“Amidst the wash of social media mania and pop overload – there is and always will be room for the lone figure of the singer songwriter!
Those that shun the “fad” sounds of over polished, over produced mainstream music and just get on with what they love the best…writing simple, heartfelt melodic songs for others to hear.
James Passey is one such animal.
From his early Maidstone days playing the pubs and clubs around the county – he still echoes of James Taylor …Van Morrison … and a whole host of the greats that have trod before.
Yet despite his dislike of the “techno age” – his journey gathers pace. A string of landmark performances and an involvement in the new “Gus Dudgeon Foundation” project have all led to him being snapped up by the new label “Uniq” – distributed globally through Universal.
From his haunting melodies and epic tunes to his oddball image and irresistably wicked sense of humour …
James Passey flies in the face of the modern age.
A breath of fresh air .. amazing songs …and not a SnapChat in sight !”
