Drawing from a broad palette of pop, folk, soul, country and blues influences, and interweaving his solo compositions with Love and Money favourites, James twins darkly literate, melodically lush songcraft with his richly potent vocals and virtuoso guitar work, leavening his performances with dashes of wickedly acerbic humour.
Classics from the eighties through the oughties will be performed with customary wit, style and dexterity. Music to fill the heart and stir the soul.
One of Scotland’s most gifted songwriters... and what a marvellous singer he is too, spanning darkly burnished baritone depths and searing soulful intensity. Scotsman
