Dallas James is a singer/songwriter from the hills of Byron.

His mellow, acoustic tunes tell poetic heartfelt stories of struggle, love, loss and hope.

His sound is melodic and simplistic, featuring beautifully reverb-laden vocals and poetic lyricism over the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar.

dallas-jamesDallas has played alongside acts such as Ash Grunwald, Phil Jameison (Grinspoon), and Andrew Stockdale (Wolfmother) with his previous band ‘The Grains’, which he fronted. But since stepping into the new lead role and starting a family, Dallas has returned to his roots as a solo artist.

Don’t miss the chance to catch this moving performer – Sphinx Rock Cafe at Mt Burrell on Sunday at 1pm.
