Today we have a lovely acoustic guitar-playing fellow who goes by the name of James Robinson. He's very talented & reminds me very much of Jamie Scott who is one of my favorite singer-songwriters of all time.
I had the pleasure of speaking with James, and managed to get him to answer some questions so that you readers can get to know him a little bit better! So, here we go!
Hey James, could you tell us a bit about who you are and what you do?
I am a singer/writer from Devon, living in Brighton and I sing and write songs.
How would you describe your sound?
An eclectic mix of genres edging towards the pop-side of things.
Who would you compare yourself to in the industry right now?
Ben Howard crossed with Bruno Mars
So, what can people expect if they come down to one of your shows?
To have a f**king fun night
What's your favorite song you have written?
Probably the most recent one. It's called 'The Money Song' - It's been going down well at gigs and has a bit of tongue in cheek about it.
And finally where can your fans (or new fans) find you?
I'd like to thank James for taking the time to answer these questions!
The singer-songwriter genre has seen a sudden surge in popularity in the past few years, whether it's small success stories such as the fellow James compared himself to, Ben Howard, or massive Worldwide success stories such as Ed Sheeran. There's definitely a market out there for James, and I hope he makes it. Cause he's got some serious talent!
You can catch James performing live in London at The Roof Gardens on Friday 22nd February. You can find out more info at www.liveandlovemusic.com !
