James Blunt

While James Blunt has always been musical, playing both piano and violin from a young age, growing up he had little exposure to the rock/pop world. There was no CD or record player in the house, and it wasn't until he went away to boarding school that he heard the likes of the Beatles, Pink Floyd, the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin. At the age of 14, he picked up a guitar for the first time and started writing songs. It wasn't long before he knew what he wanted to do with his life. Exactly one year after it first appeared on U.K. shelves, Back To Bedlam arrives in the U.S. in October 2005. And, should history repeat itself on these shores, it will be because James Blunt's compelling songs, captivating voice, and charismatic presence are his own best salesmen, and because once again his audience will find him, fan by fan.
