We spoke to South Wales born singer, songwriter and performer JAMES FOX recently, just prior to the release of his latest album. After being propelled to fame in 2004 when he represented the UK at The Eurovision Song Contest (Hold On To Our Love), James has gone on to do pretty much everything in a 20 plus year career.
It all began right here in South Wales where he cut his teeth on the stages of the traditional clubs across South Wales, a grounding which more than prepared him for stages on Broadway and the West End.
We won’t go through his entire career path here, but you can take a look at our recent feature and interview with him where he spoke about his new album and just how personal a project it was for him.
We were browsing through Social Media recently and noticed that James had Tweeted an offer to South Wales based clubs and community organisations to give him a shout if they wanted him to come along and play a free gig for them, once current Covid restrictions allow.
As you can imagine the response was phenomenal, in fact thousand of people engaged with the Tweet and there were more than enough local venues who were delighted at the chance of a free gig from James.
Never one to shy away from a little chat with him, we put in a Zoom call recently to see how these shows would work, and why in fact he wanted to come back home (we think he misses his Mum’s cooking). But first a little catch up on his latest album ALL THE FOURS which came out in February. As James told us the reaction from fans and radio stations has been overwhelming.
