---'Sawmill' EP out now on CD and digital download - http://jamesbandenburg.bandcamp.com---
Badlands ballads of fear and redemption. High and lonesome hollers and on-the-One grooves.
James Bandenburg is a Brighton-based future-old-time/kraut-country singer-songwriter, singing mountain ballads from the Deep South of England, tales set everywhere from the Yorkshire Dales to Icelandic waterfalls. He accompanies himself on guitar, banjo and electronics. He is influenced by both British and American traditional song, the Gothic Americana of Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and Mark Lanegan and the musical wanderlust of Beck and Julian Cope.
James moved to Brighton in 2009 and has performed with many other outfits since then, becoming a regular figure on the live circuit. He currently also plays bass in The Delta Bell and guitar in Vygotsky Circle.
