Bio

PATRICK JAMES IS AN HONEST AND TRUE SONGSMITH WITH AN INNATE FLAIR FOR SOFT ACOUSTICS, STIRRING HARMONIES AND A HEAVY-HEARTED LYRIC.
<br />
Originally hailing from Port Macquarie, singer/songwriter Patrick James began making a name for himself after relocating to Australia’s largest city, Sydney. Reminiscent of the origin stories of global acts like Passenger, Ed Sheeran and Australian artist Vance Joy, Patrick began his act on the streets, performing as an on-again-off-again busker.
<br />
Patrick caught the ears of Australian group Boy & Bear, who introduced Patrick to tens of thousands of fans as the support act on their biggest national Australian tour to date. With a new brand as Australia’s answer to James Bay, Patrick followed the tour with a breath-taking cover of The Church’s “Under The Milky Way” which was picked up by Australian TV drama Wonderland (and broadcast to millions, in 12 different countries), released two EP’s, sold out headline shows throughout Australia and New Zealand multiple times and supported the likes of Emma Louise, Josh Pyke, The Paper Kites and more.

3:00 - my favourite pop trick. Suck it all in, hold it, let it loose like an elastic band. Another big song from you!

Looks like somebody's got themselves an instant singalong.

Big fan of Patrick and his natural gifts with story and songwriting. I can tell this is one I'll be humming endlessly by the end of the day.
