Having extensively toured Europe as a pianist, co-writer and collaborator for Adam Barnes, James set his sights on creating his own work informed by his experiences of love and heartbreak, finding an identity within the LGBT+ community, and recovery and rehabilitation from a rare heart condition.
Walker is inspired by artists such as Conor Oberst, The Weepies and Damien Rice and draws on the influences of Foxing, Pavement and Tigers Jaw. James has performed over 200 shows in the past year over the UK, EU and USA.
James Walker’s first full-length album ‘English Bones’ will be released via Wild Native Records and was produced by Sam Winfield (Amber Run, Dry the River, Supergrass). It’s a collection of songs that James has created over the past eighteen months and it tackles issues of identity, nostalgia & celebrity stalkers.
‘English Bones’ is available to pre-order now and will be available from the 27th of October at all the usual major outlets.
