Smugglers Records described James Canty as a “Banjo wielding Busta Rhymes, maniacal Ian Dury with a Mandolin Jacques Brel but Essex? James Canty self penned songs feed into the everyday, the personal, the tragic, the psychological, the physical, the crazy and the cosy. With cocktail of singer/songwriter chops with distinctly English folk influences topped off with that familiar fire of Jamie T defiant youth, James Canty is luring folk music out of the barn and into the wilderness of the 21st Century”.
We wholeheartedly agree!
