"A true exponent of the modern British singer/songwriter - a real gem"
"Fascinating one man band James Hollingsworth comes to Midsomer Norton's Wunderbar tonight. James conjures some wonderful soundscapes with guitar effects and loops to create colour and build the suspense."
“James Hollingsworth is no stranger to Bristol audiences and we have come to expect strongly crafted, beautifully sung songs and stunning guitar work.”
“he has proven himself one of the most intriguing on the current Bristol scene”
“Yet another change of style next with James a solo singer/guitarist full of charisma and star quality singing his folky/rock numbers in for me the manner of Cat Stevens who I am sure would have been proud to have written some of the material on display. Really enjoyed the up-tempo Way Down South and the very atmospheric Still Lights Up the Rain complete with the story behind the song, both from his 2007 CD Coming Home to Stay. James combined rich vocals, excellent guitar and great humour between numbers, he played a strong set set finishing with 2 real gems Faster Than Light and the epic Mothership.”
“one of the best song writers in the country”
“It would appear that every single one of James Hollingsworth’s songs shares the same certain something that makes it undeniably his own.”
“A unique complex guitar style akin to Andalusian guitar and modern rock, plus plenty of material! A popular visit, James' original tunes never fail to impress.”
“The only comparison I can readily make, is to the voice of Tim Buckley, and this is something I do not suggest glibly.”
