Born in 1996 in a small town in Derby, James drove his parents mad with singing and drumming on pots and pans. Being born into a highly musical family and hearing them sing and play, created a passion for music inside a very young James. Church was also an effective training ground, contributing much to his skills, confidence and personality.
A committed Jesus-junkie, he is a part of worship collective ‘A New Thing’. James is also the founder of PRESENCE; a night aimed at young adults and dedicated to worship and the word. New to the session singer game, James is a full-time session singer, and has lent his vocals to artists such as Stormzy, Sway & Claire Richards and platforms such as X Factor & BRIT Awards.
2018 saw James finish second place in the brand new BBC show ‘All Together Now’. Expanding his reach and pushing him to do more, 22 year old James is ready to step out as a worship leader and urban christian artist.
