Fast Five: James Sayer



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I’ve always performed music but writing music came a bit later to me. I think deep down I always knew the only thing I wanted to do was perform and write music!

How would you describe your music?

It’s feel good music! A mixture of Soul/Rock n Roll and Rhythm & Blues.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

This year I had my first headline London show and next week I have another London headline show and one in Birmingham. After that I’ll be back in the studio finishing the full album ready for release next year.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

Definitely Elton John! I’d love to Jam with him on a song but I think I’d be pretty nervous playing alongside him! Another person would be American artist Michael McDonald but his voice is so good, I think I’d be scared to even sing one word!

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

It would have to be ‘If that’s what it takes’ By Michael McDonald. There’s so many incredible tracks on it and his voice is beautiful. It’s inspired my musical journey so much and I have great memories when listening to it.
