James emerged in his early teens as a prodigious Alto Sax player and after attending various workshops in the Bristol Area joined Craig Crofton’s Jazz Funk group CC5. Still a teenager he gained a place at the prestigious London Guildhall School of Music and returned to Bristol an even more formidable performer. He has now established himself on the local scene with his own band Porkchop Ft and also performing with such world class musicians as Pee Wee Ellis, Marco Parker and local sax hero Andy Sheppard. James has developed his unique voice through direct influences from funk, soul, jazz, gospel, latin and urban music. He has the ability to communicate to an audience through his saxophone and directly project deep emotion across to the listener in a lyrical style. James is now a core member of Pee Wee Ellis' Still Black Still Proud an African tribute to James Brown which has toured main stages at festivals all over Europe and has involved guest artists including: Fred Wesley, Cheik Lo, Martha High, Angelique Kidjo and Tony Allen to names a few. His playing style also encompasses the influences of the past greats such as Charlie Parker and Cannonball Adderley.
