WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT ALASTAIR JAMES
Edwina Hayes – “From the moment I first heard Alastair play I became a fan. His lovely playing and singing drew me in and struck me in exactly the same way that hearing James Taylor or Neil Young or Bob Dylan for the first time did, and I knew, in that way that you just know, he was one of the greats.
His songwriting is exceptional, his guitar playing and voice are gorgeous, and along with a wonderful delivery and stage presence unusual in such a young performer he really is quite simply, brilliant.”
Jon Gomm – “Alastair first opened for me on a gig in Scarborough when he was just 14 years old – I was sceptical but the promoter was raving about him. He was great, and since then he’s just grown and grown as a musician. Highly recommended!”
Tony Moore – Director of Music, Art and Development for The Bedford and Regal Room – “Alastair has a hit voice, filled with intention and focus. Like a vintage single malt whiskey, sipped slowly, it warms the heart and uplifts the soul. He’s also got a rare understanding of great song structure and channels some of the greats of the past whilst adding his own unique spin on everything”
Home Spun Show – “Brillliant young singer songwriter Alastair James brings his new band to the Home Spun Sessions. Alastair’s songs are reminiscent of Paul Simon at his best, and this cat is only 20 years old so expect great things! You heard it here first”.
