James Southwell Band

James Southwell

James Southwell has been playing guitar & singing since he was only 7 years old. He has played on stage with Australia’s greatest blues band Chain, The Kevin Borich Express, Phil Manning, Stevie Wright and a host of other well known Australian artists. James is heavily influenced by these players as well as Geoff Achison, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Hendrix & Joe Walsh. James was also Angry Anderson’s Lead Guitarist at a recent festival.

He currently has a high-energy electric trio the James Southwell Band, which is sometimes billed as ‘James Southwell’s JUDGEMENT’. He is committed to his chosen career and he is now a full time professional touring guitarist/singer/songwriter. James writes his own material as well as playing some very well thought out covers.
