James Scott is a Brisbane based singer & musician who performs as a soloist as well as in a variety of duos.
A love of music inspired James to ask his parents to buy his first guitar at the age of 7. He instantly fell in love with guitar and playing. At this age he wrote his first (and most popular song) 'Cruisin' with the help of his teacher. He soon outgrew this guitar and ventured into the world of electric guitars. A new teacher brought about a whole new style and new love for guitar.
Soon after he ...joined his first band as a lead guitarist and backing vocalists. After a few years and several gigs the band finished citing 'creative differences'. His passion for music remained and he spent time in various other projects. Eventually the desire and need to step out of the shadows entered so he took to the stage at various open mic nights.
His appetite for music could not be sufficed. With the desire to play music (along with a need to pay some rent) so he took to the streets of Brisbane with a friend (Chris) and entered the world of Busking. Honing his singing and guitar skills on the streets of Brisbane, along with open mic nights eventually led to a couple of gigs. Since this time he has been performing as a Acoustic Soloist as well as part of a duo.
These days you will find him playing numerous Pubs, Clubs and Restaurants around Brisbane as well as private functions. If you're lucky you might even catch him at few of his favourite open mic nights.
