London based singer/songwriter Paddy James makes eloquent acoustic based pop recounting the mischief and melancholy of everyday life. Born in Solihull, West Midlands in 1989, he began his musical journey learning the drums from the age of 8 after a fleeting attempt at conquering the guitar. It wasn’t until his mid to late teens whilst at school in Dorset that he finally decided to revisit his six stringed nemesis. His encounters studying for a degree at University gifted him with the substance to develop his song writing and performance skills. This coupled with a constant gigging regime and a growing live reputation landed him support slots for the likes of Ed Sheeran and the Hoosiers.

After a few frustrating efforts to release some recorded work, James came into contact with Multi-Instrumentalist and Producer Geordan Reid Campbell (The Hics, The Noisettes) towards the end of 2015. In November 2016, James self-released his debut four track EP, Lost Boy on his own SOAC Records label which hit the top 5 in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart following a packed out launch at the Water Rats in Kings Cross.

Booked Paddy James for a Private Party
5.0   Verified review

We first saw Paddy at a pub in Botley and instantly loved his performance. Following seeing him at the pub singing live on a couple of occasions we decided to try and book him for our summer BBQ, we were so pleased when he decided to come to us to do a private performance. We obviously knew just how brilliant Paddy is, but our guests coming were a bit sceptical before arriving as to how good he was going to be, once he started singing everyone changed their minds. We have since been asked for his details from friends and neighbours and want to book him again ourselves for next year.

Paddy it great to both watch and listen too, he has a great personality with the ability to get people to join in and enjoy themselves. We are hooked and can't wait to see him perform again.

Booked Paddy James for a Company Party
5.0   Verified review

After the success of his two sets at our Be Together Festival and our national training day, we had to book Paddy for our office launch. Charming yet modest, he engaged the crowd with a medley of covers and original songs which left the 70 strong guests calling for an encore over and over.
