Hey, I wrote a long intro post but maybe it had too many links or something as it's been "disappeared". I promise I'm not a bot
So I'm James, amateur musician in an objectively terrible garageband with some mates. I have about 30 years of rhythm guitar, 3-4 years of piano accompaniment (all self-taught) plus smatterings of harmonica, bagpipes and 45ish years of singing in the shower and just about everywhere else.
Influences: Ben Harper, Dave Matthews, Paul Dempsey, Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), Prince, Eddie Vedder, Steven Tyler, Tim Minchin, Amy Lee, Stephen Lynch, Paul Simon, Bernard Fanning, Diesel, '70s/'80s rock etc. Anything goes really except hardcore metal/thrash, manufactured pop and the countriest of country. And I can't rap but I'd like to.
Here's one of my home recordings if you're interested. I'll put more on here as I do them.
