"Next Big Thing Semi Final @ Civic Hotel, Perth (31/07/10)"

The mood completely changed as the James Teague stepped up for his chance to impress the judges. For someone who was self-taught, his fingerpicking skills were mind-blowing and his voice stood out from everything else the crowd had previously heard, starting his set with a ukulele and a falsetto. His erratic vocals were reminiscent of the late Jeff Buckley with elements of Bjork thrown in – totally refreshing. Although he was the only one on-stage, his presence seemed to fill it. - Fasterlouder.com

Bio

Channeling some of the more inspired moments in the annals of folk,
country, blues, psych-rock and pop, James Teague has forged a sound
that is remarkably distinctive- a fact that has not gone unnoticed
amidst the rapidly flourishing Perth music scene. His sound is most easily recognized by intricate, dynamic arrangements, unpredictable songwriting and a soaring vocal tremolo. Listen a little closer and you’ll notice the fiercely dexterous fingerpicking and crafty, eloquent lyricism.

Teague has tickled the ears of many in his hometown in recent
times, growing a loyal fan base and sharing the stage with the likes of Bob Dylan, Grace Jones, Elvis Costello and Steve Kilbey.

Hold your breath for the launch of James' debut album, "Lavender Prayers", set for release in March 2012!
