James joined Alone with Wolves at the age of 22, where they quickly rose to recognition in the metal scene
in the UK. Playing sold out shows, prestigious venues, touring around the UK and playing some of the most well known festivals in the world.
He has also been a part of well known bands Imicus and Seasons before moving to Australia. James now is one of five members of Australian Punk Rock band - Catholic Guilt.
They have recently signed to LA record label Wiretap Records.
Having hit stages all-across the Aussie eastern seaboard in 2018, in support of some of the Aussie scenes best acts, Catholic Guilt hit 2019 in blistering form with the fierce anti-church child abuse cover up anthem “The Awful Truth” debuting on Triple J and landing on multiple Spotify editorial playlists, with the accompanying video picking up thousands of views.
Catholic Guilt followed up with the single “Song of the Renter” a distinctly Australian flavoured rocker with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and a defiant punk rock spirit which debuted on Triple J’s Short.Fast.Loud, before finding favour with the likes of Richard Kingsmill.
