hmv's Next Big Thing... #228 JC Stewart
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you rising Irishman JC Stewart...
Who Is He?
JC Stewart is John Callum Stewart, a Northern Irish native whose tender age of 19 hasn't stopped him working with some of the biggest names in music.
As well as a writing credit on Lewis Capaldi's runaway debut album, Stewart has also worked with Rudimental, Nile Rodgers and Benjamin Francis Leftwich, and, supported Kodaline, Snow Patrol and Freya Ridings.

The obvious comparisons are James Bay and Hozier. The production is big and bold, but Stewart's voice is the star of the show, with each big bombastic chorus.
Why Should I Be Excited?

Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. His new track 'Have You Had Enough Wine?' is below for you:
