Critics compare James to such distinguished musicians as Tom Waits, Violent Femmes, Tim Buckley and Damien Rice, to name but a few. James learnt his craft the old-fashioned way, performing live wherever possible, every night of the week.
His unique sound springs from his diverse musical influences and experience. He has been on the road non-stop for the past few years, playing in bars, clubs, theatres and festivals throughout Europe, the United States and the Far East, giving “hypnotic performances” (International Jazz Festivals Review) and collecting glowing reviews. James' new album Superstition (released by the Tranzistor label) was recorded at Bang Studios in Prague, produced by Viliam Beres, and mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Ken Rich at Grand Street Recording Studio in New York.
James has appeared on Austrian, Belgian, Czech, Dutch, German, Polish, Slovak radio and television. Between his numerous live appearances, James has taken time out to write and perform music scores for more than 16 Czech, Slovak, US, British and Polish films.
