Band Info

MOJO- “Sutton Coldfield is not best known for its lonely prairies but, but they’re beautifully evoked on these 10 songs”

UNCUT- “Paced like Gillian Welch at her Bible-black best”

AMERICANA UK- “Lovely delicate dark brooding Americana”

THE SCOTTSMAN- “One of the finest exponents of moss hung backwoods Americana you'll find in the UK”

SUBBA-CULTCHA.COM- “My favourite song? Can you have an album made of favourites?”

WISPERIN AND HOLLERIN.COM-“His voice offers a style that is quite unique”

James Summerfield often sounds like he could be holed up in some moss hung Appalachian cabin, sitting on the porch, banjo on his lap and bottle of hooch at his side, swapping Southern gothic songs of misery and murder with preacher men and moonshiners.
Previously signed to Birmingham’s Bearos Records and Sanctuary Group, in 2002 Buick 6 (later ‘The Toques’) released the quite wonderful ‘Drunk on My Porch’ earning glowing reviews and a John Peel Session. A well received second single, ‘Too Tired to Worry’, followed as did a second Peel Session. In September 2003 James decided to unhitch the wagon and go solo. Result? "A song writer of real flair" as www.Americana-uk.com so sagely put it a few months later in reviewing his self-penned, self-produced and almost totally self-played debut album ‘Hailah, Hailah’ with its yearning lap steel, soulful Hammond and bible black violin.
James’ second album, ‘Paint the Road’ oozes authenticity and has already earned him promising reviews.

Genres: Americana
