About James Perryman:

He has been compared to artists such as Ryan Adams, Father John Misty & Sturgill Simpson due to a broad style that ranges from intimate acoustic songs through to full-on foot stomping rock.

Perryman is best known for his work with Australian siblings Angus & Julia Stone and London duo The Honey Ants. This led directly to the recruiting of his own band featuring Tom Quillfeldt (bass) and Rob Pennel (drums). The trio’s early work can be heard on the Live at the Wilmington Arms EP.

After some time off travelling the world, James was joined by vocalist Olivia Coghill, resulting in the subsequent EPs, To Whom it May Concern and Consumed by the View.

Both the new single and the upcoming EP are co-produced by The Honey Ants frontman, John Grimsey.
