James Carrington biography


James Carrington is an emerging singer, songwriter and actor from the U.K. After studying at Edinburgh University, Carrington gained an acting diploma from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. He has appears in such shows as "Eastenders," "London’s Burning," and "Out of Sight". Carrington originally formed the band Little Giants in 1999, before writing some extraordinary new material that forms his own new album and live sound. Carrington's music mixes the sound of intricate acoustic guitar, piano, oboe, violin, cello and occasionally trumpet. Carrington has been compared to such luminaries as David Gray, James Taylor and Paul McCartney and his inspirational music has attracted the attention of such stars as Sheryl Crow and Coldplay, who both regard themselves as fans.
In May of 2005, Carrington appeared at MUSEXPO in Los Angeles at the invitation of Sat Bisla (A&R Worldwide), who co-organized the event. In November of 2006, Carrington's song "Ache" was featured in the hit U.S. television series "Smallville." Fans immediately began to ask about the musician behind the song and demand for Carrington has begun gaining increasing exponentially.
Now residing in Los Angeles, Carrington is currently recording his debut album, which will feature the mighty talents of Michael Landau, Abe Laboriel and Abe Laboriel Jr. The album will be produced by Klaus Badelt, who has rapidly become one of the biggest film composers in Hollywood over the last few years (Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Poseidon, Premonition and Constantine). Klaus has recently finished the score for a film called ‘Rescue Dawn’ (Directed by Werner Herzog and starring Christian Bale). Upon viewing the film, James was inspired to write a song. Klaus loved it and promptly put him in a studio with Craig Eastman and “Lights” evolved into a track that appeared on the soundtrack of the film.

James has recently been picked up for management by Robert Urband & Associates, Inc. whom primarily manage Film & TV Composers, such as Elmer Bernstein (Ten Commandments, Magnificent 7, The Great Escape, Ghostbusters, My left foot); Michael Kamen (over 80 motion pictures including Die Hard and Lethal Weapon series, X-Men, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, as well as orchestrating Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’); Alexandre Desplat (Girl with a Pearl Earring, Birth, Syriana, The Queen, The Painted Veil, The Golden Compass and Lust, Caution); Vangelis (Chariots of Fire, Blade Runner, and Alexander); Edward Shearmur (College Road Trip, Epic Movie, Charlie’s Angels 1 & 2 and Wings of a Dove); amongst many others.
