In January 2016 London-born singer-songwriter James Riley touched down in Nashville after a year packed with US and UK performances, returning to the city he now calls home to finish creating his fan-funded d̩ebut album. Riley crossed the pond in 2014 after years honing his craft in England, playing to festival crowds of up to 30,000 and receiving critical acclaim from the BBC and PBS for his dreamily poetic lyrics and "fiendishly proficient" guitar style. With tours on both sides of the Atlantic set to accompany the album's release in autumn, James's momentum is starting to gather like never before.
