There are many terms people use when describing James Blundell. Icon. Legend. Controversial. Rebel. The truth is – James Blundell is all of these things. He is unashamedly honest and comfortable in his own skin. He radiates an enthusiasm for everything that life has to offer and it’s this authenticity that makes him one of the most instantly likable and recognisable artists in Australian music.
Acknowledged by many as the act that single-handedly shaped modern Australian country music by infusing his influences of John Mellencamp, The Band and The Angels with the storytelling ethos of Slim Dusty and his lyrical insight, sharp wit and empathy for the average working man. This combined with his handsome good looks and country charm ensured there was no stopping his success across all demographics.
2019 saw the release of his anticipated new single, “Slip Away”. The song’s origins began some 16 years ago in a writing session with British musician/songwriter/producer, Phil Soussan. Soussan, who’s responsible for big hits by rockers including Ozzy Osbourne, Vince Neil and Toto, received an email from his mate in early 2019 recalling the song. He dug up the original demo and Blundell started road testing it in his live set. It received such a great response from audiences across Australia that Blundell decided to record the track – proof that a great song will stand the test of time.
James Blundell is one of only a handful of today’s country artists who live the authentic life of a country singer. When he’s not touring – he’s managing his family owned property in Stanthorpe QLD. He is an artist of substance and longevity thanks to his unique perspective showcased through song.
