James – London singer guitarist
James is a highly talented singer guitarist for hire who never fails to entertain. Having spent many years honing his craft by performing and writing his own material, he has developed the ability to make songs his own. His repertoire is very, very extensive and when he plays guitar and sings he adds his own take on the songs he plays.
In the last couple of years James has performed extensively across London both as a solo singer guitarist and as part of a number of different duos. He was played guitar at weddings, private parties and in bars and restaurants across town. Importantly due to his wide repertoire of songs he is able to play and sing almost on demand and in particular has developed an ability to read the crowd and change his set to fit the mood in the room. This means that when you hire a singer guitarist as experienced as James you are guaranteed a good vibe is created whatever the event. With charm and wit James encourages great audience interaction, ensuring laughter and fun is had by all. From gentle acoustic melodies to full throttle funk and folk rock, James has got the lot.
Highly professional and always appropriately dressed for the occasion James will arrive with plenty of time to set up his equipment to ensure he starts his performance on time.
Available for hire for events as a main act or, as a background music performer, James appears regularly for Yes Entertainment at Hilton Park Lane’s Podium restaurant as part of our Acoustic Afternoons series.
A reliable, high quality performer. Highly recommended.
