Distinctive, soulful, and brimming with ethereal vitality, James Riley treads a fine line between exquisite pop songcraft, cinematic storytelling, and a disarmingly candid folk voice. Renowned for mustering pin-drop silences in noisy rooms, or coaxing timid audiences into clamorous ovations, James has a distinct knack for building a sense of oneness in a crowd, taking audiences on a rapturous journey with understated yet unshakeable conviction.

James recently returned from 2 years in Nashville, where he recorded his forthcoming debut album “TRANSATLANTICA”, (OUT Spring 2019) with Grammy-winning producer Matthew Odmark.
