James Shead is a Folk-Rock/Americana artist and Singer/Songwriter based in Cornwall. His sound has been described as a “folk rock hybrid” and as a “gravel voiced singer songwriter not afraid to share his own experiences through his music”. It was this honest song writing that helped him emerge as a festival favourite throughout the UK. His songs are stories, penned from experiences of his own and those around him.

He is releasing his new “City in lights” EP in July 2021. Recorded with John Cornfield, this is a collection of new songs written throughout the summer of 2020 when the country was in lockdown. The songs touch on moments of love, relationships and spending time with the people that truly matter. This EP shows James and his band mature in their song writing and a new direction, but still retaining the signature sound James is known for.

His debut album “A light for the fires” was released in 2015 and was supported with live shows around the country, including several headline shows at the iconic Troubadour in London, as well as intimate live shows at home in Cornwall. The album followed two iTunes-charting EPs which established him as one of the most exciting new singer-songwriters in the South West.
