Matt James hails from the garden of Yorkshire. If Yorkshire is a garden then Sheffield is the proverbial prize winning apple tree. In musical terms at least. A city producing a rich history of top acts. Def Leppard, The Human League, Mr Jarvis Cocker and most recently The Arctic Monkeys. Yet the tree still bears fruit. Matt James has launched himself onto the scene with Gusto. His frank view of the world surrounding him has endeared him to audiences across the county. Looking at his scruffy hair you would have no idea he was an ex soldier. Much like an early James Blunt but not so posh. His songs are most influenced by his Fathers record collection, Fleetwood Mac and the Beautiful South being the strongest. Matt James real name (Matthew James Mclauchlan) performs a hooky narrative of subject matter important to him. Listen closely and its easy to pick out the harmonies Fleetwood Mac would be proud of and the story telling abilities of Paul Heaton.
