Multi-talented singer, musician, songwriter and producer James Hersey hails from Vienna, Austria. Borrowing freely from all genres, Hersey's sound is tied together by an innate talent for catchy melodies, straightforward lyrics, and an unforgettable voice.
Now based in Berlin and signed to Glassnote Records, Hersey’s debut EP Pages, co-produced by James alongside Ed Sheeran collaborator Will Hicks, is set to drop this May. Leading with his first single ‘Miss You’ -currently being played on HITS 1 / Sirius XM - he's amassed over 70million streams alone, and debuted on the Spotify Global Charts in 10 countries. Needless to say, Hersey is off to an extremely strong start.
Despite ‘Miss You’ forming Hersey’s debut single, his voice and lyrics are one many listeners may already be familiar with from ‘Coming Over’. This was an originally penned track Hersey wrote in 2014 as an ode to delayed desires. It caught the attention of the dance arena when it was remixed by Filous, and later reworked by Kygo & Dillon Francis, ultimately catapulting it to over 125 million streams combined.
Now with over 275 million collective streams to date, Hersey is set to support Francis and the Lights in the UK and will head straight to Austin for his debut at SXSW where he’ll be playing coveted slots with YouTube, Bud Light, Universal, Neon Gold and more."
