Hey! I'm James, a musician and singer-songwriter and producer! I love everything about music: listening to it, singing it, writing it, producing it  and performing it! I've been singing for as long as I can remember and I wrote my first song "Oh Baby" when I was 6 years old!  If you want a bit of a laugh and to learn some cool dance moves you can watch the video here! I began taking piano lessons around age 7 but when I was 11, I began to practise improvising and then, inspired by listening to Adam Levine and Maroon 5, I started writing songs. I listen to lots of other artists too -Charlie Puth, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Sia, Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Drake and loads more... but I have my own unique style. When the inspiration to write a song comes, I sit at the piano, a melody forms and then the lyrics flow! I write a lot about love and heartbreak but I've never been in love...yet! I'm so excited that two of my songs, "You're Gone" and "By Your Side" got through to the semifinals of the UK Songwriting Contest 2016 - and another of my songs "Red Dress" (which I'm releasing soon on my EP) is being considered for the 2017 finals!! My dream is to keep writing and singing and for people to get to know and enjoy my music! One day I'd love to do a world tour...
