Rosie + James are an acoustic covers duo and DJ service based in Sydney. Together, they have performed at events across NSW, including Mudgee, The Hunter Region, The Central Coast, Narooma and throughout Sydney. Rosie and James have both been part of the NSW music scene for over a decade with their respective bands, and each have earned their Bachelor of Music.
As well as featuring on a variety of side projects and composing her own original work, Rosie has performed, recorded and toured nationally as a vocalist in UACSC and Liam Gale & The Ponytails. Both acts were played regularly on FBi radio, featured in live performances filmed for SoFar Sounds Sydney, and played shows at some of Sydney's most iconic venues, such as The Standard, Oxford Art Factory, The Annandale and The Beach Road Hotel. Rosie's vocal style reflects her wide range of influences, including Beyonce, Sia, Marvin Gaye, Dusty Springfield, Jeff Buckley and Matt Corby.
James is a talented multi-instrumentalist, who has featured in a variety of successful bands on guitar, drums, bass and backing vocals. He played drums for The Rackabones debut EP, and is currently a member of Liam Gale & The Ponytails, Love Swagga, and Mama Schultz, on bass, drums and guitar, respectively. His multitasking is truly something to behold, as he performs all instrumental roles in performances with Rosie. Using a variety of pedals and loopers, the sound that emerges from James' performance is one that would be expected to have been created by several musicians together, rather than just one. James is also an experienced audio technician, who goes the extra mile to ensure that the live sound is clear and balanced.
