Like many before him Warren James lives on the road, touring the lesser trodden path and entertaining audiences. His own high energy concerts have taken him across Europe and America, whilst shared billing with some iconic names, Brian May and Joe Brown among them, highlight a growing reputation. In 2011 Warren performed an amazing 166 shows and reviews from his 2014 concert at Salford’s Lowry theatre and Huntingdon Hall in Worcester saw the media exclaim that the ‘acoustic-roots revival has never been in safer hands’.

Based in Warwickshire (United Kingdom) Warren regularly tours his solo concerts across Britain and Germany. He has played electric lead-guitar with many country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll shows and with his playing style comparable to Albert Lee and James Burton he is a popular choice. Warren’s fast acoustic-lead style has seen him employed with many popular bluegrass groups and in addition to all of this he plays banjo with trad jazz and blues bands both at home in the UK and on the continent.
