James has is passionate about music making at all levels, and has a broad background. James has played with a wide variety of ensembles, from community choirs to professional groups. Music genres have ranged from Medieval to Present day. He conducted several choirs whilst at University, ranging from fellow music students to community choirs in which members had limited musical knowledge. James' choral background is rooted in Church music; he has sung in church choirs since he was 11, and was privileged to receive the Tenor Choral Scholarship at Bangor Cathedral for 4 years. Instrumental playing also plays a key role in James' life; whilst he is often in demand for his piano ability, this has not prevented him from undertaking other instruments, such as the violin, clarinet, and ukulele.
