James Craise

Lead Tutor

I began my career with the ACM Gospel Choir, and it was an amazing start. As semi-finalists in the BBC competition Last Choir Standing, we toured the UK and performed sold-out shows, supporting some incredible artists like Beverly Knight, Joss Stone, and Russell Watson. I also contributed to two albums with the choir, one of which was notably with the Daily Mail.

After my time with the choir, I became a member of the Glaswegian indie disco outfit PARKA, who were signed to the respected indie label Jeepster. As part of PARKA, I played at many festivals, including T in the Park, and toured with bands such as Foals, Kid Harpoon, The Young Knives, and The Enemy.

Fast forward a bit, and I was discovered by the legendary producer Trevor Horn, who became my manager and mentor as I embarked on my solo career. It was an incredible journey, and I even had the honor of performing with Robbie Williams at the Brit Awards as the closing act when he received his lifetime achievement award.  I often performed with Trevor Horn's supergroup, The Producers, which comprised of legendary musicians and producers like Lol Creme (10cc), Steve Lipson (Jeff Beck, Billie Eilish), Ash Soan (Cher, Seal, Billy Idol)

During this time, I also signed my publishing deal with Perfect Songs and had the opportunity to collaborate with some highly respected writers and artists like Guy Chambers, Steve Lipson, Jamie Hartman, Zak Abel, and Ben's Brother. I even wrote and featured on the single "Dead Mans Shoes" on Professor Green's 3rd album, "Growing up in Public."

Aside from performing regularly in live and recorded studio sessions and serving as a vocal arranger and musical director for choirs, I am a lecturer for the BaHons Music Production & Vocal Performance Degree at the Point Blank Music School in London.

My goal is to help singers get the perfect sound they're after while keeping their vocals healthy and functioning at their best.

Even experienced singers might hit some snags with their range, flexibility, or power, and that's where I come in. In just a short time,

I can help you develop new areas of your voice or relieve any tension or discomfort you might be feeling.

Once we've improved your vocal function, we can explore different singing styles and techniques, from belt to mix to head voice, and more. And if you're looking to really amp up your performance game, we can work on song delivery, stage presence, and even extreme singing styles.

It's all about unlocking your unique style and expression, and I'm here to help and support you in achieving that.

Ultimately, a solid technique, control, and vocal flexibility are the best foundations for exploring your voice stylistically. With these skills, you can remove any barriers to your expression, and I'm here to help you achieve the perfect balance between technique and artistry.
