James Blunt Wiki/Bio
James Blunt, an English singer-songwriter and musician, began his career in the British military as a commissioned officer. He rose to the rank of military captain and saw action in the disputed region of Kosovo. He decided after six years of service to resign from the army in order to concentrate on his musical career. He changed his name to James Blunt from James Hillier Blount. Before signing a recording agreement with ‘Atlantic Records’ and ‘Custard Records,’ he signed with EMI. At first his debut album, ‘Back to Bedlam,’ received little criticism and his live shows received somewhat mixed reviews that revealed a lack of performances. But soon the popularity of his debut album with the masses grew and the single ‘You’re Beautiful’ from the album pushed him into the stars. Another single from the same album called ‘Goodbye My Lover’ was very popular and Blunt was known for his musical talents. The album sold several million copies all over the world and featured the UK Albums Chart and was also very successful in the US. His second album, ‘All the Lost Souls,’ was the top of the chart in more than 20 countries. His other albums, “Some Kind of Trouble” and “Moon Landing,” were also extremely good on the charts. The singer won numerous awards for his debut album in particular and continues performing in live shows and concerts.
The oldest child of Jane and Charles Blount, a British Air Corps colonel and military pilot, is James Blunt.
He was a very active teenager, and he acquired a driver’s licence and trained to ride motorcycles at the age of seventeen. He studied Elstree, Berkshire and London’s prestigious Harrow School.

He recorded a demo when he was still serving in the armed forces. One of his friends asked him to send the demonstration to Todd Interland, the managing director of Elton John. Interland was impressed by the track ‘Goodbye My Lover.’
After 6 years of service he resigned in 2002 from the British Army to fulfil his musical dreams and adopted a stage name that was easier to spell, Blunt. While he was signed with EMI music publishers, he struggled to get a record contract.
