James Yuill Biography

James Yuill is known for his incredible one man electro-folk shows which he has toured around the world alongside the likes of Pheonix, Hot Chip, Royksopp, Temper Trap and M83. His music is constantly popping up on TV shows like Gray's Anatomy, Scrubbs and Inbetweeners and he has also created the music for and starred in his own Guinness commercial.

Like many music lovers of his generation James Yuill has a passion for both the emotional songwriting and atmospheres of artists such as Nick Drake, Radiohead and Sufjan Stevens and the visceral beats and dynamic rhythms of Justice, Chemical Brothers and Aphex Twin. Unlike anyone else however, James has fused these seemingly disparate influences into a magical sound of his very own, something that didn't go un-noticed by radio, with DJs including Huw Stephens, Colin Murray and John Kennedy all championing him on air.
