British singer/songwriter Paddy James makes indie rock & pop recounting the mischief and melancholy of everyday life. A constant gigging regime and a growing live reputation landed him support slots for the likes of Ed Sheeran and the Hoosiers early on. He continues to impress both live and in the studio having toured extensively in the alps for the last few winters.

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 Venue / Pub / Club Event
5.0   Verified review

I have had paddy at our pub twice in the last year. The 1st time he played was in our garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon, he certainly gave the cottage pub a garden party to remember everyone was up on their feet. The 2nd time was a Saturday night inside and once again he had the place rocking, people constantly ask "When is Paddy coming back?". Great singer, great guitarist and a top performer, this man is a must for any event, pure class and a lovey bloke!!!

Booked Paddy James for a Wedding

We found Paddy through social media and decided to book him for our wedding in France. Unfortunately we didn’t get to go and see him live before our event but we knew he was exactly what we were looking for. Such a professional young gentleman, He made the music element of our wedding planning stress-free!

Paddy was very flexible and accomadating when we described exactly what we required for our wedding. EVERYBODY commented on his performance and he was booked by one of our wedding guests for their wedding next year.

You went the extra mile and We would just like to thank you for such an amazing performance from a genuinely lovely chap. We will most definitely be looking to see Paddy live again.

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.
