With support from Jupiter Skies, Jasmine and Molly Eliza.

Now living in Germany, this songwriter from Inverness, has been touring up and down his adopted country to sold out crowds from Hamburg to Nürnberg.

James has developed his craft by combining strong traditional elements and charismatic vocals with a fresh, credible contemporary swagger and over the years he has supported some of the country’s great artists – Runrig, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Gallagher and Lyle, Hue and Cry, Roddy Woomble and Midge Ure, and has played many Scottish festivals – including XpoNorth, Eden Festival, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Brew at the Bog, HebCelt and Jocktoberfest.

Initially coming to widespread attention in 2011 fronting James Mackenzie and The Aquascene, he struck out and started performing solo a year later. A charismatic and engaging performer, he has continued to develop this early artistic drive, and now boasts an inventive maturity.

All of this work and craft culminated in a watershed year for James in 2015. The release of EP Winter – described by one critic as “a great showcase for Mackenzie’s warm, husky vocals…truly heartwarming to listen” – led to James receiving the “One to Watch 2015” award from Highland radio station MFR.

Over the years, James has supported some of the country’s great artists – Gallagher and Lyle, Hue and Cry, Roddy Woomble and Midge Ure, and has played many Scottish festivals – including XpoNorth, Eden Festival, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Brew at the Bog, HebCelt and Jocktoberfest.
