South London's James Vickery is the new face of UK R&B. With his hugely popular COLORS session amassing 29 million views, James caught the attention of many admirers internationally, subsequently leading to the London-born songwriter inking record and publishing deals with LA-based TH3RD BRAIN and Roc Nation respectively despite being born deaf in his left ear. James Vickery is a live artist through and through, validated in the millions of views he has accumulated online for his live performances. His “Live From London” series features JV performing his own songs live with a full band, in unique venues across his home town - giving fans a completely authentic way to experience his music. Following his critically acclaimed “Until Morning” and “Overture” EP’s which saw collaborations with Kenny Beats and SG Lewis, he recently released his debut album "Songs That Made Me Feel", featuring R&B legend Musiq Soulchild and Atlanta hip-hop duo EarthGang. Vickery's unmistakable voice and completely unique take on R&B landed him as one of Complex's British R&B/Soul Artists to watch out for in 2020.
