Born and bred in Pontypridd, South Wales- just like Tom Jones
James's Career has allowed him to travel all over the world, But there's nothing like the 'Green grass of Home' which I now share with my wife & beautiful family.
Singing was not his first choice of career. A keen sportsman, he pursued a successful golfing career and qualified to play on the European Challenge Tour. James travelled the World rubbing Shoulders with some of the World's best golfers of today's game, Rory Mcilroy to name a few.
He always enjoyed a singsong while being away on the Tour, and to his surprise he was causing a stir and was often asked to perform for the sponsors during the Welcome Dinner.
James quickly recognised that he was able to captivate a large audience and found it be the most exhilarating feeling he had ever experienced. James quickly became known as the singing Golfer.
Within a short time James decided he was going to pursue a singing career & decided to Enter Britain's X Factor. With positive comments from all of the judges throughout the X Factor experience, James made it to the ‘Judges Houses’ stage in St Tropez. He performed in front of his mentor Danni Minogue and Emma Bunton and millions of viewers, before finally saying his ‘Goodbyes’ to the X Factor and ‘Hello’ to a new life.
Regular vocal coaching has truly developed his range and with an ever growing repertoire and upbeat personality, James is completely at home with any size audience.
Each performance reflects his love for the music and lyrics. The voice comes from his heart and soul and is inspired by ‘Swing’, ‘Big Ballads’ and ‘Anthems’.
The delight for James will always be about connecting with a live audience. Leaving them feeling uplifted and wanting to hear more means everything to him.
He regularly performs with his 10piece band & is in becoming in demand all over the World.
James has star quality & that is evident when you see one of his Shows.
James is often compared to 'Michael Buble' & with natural similarities in his look, Voice & Charismatic performance James decided to pay tribute to Michael Buble. Since 2011 his Show has been in demand all over the UK, and is now being recognised on a World stage.
