James has been a passionate advocate of all things musical since an early age. From writing his first song at the age of 13, he's honed his songwriting and piano playing talents through years of practice and gigging, and now boasts an impressive repertoire of both covers, and own material.

James has worked with some of the finest musicians the music industry has to offer, including Chris Difford (Squeeze), Charlie Pinder (Chairman of Sony ATV), Iain Archer (Producer of Snow Patrol), Martin Cooper (Session guitarist at Abbey Road), Guthrie Govan (Multiple accolades), Andy Maclure (Sleeper), Ian Sillett (Atlantic Pictures), Martin Wright (Drummer for Ronnie Wood), Steve Hillier (Record Producer - Keane), Jon Stewart (Sleeper), Dan Swift (Producer Aqualung/Snow Patrol),
Steve Brown/John Ellis (Corinne Bailey Rae) to name a few!
