THURSDAY 26 OCTOBER - 8:00 PM
Virtuoso jazz techniques and soulful vocals from British singer-songwriter, producer and pianist Reuben James.
Reuben James is widely regarded as one of the most exciting and creatively assured artists to have emerged in recent years. His infectious magnetism has led to a long list of artists lining up to collaborate with him. He has worked with superstars from Stormzy and Sam Smith to the likes of Herbie Hancock, Lang Lang, Marcus Mumford and Disclosure. These collaborations, blended with influences such as Frank Ocean, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Robert Glasper, have led to James’ unique sound and style.
Releasing his music on his own record label is something that James has sustained and championed the entirety of his career. It allows him to control every aspect of his music and legacy. He oversees a back catalogue that has now amassed in excess of 50 million plays across all platforms.
One of UK music’s most interesting emerging voices, don’t miss the opportunity to see him live at Turner Sims.

He quickly established his credibility and developed his own unique personal sound. He takes inspiration from diverse angles of soul, jazz and gospel in his own music, including Massive Attack, Gorillaz, Joy Division, Bootsy Collins, Stevie Wonder and Miles Davis.
