Video of the Moment #2158: James TW

Young singer/songwriter James TW (full name James Taylor-Watts) released his debut EP ‘First Impressions’ earlier this year on Island Records. He also showcased at SXSW 2016, where I covered him playing the Liberty Tavern Saturday afternoon after fellow young artist Holly Macve.

Taylor-Watts has a soulful twang in his singing, not wholly unlike the famously hatted James Bay, so it’s not hard to imagine that superstardom could be in the young performer’s near future. Today we have for you his video for ‘Sanctuary’, a track off ‘First Impressions’. Taylor-Watts says of the track, “‘Sanctuary’ was written about when we all get too caught up in everyday life, whether it’s school or work, and forget about the things that matter the most. It’s about making time with the person you love to step away from the busy world.” We can get behind that sentiment completely. Watch the promo for ‘Sanctuary’ below.
