James Abberley


Thursday 4th April, 8:30pm. Free Entry

Originally from Adelaide, James has called the Ningaloo Reef home for the last five years.

His love of surfing and the outdoors led him to integrate his passion for the north-west's remoteness and barren beauty in his hypnotic and talented take on solo Indi/roots. James released his new single (Into The Sun) in November 2019, and it has since seen him take his music around the country to perform at festivals, breweries, pubs, public spaces, and intimate backyard shows.

After also recently forming a new three piece Roots/Hip-Hop band with (Downsyde member) Darren Reutens and (Dave Man Collective member) Dave Mann, 2019 has so far been a very busy year of touring the South West for James.

James' lyrics are heartfelt and each song contains a compelling narrative that weave seamlessly in to his crafted and soaring melodies. James's vast musical talents shine through his mesmerising performances, described as both energetic and soul soothing at the same time, with a perfect blend of Indi/roots delivered upbeat with masterful guitar work, toe tappin' looping, bass drum stomping and entrancing falsetto break downs. Don't forget your dancing shoes.
