All James Blunt wanted to do was make an album. For himself. The singer-songwriter-musician says he didn't care whether anyone else heard it. So when his January 2005 debut, Back to Bedlam, rocketed to No. 1 on both sides of the Atlantic, selling more than 2 million copies, he was ecstatic but overwhelmed. Seemingly overnight, the former British army officer was touring the globe playing to packed houses and performing on Saturday Night Live and Oprah. "I drink a lot more now, but I'm surviving," says Blunt, 32. "It's been a mad experience, but we're having a great time."

James Morrison's tastes for soul - the frayed, sweaty kind - sets him apart from all the others. He's one of several British artists (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Duffy, James Blunt) to recently invade the U.S. pop charts. But with his new album - Songs for You, Truths for Me, the follow-up to his acclaimed 2007 debut, Undiscovered - Morrison wanted to redefine what "soul" means to him. "I wanted the songs to be the soul of the music," says the singer-songwriter, who headlines a sold-out show at Washington's 9:30 Club Thursday.
