Rosie + James is an acoustic covers duo and DJ service based in Sydney. Together, we have performed at events across NSW, including Mudgee, The Hunter Region, The Central Coast, The South Coast and throughout Sydney. We have both been part of the NSW music scene for over a decade with our respective bands, and each have earned our Bachelor of Music.
We have been featured in Hello May, Different Weddings, Polka Dot Bride, and Equality Weddings.
About Rosie: 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, Mama Schultz and Liam Gale & The Ponytails. Music featuring her vocals have been played on FBi radio and in live performances filmed for SoFar Sounds Sydney. Rosie has 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, and in 2017 she was scouted to audition for the 2018 season of The Voice.
About James: 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 our performances. Using a variety of pedals and loops, 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.
Rosie & James are massive, massive supporters of marriage equality, and Rosie still gets teary every time she hears the words 'In Australia, marriage is defined as the union of two people, to the exclusion of all others'.
