To begin with there was the comparisons to David Gray and Damien Rice because they were singer-songwriters. But what's funny is that if you listen to those two they don't sound anything like each other. It's so weird I should be compared to those two, but people need some association. But I'm really glad I've been given a voice by my parents that sounds different. I'm very lucky for that.James Blunt
