James started out writing and playing guitar in bands. While playing he developed his love of production, mixing and songwriting, landing a residency at the legendary Olympic Studios which saw the likes of artists such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Cure and many more.
During this time, James found and developed bands and artists and became instrumental in the signing of numerous acts to major labels. With this, he grew a reputation for being able to work with musicians to find their unique sound which led to being offered an A&R role at RCA records and signing a worldwide publishing deal with Imagem Publishing (Mark Ronson, Cathy Dennis).
Currently working with both new and established acts, James’ music has clocked up nearly 100 million streams as well as numerous charts successes.
James now works out of his own studio in Maida Vale, London.
