Leicester-born singer-songwriter James Cherry has charted a steady rise with his patented brand of "aggressive soul", mixing the vulnerable aspects of everyday life with a richly-textured and powerful vocal. It's the same story with his latest single, "Why Don't You Listen", as a record so soulfully transcendent carries an easily relatable back-story. Crafted out of a situation in which a botched meeting with his girlfriend prompted a confrontation, this is the gravel-toned crooner fashioning a common life event straight into his art. Press play on the song right after the jump.
