Alistair James, from Eston in Middlesbrough, north east England, began writing music in 2005 when he was still at school. As a frontman and songwriter, he played shows up and down the country with regular visits to venues like Londons Dublin Castle which led to a small independent record deal, an album and support gigs with bands like The Beat and Twisted Wheel.
2014 proved to a be a pivotal year for Alistair James. New York producer Mark Plati, known for his work with David Bowie, The Cure, Prince and Janet Jackson praised Alistairs music, saying he could hear the joy” in his playing and invited him over to New York to record. The New York sessions resulted in Alistairs James new single Have You Ever Been Low? An infectiously upbeat track which showcases Alistairs songwriting talent and style perfectly.
We really love the accoustic version here. You can visit Alistair’s soundcloud page for the ‘rock out’ version.
