As a singer/songwriter James Henry gets his strongest influences from 60's pop/rock/folk melodists such as the Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel. His range of style with guitar in hand has close parallels to Paul McCartney in the way he stretches himself from big powerful ballads through quirky light hearted comical stories to high energy rock. For the most part but not solely,
James is a solo acoustic performer and realising the importance of lyrics in a stripped back format, his carefully crafted songs are designed to educate, inspire and humour. With a laid back but engaging stage manner he breaks down the barrier between stage and crowd to create a personal experience with his listeners.
