James' new album Thirteen Moons - released 12 Feb 2021

The complete album went live on Spotify and all major platforms from the small hours of Friday 12 February 2021 - see the album page for CD's, stories and links.

James began making music from an early age, mimicking sounds and singing as well as learning piano and violin, later moving on to guitar, bass guitar and harmonica. His songwriting began tentatively from age 12 or 13, reaching a prodigious output as he entered his 20's and 30's, moving progressively from folkie/acoustic troubadour and deeper into blues, rock and grooves as in time he mastered both new instruments and new music technology.

There has always been a dream-like quality to James' music, whether it be in his lyrics or overtly in his music, reflecting his intuitive openness to the flow of spirit driving the improvisational and spontaneous style inherent in his detailed recordings.

"If you like acoustic music with interesting rhythms and narrative lyrics then this is for you"
