Leo James

Leo James began playing guitar and writing songs in his late teens, and set about forging himself in to an accomplished singer-songwriter and musician.
Drawing influence from past and present folk, blues and country musicians from both sides of the Atlantic. Leo has followed his passion for acoustic roots music, lap steel, ragtime, Bluegrass and folk guitar, and has received tutelage from notable players such as Phillip Henry, Woody Mann, Kit Hawes and Indian slide guitar maestro Debashish Bhattacharya.
Leo’s music has been described as soulful mix of no nonsense honest song writing, warm husky vocals, intricate finger style and shimmering lap steel guitar work.
Leo has spent many years performing live throughout the UK’s festival, pub and folk club scenes, both as part of ensembles and as a solo performer, and is just as at home playing to large crowds on the big stage, as he is playing in the corner of a small crowded pub.
