Patrick James grew up in coastal NSW town of Port Macquarie and has always been inspired by lyrically-driven guitar-based music like Bob Dylan and Colin Hay. That said, you can hear touches of Bright Eyes, Damien Rice, Boy And Bear and Fleet Foxes in Patrick’s songwriting, which essentially combines pretty chord progressions, acoustic guitar, a clever ear for harmonies and a charmingly unpretentious singing style with some very poetic and lovely lyrics.
