Hailing from Australia’s Gold Coast, James is now based in Manchester, slapping the skins for Indy Rockers ‘FAIRCHILD’.

“From Australia, a new group who raid the 1980s new­-wave archives with beautiful results”

The Sunday Times

FAIRCHILD have spent the last two years touring through Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and North America. They have also supported the likes of Neon Indian, Parachute Youth, Kids of 88 and Northeast Party House while releasing their ‘Burning Feet’ & ‘Sadako’ EPs in 2014.

FAIRCHILD are set to continue their streak of 1980s musical praises with the release of their third EP ‘Breathless’, out February 26th 2016 via the band’s own label ‘Canvas Sounds’. Produced by friend and collaborator Catherine Marks (Foals, The Killers, Wolf Alice) and recorded on the Gold Coast.

They supported Grammy nominated rockers MUTEMATH on their Vitals UK & Europe tour in January 16. FAIRCHILD will be touring nationally in February & March. Stay tuned for more.
