"In July, English singer-songwriter James Bay performed on the biggest stage of his career yet: New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. Along with his band, the 24-year-old "Hold Back the River" singer played to 3,500 people in the sold-out room, kicking off his headlining tour in support of his May debut, Chaos and the Calm. Our photographer spent the day with Bay and his band — drummer Gerry Morgan, bassist Thom Peel and keyboardist Jack Duxbury. Together, the quartet geeked out, performed and celebrated an early highlight of the singer's career." - Rolling Stone
