James Hurley

James Hurley creates a seductive blend of jazzy, blues-pop-folk that has been called "Sting meets the Beatles...Clapton makes the introductions".

With his smooth, passionate voice, unpretentious jazz-like virtuosity on guitar, and eloquent lyrics, he leads the listener through songs of romance, tales of whimsy, and stories of life lived; all with a dash of wry humor and disarming honesty.

His third solo release “Tempest in a teacup” reinforces his well-deserved reputation as a consistently compelling artist whose music is a reflection of the life he lives. For more, visit
