"Daryl James delivers something urgent and alive with liquid guitar lines threading their way in and out of some delicious footstompery. Hard not to image a sweaty, writhing mass totally losing themselves to this kind of thing under a festival big top before too long." Matt Webber - ABC Gold Coast
Hailing from Snowdonia North Wales UK, Daryl James fuses gritty ska/blues with raw acoustic roots, bringing to life his down to earth and soulful songs with truly innovative and enchanting musicianship.
After the success of the release of the ‘The Wolf Is At The Door’, the first single from the upcoming debut album ‘Insofar’, Daryl’s passionate live performances evoke everything from introverted retrospection to wild untamed dance-floors. With an earthy blend of pure acoustic and gritty overdriven guitars he plays with innovative tunings, intricate fingerpicking and body percussion, to all out driving blues/rock riffs and soaring solos. Topped off with haunting, smooth yet husky vocals, whether it's with his homemade full foot drum set and live looping, or with his full band, he guarantees a live show that will have your feet and jaw on the floor!
