His repertoire can be best described as a mix of acoustic-tinged pop, rock and folk. Since then, Blunt has supported MSF by holding meet-and-greet auctions at many of his concerts. James Blunt was born at an army hospital in Tidworth, Wiltshire, England; the first child born to Jane A.F. (née Amos) and Charles Blount. The Blount family has a long history of military service, supposedly dating from the 10th century. He has a keen interest in motorcycles after learning to ride when he was 16. Blunt trained at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Life Guards, a unit of the Household Cavalry, where he rose to the rank of captain. One of his first assignments was to the British Army Training Unit Suffield in Alberta, Canada, where his battalion was posted for six months in 1998 to act as the opposing army in combat training exercises. Blunt refused to carry out this order.
