This is an archive of the band profile for James Coley.
I'm a Singer/Guitarist from Carlton (between Leeds/Wakefield).
During 2013 I have had a song broadcast on BBC Introducing and was a Featured Artist on Love Leeds Radio. I won Aire's Got Talent and performed on the Main Stage at The Aire Do at Cliffe Castle, Keighley on Saturday 3rd August.
I play an extensive repertoire of covers by bands and artists including: Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Simon & Garfunkel, Scouting for Girls, The Beatles, Roy Orbison and many others. I also write and perform my original songs at showcase events.
I've been performing at Open Mic nights since I was 12 and started busking in Leeds when I was 15. During the last 18 months I have played across West Yorkshire and also a couple of performances further afield (Perranporth in Cornwall & Soldeu in Andorra).
I host acoustic evenings, open mic nights and similar events in pubs, bars and restaurants. My performance fee is very competitive and I have all the necessary equipment including a 500w Yamaha PA system, and I also provide posters/flyers for my events..
