February 20, 2006 – British army turned musician, James Blunt, has been named the Best British Male Solo Artist and Best Pop Act in 2006 BRIT Awards. Won two out of 5 nominations in the biggest annual pop music awards in the United Kingdom, James Blunt whose debut album “Back to Bedlam” was the UK’s best selling album in 2005, also got many excellent review from critics spreading all over the net.

“Without doubt, James’ Back to Bedlam is recommended for pop interest for his mellow heartfelt songs,” says Denny Lee, CEO & Publisher “He is a brilliant talented artist with honest lyrics. It’s so perfect that you have to take your breath away.” he continues. “We do have strong determination to honor James Blunt as AceShowbiz Artist of the Week at the 8th week of 2006.”

Beginning his music career with a performance at the 2003 South By Southwest Music Festival, James Blunt gained Linda Perry’s (songwriter/producer) attention. It didn’t take much time for Linda to quickly offer him a lavish contract under her label, Custard Records. Furthermore in his musical career, James landed a U.S distribution deal with Atlantic Records which brought him to Los Angeles for working on his first album, “Back to Bedlam”.

Aside from the failure prediction addressed to his first album which had to struggle hard to take position in U.K chart for nearly half a year, James optimistically launched a single from the album entitled "You're Beautiful" by late May 2005 with the intention to give “Back to Bedlam” a sufficient boost to score higher in the chart. The result was really great. After the success of "You're Beautiful" in the UK, the song crossed over to mainland Europe, becoming one of the biggest hits of summer 2005 across the continent.

Adding the great score of “You’re So Beautiful”, James Blunt’s name is skyrocketing, included as a runner-up of Billboard Hot 100 Singles for which he has entered for at least 16 straight weeks. Having his world tour which to be conducted around America, New Zealand, Australia, and Japan scheduled to begin in April 2006, James also is ready to highlight the 2006 Summer Nights Concerts Series in England by late June.
