Equipment used:
For live and studio work: variously Tanglewood dreadnought acoustic guitar, a customised Fender F210 Acoustic Guitar, Fender Stratocaster, ARIA Pro II electric bass, Double Bass, Indian Flute, Harmonicas, Alhambra Classical Guitar, Eko Dreadnaught Guitar (often tuned to DADGDG, DADF#AD or even standard tuning), a box of percussion, panpipes, chinese cymbals and Tibetan Bells, but usually it's just the Fender Acoustic Guitar with DiMarzio and Fishman pick-ups; Newtone Strings; also a Boomerang III Phrase sampler, Korg AX300G's and Boss effects with expression and volume pedals; Hohner and Lee Oskar Harmonicas and a sprinkling of miscellaneous mic's.

For recording I use: n-Track Studio x64bit software, running on 64bit Windows XP; Korg Wavestation SR; Sonor 10"x2" Jungle Snare drum; M-Audio Delta 1010 soundcard; Lexicon effects; a little Mackie 1202vlz pro; a Korg Wavestation and sometimes an Alesis HR 16 drum machine.

I still use my old cassette 4 track as a note pad for ideas as well as minidisc and an old Korg Pandora PXR4 (and paper/pencil/pen of course).
Anything else...?
James was lead vocalist/frontman for Bristol-based band, JEBO from their first gig in 2003 until he left in Spring 2009. Their debut album, featuring James' vocals, was produced by John Burns (Genesis, Jethro Tull, John Martyn, Traffic, Burning Spear and others). James is now working with Burns on his solo album project.
