New Orleans piano, funky Hammond Organ, and raw bluesy vocals
Dillion James brings a party starting boogie and funky vibe that transports his audience to a time and space where the rigmarole of everyday life can easily be forgotten. His foot stompin, butt swingin' blues is a sure thing when it comes to celebrating the start of a weekend.
Bringing the freedom from the hills of the Atherton Tablelands to the heart of the city, Dillion has earned his bread in almost every town in Queensland and Australia along the way. Whether working as a farm hand, electrical engineer, or playing the blues in the local night club or pubs, he knows how to read a crowd, and writes songs that have something for everyone in the community.
With roots firmly embedded in New-Orleans piano & funky Hammond Organ, Dillion James has re-birthed the sound of and earlier era. His ability to tickle the ivories has long been recognised within the music industry. Whether holding the spotlight in his own right or slotting in as a session musician, if you can dance to it, the 2010 BASEQ blues performer of the year can play it.
