James TW - When You Love Someone
James Taylor Watts is 18 years-old and comes from Warwickshire. His introduction came when a member of his dad’s wedding band fell ill, so at the age of 10 he stepped in to help out as the drummer. He progressed into a pub singer by the time he was 15 and now plays drums, piano and guitar. He began to get noticed by posting songs on You Tube and was spotted by Shawn Mendes. Soon after James was signed by Shawn’s record label before releasing ‘When You Love Someone’ from his ‘First Impressions’ EP. It was written after James began teaching an schoolboy to play the drums. His parents were getting divorced at the time, but the boy was unaware. Earlier this year James played support to Shawn Mendes on his European and US tour. His debut album will follow in 2017 for which he’s written over 100 songs.
