We’re so excited to welcome the multi-talented UK-born singer-songwriter James Walker to the Maximal Music Sync Roster!
Introspective songwriter James Walker was born in the UK, but has spent the past three years traveling across Europe and the United States honing his craft and performing as many shows as possible.
Initially a session musician, James played on extensive tours with Adam Barnes, by proxy befriending and supporting talents like Matt Simons, Chris Ayer, and Joseph & Maia. In 2014 he was diagnosed with a rare heart disorder and underwent major surgery. He realized during this time, importantly, that life is short, and just how much we take for granted. James writes with a sense of urgency and longing in his music, and record by record is finding his voice and resonance within Europe’s indie music community.
His debut record, English Bones (2017), gave James exposure to a global audience. The curation of teams such as Alexrainbird granted millions of streams on YouTube, while international press via BBC, The Huffington Post and Ear to the Ground culminated in being handpicked by Spotify and Universal to appear on their ‘Easy’ and ‘Lazy Sunday Morning’ playlists.
His sophomore record, produced by Sam Winfield (Amber Run, Bring Me The Horizon, Supergrass) will be released over the latter stages of 2019 and into 2020 under AWAL/Kobalt.
