A singer/songwriter based out of Vienna, Austria, James Hersey delivers hook-driven indie pop confections with electro-pop ambitions.
Hersey spent his formative years honing his musical skills on cello and drums, eventually moving on to guitar. A member of his school's choir, as well as various punk bands, Hersey found himself attracted to a bevy of musical genres, from IDM to hip-hop. Drawing inspiration from artists like Phoenix
, Foster the People
, and John Mayer
, he released his eponymous debut EP, which included the single "Promises," in 2010. A second EP, Twelve, arrived in 2012, and shortly thereafter he inked a deal with Glassnote Records
. His first single for the label, "Miss You," dropped in 2016. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
