Reuben James

Friday 27 August 2021

British singer, songwriter and pianist Reuben James’ virtuoso jazz techniques and soulful, evocative voice have led him to be widely regarded as one of the most exciting and creatively assured artists to have emerged in recent years.

Although perhaps best known for his ongoing collaborations with Sam Smith, which have included co-writing songs for Smith’s 4 million-selling album The Thrill of It All, James has written for and performed with an array of international star acts including the likes of Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock and John Legend.

Reuben’s Sophmore EP ‘Slow Down’ landed to critical acclaim in 2020, with lead singles ‘My Line’ and ‘So Cool’ achieving radio plays across BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Introducing and Jazz FM. Reuben released his single ‘BBQ Energy’ in late 2020 followed by the star-studded ‘Tunnel Vision’ featuring Frida Touray, Daley with Tom Misch in early 2021.

Reuben returns to his hometown and to the prestigious Symphony Hall stage to perform a headline show as part of the first B:Music Jazz Festival.
