James Sayer is one of those artists that is hard to define. So we won’t. We will simply hum along incessantly to his beyond brilliant new single Sweet Baby Jane while we keep it on repeat in the office today. While we occupy ourselves in a sing along, we will allow James to take you on a trip down musical memory lane.
