Garry James

Garry JamesBorn in the “Land of Song’ Garry has one of the voices for which Wales is reknowned. Starting at the tender age of 7, Garry’s musical apprenticeship started in brass bands.

He progressed through various bands to become part of the world champion ‘Cory’ brass band, playing to packed houses at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

During his teens Garry tought himself guitar, and with a few friends formed the band Racing Cars. He co-wrote the bands hit “They Shoot Horses Don’t They?” and toured the U.K. and Europe for the next few years.

In 1982 Garry took a major step by leaving a promising career in Britain to emigrate with his young family to Australia. He was soon playing in the show band ‘The George Boys’, then followed up with the wonderful duo ‘True Grit’.

Releasing 2 albums in this time, Garry was also in demand for his production knowledge and produced 3 albums for local artists. He also co-wrote a collection of songs transposed from poems called ‘Palace of Dreams’; one of the songs given 3rd prize by the Tamworth Songwriters Association.

Garry’s musical ability as a singer/ songwriter is well respected with publishers throughout Australia the U.K. and America.

On stage he can please a wide audience be they in a club or pub. His song list reads like a top 50 songs for each of the last 50 years with well known ballads, country & rock songs to get any venue in the mood.

He is one professional entertainer that many other musicians would love to emulate.

Modest in his talent, Garry gives much of his spare time to struggling artists, to give back something to an industry that has given him so much pleasure.

Definitely worth seeing. Enjoy Garry James.
