James Newman is a multi-platinum selling, Brit Award-winning and Grammy-nominated songwriter.

In 2013 James won a Brit Award for co-writing the British Single of the Year Waiting All Night, performed by Rudimental and Ella Eyre; this became his first UK Number 1.

It wasn’t long before he co-wrote another UK chart-topper, Blame, this time for Calvin Harris and his younger brother John Newman. The song was a massive hit in several countries including the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Mexico.

Yorkshire-born Newman has worked with many famous artists over the years, including Ed Sheeran who recorded the vocals for Lay It All On Me, a certified platinum single in the UK and US. The singer-songwriter has also been nominated for a Grammy twice, co-writing Coping from Toni Braxton’s album Sex & Cigarettes, and Let ‘Em Talk from Kesha’s album Rainbow.

At the beginning of 2020, James recorded his previous Eurovision entry My Last Breath in Scotland while he was staying on a loch with fellow songwriters Ed Drewett, Iain James and Adam Argyle. James released his debut EP The Things We Do in Summer 2020 and ended the year with another new collaboration with Armin Van Buuren, Slow Lane.

James has two pet house rabbits: Brick and Wilma.

Lyrics of Embers

Sometimes I know My fire burns low But as long as you’re with me I’ll never get cold Day and night Through darkness and light I’ll never worry when you’re by my side Oh Feelings change And seasons fade, but Nothing will burn us out Nothing can stop us now Out of the embers You and I are gonna light up the room (yeah you and I, gonna light up the room) Out of the embers There’s a fire burning for you (yeah there’s a fire, burning for you) I feel it heating up There’s still a chance for us Down here in the ashes yeah there’s something glowing Out of the embers You and I are gonna light up the room (yeah you and I, gonna light) Light up the Room You and me Forever we’re free We’re cool under pressure And that’s all we need So take my hand And forget the past We’re in this together there’s no looking back Oh Feelings change And seasons fade, but Nothing will burn us out Nothing can stop us now Out of the embers You and I are gonna light up the room (yeah you and I, gonna light up the room) Out of the embers There’s a fire burning for you (yeah there’s a fire, burning for you) I feel it heating up There’s still a chance for us Down here in the ashes yeah there’s something glowing Out of the embers You and I are gonna light up the room (yeah you and I, gonna light) Light up the Room Out of the embers You and I are gonna light up the room (yeah you and I, gonna light up the room) Out of the embers You and I are gonna light up the room (yeah you and I, gonna light up the room) Light up the Room
