Simon James has been playing music since the age of 6 when his father took an old Epiphone Riviera guitar in exchange for some work… his first gig was at the age of 14 and by 18 was playing in blues and rock bands around Yorkshire. Over the last 20 years he has been signed to a US label, toured across the UK and Ireland, performed at York Racecourse for 20,000 people supporting the Prodigy and written music for many acts. More recently he has found his love for country music and great songwriting has started him on a new career, in less than a year he has performed alongside the majority of established UK acts and now is preparing to play pretty much all the UK country festivals. Simon’s passion is songwriting and performing live, the fantastic UK country scene has been an incredible platform for him to fulfill these.
