21-year-old folk artist James Mcq grew up restless writing a dismantled catalogue of songs on the East coast of Victoria. Through his teens, James began playing with an array of lineups, gaining a following playing at venues around rural Victoria. After schooling was out of the way, James left home to establish his solo career in the city and began focusing on storytelling through his music, drawing inspiration from Melbourne poet Shelton Lea and Algérian writer Albert Camus. With atypical folk moods combined with a disarming onstage presence, James has played some of the most significant festivals in WA such as The Nannup Folk festival, as well as undertaking a 35 date tour across the nation in 2018.
