A UK debut for this groove rich, soulful R&B powerhouse duo from Austin, Texas, as they are joined by a full live band featuring Sam Kelly on drums (Cymande) and Richard Sadler on bass.
Bruce James and Bella Black joined musical forces in Austin, Texas in 2011 and have been on a mission spreading the word of ‘Guerrilla Soul’ ever since.

The roots of their music spring from the tradition of Southern Soul from Texas, New Orleans and Memphis, yet they are not a throwback. The foundation of James & Black is the voices and stories in their songs. For this duo though, it is all about the musical canvas being the dirt for the flowers, so to speak – fertile soil for the tune itself to grow.

Since relocating to Europe in the summer of 2012, James & Black have laid a foundation across Europe, playing close to 150 shows per year and covering over 450,000km in the process.

They have supported Gregory Porter and Fatoumata Diawara in Leiden NL at Summer Jazz, Candy Dulfer in Amsterdam at Vondel Park, performed at the Porretta Soul Festival three times now in Porretta Terme, Italy along side artists such as Bobby Rush and Lattimore, Clay Hammond, performed at the Enclave de Agua in Soria, Spain along side Lee Fields and Nikki Hill, performed at the Barcelona International Jazz Festival, and have supported New Yorkers, the Slackers, throughout Germany and Austria.

In April last year they performed at the Baltic Soul Weekender with Sister Sledge, Lenny Williams and CeCe Penniston near Hamburg, Germany and performed a tribute to Allen Toussaint at the Porretta Soul Festival in July. James and Black also appeared at the Peer Blues festival end of 2017 along side ZZ Top, Jools Holland and the Blind Boys of Alabama.
