“Carol King’s Tapestry is one of my biggest influences as a songwriter,” Bay states. “The whole album is a masterclass in great, timeless songwriting. ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow’ has always had a particularly strong effect on me. From the famous Shirelles rendition to a favourite and more recent Amy Winehouse version, to Carole King’s own great recording; the earnest, intimate lyrics and beautiful melody never fails to move and inspire me.”
Comments with Bay between stops on his current European tour with Ed Sheeran, Forbes stated, “Landing on the scene with his massively successful single ‘Hold Back the River’ in 2014 and following that up with his debut studio album, Chaos and the Calm (2015), the English artist has proved his musical dexterity with a second album, Electric Light (2018), a recently released EP, Oh My Messy Mind, and a slew of live performances that have entered the canon of to-be-remembered musical moments.”
