Following the release of his best-selling single You’re Beautiful in 2005, which moved the hearts of the nation and hit No1 in the UK singles chart, James Blunt enjoyed a meteoric rise to stardom in the UK and beyond.
Originally from Wiltshire, England, James Blunt experienced a military upbringing and attended the University of Bristol on an army scholarship and went onto train at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Once he had climbed the ranks to become captain, James Blunt served as a NATO peacekeeper in Kosovo.
James Blunt then turned his attention to pop music, signing to Linda Perry’s Custard Records label in 2004 and released back to Bedlam in 2004 which featured both You’re Beautiful and the top ten single Goodbye My Lover. Blunt has since released several albums since then including All Lost Souls (2007), Moon Landing (2013), which featured the hit Bonfire Heart, and Once Upon A Mind (2019) which have all been met with international acclaim.
