Nile St. James is a 23 year old singer/songwriter from Limerick City, Ireland. With a unique voice, capable of delivering powerhouse blasts of soulful passion and almost immediately transitioning to a well controlled and pure falsetto, it is no surprise that St. James has been heralded as A one to watch for 2017.

A self-confessed wordsmith, St. James fuses his versatile vocals with brutally honest and heart-wreching lyrics. Stories that tell the tales of love, loss and everything in between you can clearly hear the effect of lyrical idols Stevie Nickes and Joni Mitchell have had on the young newcomer.

With a set of high-energy funk tunes and stripped back folk ballads, Nile St. James gives an honest and passionate performance that takes an audience through a spectrum of emotions.

Nile St. James debut single ‘Fell For You,’ is set for release come June 2017.
