British singer songwriter Sarah James formed her then unique two-piece band Two Timers in Paris, France in 1993, a minimalist approach which surprised many thousands across Europe and beyond with the sheer power of their performance. Over 20 years they honed a formidable live reputation, touring extensively throughout Europe and beyond, earning guest spots with artists as diverse as the Corrs, John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Maceo Parker, Joe Satriani, the Stranglers and Status Quo as well as billing on major European festivals.
Channeling broad musical influences from classic soul, roots and blues, Americana and psychedelia, Sarah James’ story telling commands attention. A multi-tasking vocalist /drummer/ harmonica player, the energy and sensitivity of her performance leaves none indifferent. She combines instruments with ease, her powerful voice reminiscent of Sam Brown or Julie Driscoll.
4 CDs of original self-penned songs earned her a feature on BBC Radio 2 Paul Jones show and favourable reviews in the Times, Folk Roots, Rock & Folk and Get Rhythm. In 2015 Sarah formed rock/blues/soul band Red Belly Turtles in Greece, and she is now back in France with new project currently writing with guitarist Jeremie Tepper (Vincent Bucher, Steve et Patrick Verbeke, Captain Mercier…) with a new Sarah James Band album planned for late 2018.
