James first found success as the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist with multi platinum band Starsailor with whom he still tours and releases the occasional album. ‘Everything Will Be Ok’ (2021) is James’s 4th official solo album following ‘Turning Point’ (2014), ‘Tiger On The Bridge’ (2019) & ‘Small Illusions’ (2021).
Front man of multi-million selling band Starsailor, James Walsh has proven his own worth as a singer-songwriter in his own right. He’s written songs with Eliza Doolittle, Melanie C, Suzanne Vega, and Professor Green – to name a few; as well as writing movie soundtracks.
Starsailor’s initial run of success saw both their ‘Love is Here’ debut album and the 2003 follow-up ‘Silence is Easy’ hit #2 on the UK charts as they raced to a total of 3 million sales. The band also enjoyed more than their fair share of prestigious gigs, supporting the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Police, The Killers, and U2.
James said; ‘I’ve been lucky enough to have had some amazing moments creating music over the years that I’m immensely proud of. But there was something particularly special about my new solo album. Writing these songs has helped me through a turbulent time in my life & recording it in front of the fans & people I work with who’ve been so supportive over the years felt like the perfect way to do it’
James has been prolific during the UK’s Covid 19 lockdown writing & recording numerous songs,’The Places Where Our Love Begun’ EP (2020), the album ‘Small Ilusions’ (2021) & the track ‘Into The Sunrise’ a collaboration with German DJ Eddie Thoneick for Kryder’s Kryteria Records.
