Bio

Patrick James is a singer/songwriter from Port Macquarie who is now based in Sydney. He has released two EP's:

All About To Change EP (2013)
Broken Lines EP (2014)

Patrick earn't his stripes busking when he first arrived in Sydney, and has now toured Australia extensively including his own sold out tour in 2013. Patrick has also supported some incredible artists along the way including Boy & Bear, Pete Murray, Kina Grannis, Josh Pyke, The Paper Kites, Emma Louise and more.

Patrick's latest release "Broken Lines' came off the back of tonnes touring with his live band and playing to much bigger crowds and rooms than he had ever before. Produced by Wayne Connolly (You Am I, Josh Pyke) the new record has a fuller sound whilst maintaining Patrick's signature vocals and harmonies. Think a mix of Ryan Adams and James Taylor and you're somewhere in the ballpark.

Patrick James ’BROKEN LINES' EP is out now in Australia and New Zealand via Create/Control.

Patrick James has a damn warm voice and and a great sense of melody. He's teamed up here with some classy players who bring this song to life.

further progression from Patrick - he's hitting the nail on the head when it comes to sweet, banjo-filled indie folk. nice one
