With over 8 million You - tube views & 2020 Blues Emerging Artists Award Winner James Oliver has already rubbed shoulders with many of the greats of the guitar firmament Albert Lee..Bill Kirchen..Greg Koch to name a few  Now, having recorded three vital, very contemporary albums with his old band, he is preparing to write a new chapter of not only his career but also Welsh music history.

His progress since performing at Glastonbury in early 2012 has been steady with nearly 2000 gigs since. See him on stage, though, and spectacular is very much the word. Little wonder the late, great Deke Leonard of Man/Iceberg fame was moved to say that ‘Speaking as a guitarist, James Oliver scares the hell out of me.’

Bill Kirchen says  James Oliver is the real deal, a passionate roots rocker loaded with guitar firepower.

As music business veterans will tell you, success is 10 per cent inspiration and 90 per cent perspiration. As he enters the next stage of his career, James Oliver has a track record that shows he will not allow an ounce of his talents to be wasted. And with new musicians to interact with, chances are the music in store will exhibit hitherto unheard dimensions to delight his growing army of fans.  James playsBlues, rock a billy, rock and country…it’s all here in one 'explosive pickin package’.
