I need a little Support: James Riley Feature

So I met James Riley at The Purple Turtle of all places many months back.  His disarming Americana soul music isn’t something you typically see in London, which is ironic considering he won the London Busker’s Award this year in an elaborate official ceremony.  Like any new musical obsession, I was torn between splashing his awesomeness across the internet, or keeping his music secretly to myself- tucked securely in my CD player.  But alas, he is just too good to keep quiet about.
James Riley has that music that feels very familiar because it is so unassumingly catchy.  It’s emotionally engaging without loosing it’s cool. And James himself is very much like that- kind, humble, intelligent and driven.  James is so comfortable on stage and his songs are genuine and well crafted.  Now I have only seen James play with his ridiculously cool spoon-playing little sister Kitty, but he will be bringing his 8-piece orchestra to the show and it is gonna be mean.
If you are in London on Friday November 2nd, I would ask you come celebrate the release of my 3rd solo album ‘The Little Ginger In Me Loves The Little Ginger In You’ at The Purple Turtle, Camden Town.  James is gonna be one of many rocking support acts (and I handpicked them all so you know they are good).
