Ashley James + Supports - Live @ The Fulford Arms, York

About this event

Bursting onto the UK indie scene just as the naughties band boom began to fade (with the aptly named Likely Lads) lead songwriter Ashley James and his band soon became one of the front runners in the mission to turn the tide on the mainstream music that was disarming bands in the early 2010’s. Their efforts, confirmed by energetic live performances and potent songwriting ability, gained them global attention and nationwide tours and festivals. With airplay on BBC Radio 1, 2, 6music & Introducing plus sync placements on Amazon Prime, they also shared the stage with some huge names on major festival bills such as Leeds/Reading.

The four piece enjoyed a string of popular releases; but fell folly to an era not quite ready to reengage with the age old tale of a rock and roll band from a one horse town.

After mutual agreement the band separated and Ashley James went on to write music with inspiration travelling all the way back to Motown and the 70's pop hits of act's such as ‘Earth, Wind & Fire’, as well as drawing influence from more modern artists like the dearly missed Avicii and the heartfelt elements of electronic music he pioneered.

With a raspy and hard hitting vocal singularity, the multi instrumentalist with a keen ear for an infectious pop chorus’, hit the studio and finally went it alone. The early tracks started to generate interest online, once even going Facebook viral. Inspired, but hit by the 2020 lockdown, ‘James took the time to write and refine a debut EP set for release in 2021. With support from BBC Introducing and an online army of dedicated followers; his huge pop melodies, vocal uniqueness, inter weaved with fat 808's and grooving basslines. The future may finally be the right time for Ashley James.
