Piers James is a British producer, singer & rapper creating sounds inspired by his experiences and journey so far.
With his musical background/taste shaped by artists such as J Dilla, Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Andre 3000, Pharrell and more. When listening to Piers' style it has an authentic 90’s boom-bap feel but with a new school vibe, mixed with his natural charisma and finesse there is something really refreshing and original about Piers which gives him a unique flavour to the UK Rap scene.
Piers broke into scene in 2016 with ‘My Universe’ that received praise from the likes of Wonderland Magazine, Clash Mag, MTV, Pigeons & Planes, Line Of the Best Fit and Chloe Grace Moretz. Following on from the success of the Vibes & Tribulations EP he then released his 2nd of instalment of the series in 2017 with tracks like ‘Unfinished Business’ and ‘These Nights’ being used by Original Penguin and Latitude Festival, as well as gaining support from Complex, Radio 1, 1xtra, Reprezent and many other DJs.
Beginning 2018 strong, his first release of the year ‘Done Properly’ was premiered on DJ Target’s 1Xtra show and went on to receive support from Kiss FM, BBC Radio 6, GRM Daily and was added onto the BBC Introducing Mixtape whilst achieving over 100k stream across platforms in just under a month. Piers is a prime example of distinctive British hip-hop, which presents a fresh urban sound whilst still drawing inspiration from old- school legends.
