James was lead vocalist
and frontman for international rock band JEBO from their
first gig in 2003 (supporting Wilko Johnson)
until he left in Spring 2009. JEBO's debut album, Sinking Without
featured James on vocals and was produced by legendary producer John Burns,
his work with Genesis,
Spear and others was mixed by Ben Findlay
of Peter Gabriel's Real
Studios and was released to the German market with a
whole new album cover in late 2008.
In 2008 and 2009 JEBO recorded a number of songs for the second album
including two of James' songs. Here is James' mix of his song Far away from Home - he and John Burns plan
to put finishing touches to the track at some point soon.
The band continued working with John Burns and released the second
album in 2010, "Settle Up or Settle
Down" - check
the JEBO website
"Buy this album it is awesome!!! James
put a passion into the vocals that I have not heard in a commercial
album in a long time. His vocal style is reminiscent of Michael Stipe
at times, but this music has a passion that puts REM to shame." -
JEBO's many successful gigs
with James included The
Albert Hall, memorable appearances for the Classic Rock
Autumn and It
Bites and Night of the Progs at Loreley in July 2007, supporting the original
line-up of ASIA, Jethro Tull
and Fish. You can see songs from this performance here
