James Hollingsworth

James Hollingsworth

South-West England-based James Hollingsworth has a unique, complex acoustic guitar finger-style, reminiscent of Andalusian guitar, fusing elements of folk, blues, trance, metal and psychedelic rock. Since turning professional in 2006, he's played numerous festivals, private bookings, folk, acoustic and rock venues nationally, supported Nick Harper, Cara Dillon, Hazel O'Connor, 60's legends It's a Beautiful Day and Barry 'The Fish' Melton (of Country Joe and The Fish).

'Doing it the old way' by paying his dues far and wide, practising hard, busking nationally, and never doing the same set twice: James picks material with his mood and that of the audience. As well as being a critically acclaimed songwriter, he performs soulful interpretations from his repertoire of 300+ covers, including solo acoustic Pink Floyd Nights.

As frontman with rock act JEBO , with whom he performed at London's Royal Albert Hall & Loreley (DE), James met and and is continuing to learn from the musical experience of legendary Island Records producer John Burns.

Press:

"Fascinating one man band James Hollingsworth comes to Midsomer Norton's Wunderbar tonight. James conjures some wonderful soundscapes with guitar effects and loops to create colour and build the suspense." - Somerset Guardian (2014)

"James Hollingsworth has a 'gorgeous, authoritative and clear voice'; 'one of the best songwriters in the country" ~ (Bristol Rocks).

"James performs regularly several times a week up and down the country honing his incredible talent. He has an extraordinary vocal and is a genius guitar player too." ~ Seend Acoustic Club (2012) seendacoustic.org

"James Hollingsworth is no stranger to Bristol audiences and we have come to expect strongly crafted, beautifully sung songs and stunning guitar work." ~ www.crackerjack.co.uk

"... Bristol-based guitar wizard and songwriter, who has been compared to Richard Thompson, Al Stewart and early Fleetwood Mac, travels in possession of a mean harmonica style and a rapid-fire, Spanish-influenced guitar-picking technique." ~ The Independent (5 best gigs)
