Tickets on www.bilesuserviss.lv starting from January 22nd, 10am.
James has started songwriting since adolescence, but the first recognition came to him with the hit Impossible, winning the 9th season of British X Factor in 2012. The hit soon reached the top of the British chart and remains the most successful winner’s single in the show’s history.
With so much credit for fame and support, many young artists fail to use it with enough determination. This does not apply to Arthur. The following year James released his debut self-titled album, which, in addition to Impossible, includes such singles as You’re Nobody ’til Somebody Loves You and Recovery.
At the end of 2016 J. Arthur’s second album, ‘Back From The Edge’, is released, which went straight to No.1 in the UK charts and has gone multiplatinum worldwide. It features Say You Won’t Let Go, the artist’s most successful hit to date, recently officially reaching a billion streams on Spotify. So far only 18 records have achieved a billion mark on Spotify in history, and James is one of 10 artists globally to do this including Drake, Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber.
Rewrite The Stars from ‘The Greatest Showman Reimagined’, his duet with Anne-Marie recorder in 2018, has been streamed an amazing 251 million times.
Last year James released his third album ‘YOU’, featuring Naked, Falling Like The Stars, You Deserve Better and Empty Space. The 15-song epic finds the global star at both his boldest and most promiscuous, with hard-hitting lyrics, a restless rifle through musical styles and the searing vocals of someone with plenty to get off their chest. James describes the album material: “I have called the album ‘YOU’ as unlike ‘Back From The Edge’ which was autobiographical, my third album is not about me, it’s about YOU.”
In total Arthur has now sold over 25 million records globally. His has 22 million monthly listeners on Spotify and has had over 1.5 billion views on You Tube.
Given the special aura and picturesque surroundings of the Sigulda Castle Ruins, it is hard to imagine a more suitable place in Latvia to enjoy a performance by such a romantic singer like James Arthur.
