This is the last week of our beautiful countdown and for as sad as I am about the end being so close,
I'm also unbelievably excited to share the last few performances with us.
We love all the acts featured on this countdown, but this last week belongs to the supporters that have been there since 2012.
house in the sand wouldn't be the same without their support, so let's celebrate them just as much as we celebrate the birthday!
What is #HITSBC16?
HITSBC16 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2016.
Throughout the entire month of February, we will be celebrating this website's fourth birthday.
One artist/band a day is going to wish us a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for this sweet occasion.
Who is performing today?
He is a singer/songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland.
James is one half of house in the sand's favourite duo, Martin and James.
With the band being on a break, both individuals are now making music on their own.
James' influences vary from intensity of Bruce Springsteen, to Simon and Garfunkel's handcrafted songs, to the Spice Girls and their catchy pop vibes.
His own sound blends Rock, Pop and Soul - in the charming acoustic manner, as well as with big compositions.
His upcoming EP "Flying Solo" will be showcasing his strong and expressive voice and his writing skills. Make sure to keep an eye and an ear on James.
What is special about this video?
It's James' first acoustic video online as a solo act.
I am very convinced that his vocal performance is going to blow most of you away.
It's beautiful, it's intense and it makes it obvious why HITS supports this gentleman so much.
Please give it up for James Edan as he performs his new song "I'll Come To You".
Where can we find James Edan online?
Website | Facebook | YouTube
Who do we need to thank?
James, the wonderful, James!
There isn't one idea of mine involving him that he doesn't support. I have experienced so many different sides of this industry and I owe a lot to James. He once even sat down with me to help me with my studies! Can you believe it?
Thanks for all of this, James! See you soon!
house in the sand adores and supports both, James and Martin, equally and we are beyond excited to be working with both artists.
