    If there's one guy who we know will break big in 2014, it's James Bay. He stands at a crossroads between folk, blues, rock, and indie on his entrancing new EP, Let It Go [iTunes link]. The single "If You Ever Want To Be in Love" coasts ahead on his soulful delivery as acoustic guitars lightly brush up against the vocals.

    Meanwhile, "Let It Go" and "If You Ever" instantly transfix due to his vivid lyrics, airtight songwriting, and that voice. Bay doesn't need much to captivate. It's a straightforward and timeless collection of songs eschewing modern bells and whistles in favor of everlasting talent and prose. Bay essentially has got all the trappings of the 21st century's next icon.

    Discover his majesty on Let It Go now.
