solo Artist.. James abberley


The Ocean, Traveling, People, & of cause, Love :-)


Originally from Adelaide, James called the Ningaloo Reef home for the last five years before
embarking on a new journey that will be taking his music around the country to perform at
festivals, breweries, pubs, public spaces, venues and intimate backyard shows. His love of
surfing and the outdoors led him to integrate his newfound passion for the north-west’s
remoteness, barren beauty and bountiful ocean in his hypnotic and talented take on solo blues n’ roots.
James’ lyrics are heartfelt and each song contains a compelling narrative that weave
seamlessly in to his crafted and soaring melodies. James’ vast musical talents shine through his mesmerising performances, described as both energetic and soul soothing at the same time, with a perfect blend of folk/blues/roots delivered upbeat with masterful guitar work, toe tappin’ looping, bass drum stomping and entrancing falsetto break downs. Don’t forget your dancing shoes.
