James Vickery – Only You

At this point in his career, it’s safe to say that James Vickery has well and truly become one of the UK’s most prominent R&B talents.

Melodic new single ‘Only You’ is taken from Vickery’s ‘Sheet Music’ EP (out now), and treats listeners to a sublime slice of dreamy and harmonious R&B.

“For the longest time I had the idea of putting a barbershop quartet into an R&B song. No particular reason, it was just a new take I hadn’t heard before. I took a trip to Toronto to work with some producers I kept tabs on for a while and this original idea turned into ‘Only You’. I took the idea back to London and developed the harmonies to make them fuller and almost chorale like. What came next was one of the most unusual yet beautiful songs I’ve ever made.”

Close to reaching one million monthly listeners on Spotify alone, Vickery looks set to take on his biggest year yet. James will perform in London and the US over the month of May, with dates listed below.
