Warren James began his entertainment career at the age of just 9 years old when he made his first of many BBC Merseyside appearances.
Since those early days Warren has performed in America, Germany and all around the UK – even touring for 10 years with the critically acclaimed theatre production: The Johnny Cash Story. He was voted best performer at 2 national blues festivals and has shared billing with the legendary Joe Brown, Brian May and Joe Pasquale for the show business charity The Grand Order of Water Rats. In addition to this Warren has even worked with the American guitar legend James Burton (guitarist to Elvis Presley, Emmylou Harris and John Denver).
Meanwhile, his debut at Salford’s prestigious Lowry Theatre saw the BBC Media City state that “Roots music has never been in safer hands”.
“Take Grammy winning guitarist Albert Lee, combine it with the legendary James Burton
and add a voice similar to Buddy Holly with the performing energy of Lonnie Donegan – that’s the Warren James sound – truly a class act”
