“James Passey is a rare breed today. A true troubadour of song. There’s something eternal and ancient about his passion – all the great songwriters came from this place.
His voice is a mixture of dust and light. The real deal.”

Martin Page; Legendary Songwriter
(Bernie Taupin, Robbie Robertson (The Band), Tom Jones, Burt Bacharach, Barbra Streisand, Robbie Williams)

“James Passey is carrying the torch for classic English folk songwriters, he also has a way with deft fingerstyle guitar in the tradition of John Martyn and Davey Graham etc .. all topped off with a soulful but real voice. Humility, warmth, class. Shockingly good stuff.“

“James has the ability to finger pick guitar as well as any of the originators, and has a voice that can convey emotion that’s unapproachable. What separates him from his contemporaries is his song writing ability… It’s the best of the past with a connection to the future that is truly able to heal your soul.”

Rog Mogale, Producer / CEO of Void Acoustics

Track   ‘Leave This World Behind’

Dennis Sinnott, Former CEO of EMI Publishing

“Songs from the heart…and reminiscent of early Bert Jansch”

Gordon Giltrap (MBE), Acoustic Guitar Legend

James is a very talented musician and songwriter. He has wonderful ideas, knows his own mind and comes up with brilliant songs. It was quite an honour that he chose to come to me after a long period out of the studio. We got on great and settled into a relaxed but productive working method. I love the sound of his voice; he is a very capable musician and has some lovely guitars, so capturing the performances is just a joy for me. I always love playing so it was very kind of James to invite me to add cello, piano and other parts to the songs. When I was asked to run the Gus Dudgeon (Elton John, David Bowie, Chris Rea etc ) Foundation / J.A.M.E.S Summer Recording Session it was a natural choice for me to invite James and his chosen musicians for a week-long recording project, and everyone involved worked hard to achieve what turned into the terrific “Leave This World Behind” which I’m extremely proud to have been part of!

George Shilling, , Producer (Steve Winwood, Primal Scream, The Soup Dragons, The Cardigans etc etc)
