Take a thumping dance floor beat and throw in a little funk and disco, sprinkle with the brashness of the eighties, and you've got Kristofer James. Well, almost. This is a boy who could sing before he could walk and it definitely shows. His soulful voice soars: intense relentless rhythms blended perfectly with penetrating melodies, like whispers in the wind, ebbing and flowing effortlessly before cascading over the proverbial waterfall to break down the boundaries of pop.
Kris is no stranger to the stage, his whole life has revolved around music. "I was brought up around music," says Kris, "I grew up in a musical family. I was stealing the mic from my mum when I was four, taking the lead in school musicals by the time I was ten, and just after starting high school I was writing my own songs."
After leaving school Kris concentrated on hitting the big time. He was catapulted from the safety of friends and family and was thrown straight in at the deep end - touring the clubs of Liverpool. At only eighteen years old, his talent, determination, and professionalism carried him off to London and on to the States. Having spent time working with several major labels, in bands and as a solo artist in the UK and America, Kris returned to his roots. Armed with friends in high places, Kris began to forge a new sound:
"I worked really hard to get where I was, but it just wasn't what I wanted to do, I wanted to be me again, develop my own sound and reassess my career. That's when I was really born as an artist. It felt right, and fresh and new. I'm really happy with where things are right now, I love what I'm doing and I think that love shows through in my music"
