James Holt is a solo artist from Manchester who has been receiving attention and praise from music industry giants, such as legendary producer Brian Eno, and the listening public alike. James’ musical achievements are all the more impressive considering he was diagnosed with bilateral moderate-to-severe hearing loss at the age of four and has since worked to overcome his disability by graduating with a first class honours degree and MA in Music Composition at the University of Salford. With the craftsmanship and energy of James’ songwriting skills translating effortlessly to his stage performance and – having performed at the UK’s most prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall – James is certainly an artist to watch out for.
I’m very excited to be involved in Brighter Sound’s Mentoring Programme and I’m looking forward to working with my mentor. I have new releases and live events planned for next year so their support and advice will be very useful for my artist development.
