Meet the Musician: James Brett

GENRE? Indie rock / alternative

FOR FANS OF: Jake Bugg, Bob Dylan, Mac Demarco

WHY WE ARE DIGGIN HIM: James adds a unique flavour to the local scene with his distinctive vocals and meaningful lyrics… Think Jake Bugg meets Bob Dylan.

THE MUSIC FILES’ FAVOURITE TRACK: Two Lovers Entwined – Take a trip back to the 70s with this hypnotising acoustic number. The gentle but intriguing guitar chords blend well with James’ unique vocals highlighting the true beauty of the lyrics. A dreamy stripped back track that is perfect for that warm summer’s day.
