Jon Gomm is an acoustic singer-songwriter with an incredible virtuoso guitar style, where he uses one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, basslines and sparkling melodies all at the same time, and combining styles from blues and jazz to rock and pop. The emphasis is still on the soulful vocals and songwriting however, and his original material is influenced by everything from Robert Johnson to Radiohead.
James Bazley is a talented, enthusiastic and captivating fingerstyle guitarist from North Wales in the UK.
He has been playing the guitar since he was old enough to hold one in his hands. James originally studied classical guitar in great depth, before discovering that his real passion lay with the infinite and alluring possibilities that only fingerstyle guitar can afford. This followed from a chance encounter with Tommy Emmanuel, who challenged his entire world view of what was possible with six strings. This pivotal moment was to powerfully change his life forever. James has been described in reviews as a “guitarist with dazzling dexterity” (Folk Magazine) as well as having “an infectious groove” and “powerful performances” (Thomas Leeb – Acoustic magazine). In 2013 he was also given the title of “1000mph Jim” by Mike Dawes for his ability to fingerpick with speed usually only associated with ninja training.
James plays a blend of his own carefully crafted compositions, coupled with an eclectic array of popular arrangements that showcase the passion, complexity and depth that only fingerstyle guitar can afford.
His stage presence and artistry is consistently complimented wherever he travels. This is in all probability due to the fact that he has spent the last fifteen years as a professional Circus Entertainer. This professional role has seen him perform in a vast array of locations from TV, Theatre, Stage and Big Top whilst also qualifying from the UK’s leading Circus school. This makes him a qualified clown! It would seem that this was always his destiny, as indeed his high school French teacher (& amateur clairvoyant) had predicted many years earlier in his school report!
James currently performs all over the UK and Europe where his fan base, popularity and success is rapidly growing.
His debut album is due for release in spring 2015.
