:
Matthew Perryman Jones – Meghan’s Song
James Bay – Hold Back The River
I obviously have no idea if this was intentional or not. This could just be another case of stealing like an artist, recycling of art.

Here are some songs I’ve really been into. Some are brand new (like James Bay and Della Mae) and the others not so much, but all of them are worth a listen.
James Bay – Let It Go
Jamie Cullum – Pure Imagination
Amos Lee – Bottom Of The Barrel
Della Mae – Long Shadow
