A Piano and Keyboard player since the age of 7, and now based in contemporary R&B, Funk and Soul, he is inspired by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Prince. James has spent the last year and a half releasing music and steadily growing his fan base. The music video for ‘Eyes For You’ has amassed over 30,000 views online, whilst all of James’ four singles so far have had strong praise from BBC Introducing in both ‘Three Counties’ and ‘East Midlands’. James’ debut album will be released on the 1st of September 2017, with the final single ‘Nowhere To Hide’, a stripped back Piano and Vocal ballad, preceding it on the 11th of August.
