The Soundhouse & Wake up promotions present Starsailor’s James Walsh for an intimate show on Saturday 2nd April!
After almost a decade with his enormous yet somehow tender, fragile voice fronting multi-million selling band Starsailor, James Walsh has emerged as a singer-songwriter in his own right, with his debut solo album, TURNING POINT (released 2014). The album is a collection of 11 incredible compositions, which showcase James’ maturity as an exceptional songwriter and unique vocalist.
At this point it’s worth considering the overnight success and instant stardom James experienced in Starsailor. One minute the band were unknown in Wigan, the next they were being hailed as “the new Coldplay” after only their second gig, and front covers of magazines like NME proclaimed propelled their debut album – featuring what would become James’s trademark lovelorn voice and epic songs – into the Top 10. They ended up selling over three million albums, and enjoying adventures like supporting U2 at the Stade de France, when 2004’s Four To The Floor was Number One in the country and seeing the stadium “go absolutely mad”, before watching U2 and ending up in Dublin, being offered advice by Bono. All of this began when James was only 21 years of age.
TURNING POINT is very much a coming of age album, full of wonderful examples of James’s ability to weave inspiring melodies round simple chords, creating timeless and classic songs.
Expect to hear the very best of Starsailor and James solo material in an intimate setting!

The Soundhouse is delighted to welcome the return of Sheffield’s Indie stars The Crookes tonight in support of their new album “Lucky Ones”.
Steve Lamacq called them “one of the most hardworking and prolific bands of the underground.” Nylon Magazine labelled them “potential leaders of England’s smart, taut ‘New-Pop’ movement” and Popmatters simply insisted they make “near-perfect guitar pop.”
They are joined on tour by the incredible talent of Misty Miller who returns to the venue after a stunning performance in 2013.
Local support from Ross Willett.

Alternative band from the city of Hull.

The band also featured on Radio 1′s best of BBC Introducing list 2015 as well as earning a slot on the Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds Festival. Check out their new single ‘Popular Music’.
