James Crooks’ love of music first kicked off in the passenger seat of his father’s car, drumming along on the dash to the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Phil Collins, and INXS. From here, he developed a love for hip-hop and DJ’ing – collaborating with local artists in his home town of Newcastle. He has since gone on to produce and co-write with the likes of Rüfüs Du Sol, Esoterik, Thelma Plum and Tyne-James Organ, and has toured with and supported Thelma Plum, Glass Animals, HEALTH, SAFIA and Chance Waters, just to name a few.
James Crooks’ moody and infectious new single ‘Move On’ is out now. It follows the debut singles ‘Naturally’ and ‘Not Going Away’.
