Nate James Nate James
British singer-songwriter

05/02/2017 5PM | GUEST | DJ Sly

British sensation, Nate James is not your typical vocalist. His extraordinary voice is music to the world’s ears. James’ new project In My Skin is not just a typical collection of infectious songs. No, In My Skin is a movement.


Since bursting onto the music scene in 2005, British soul singer-songwriter Nate James has sold over 1,000,000 albums internationally, becoming one of the most successful independent soul recording artists globally.


His debut album Set The Tone, with its live band funk sound, was heavily influenced by the classic soul artists Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, earning Nate three MOBO nominations for Best Newcomer and Best R&B Artist and Best UK Male.


His sophomore album Kingdom Falls was described by critics, in turn, as ‘fantastic’, ‘glorious’, ‘a masterpiece’ as well as ‘lush and masterful’. In-between the two studio albums, Nate released the four-track EP, Funkdefining, collaborating with some of the best producers in the UK including Mark Hill, Johnny Douglas, Danny S and Don-E. The title track went on to feature in Hollywood film, Run Fatboy Run, firmly cementing Nate as a star with international appeal.
