James Carrington has been compared to such luminaries as David Gray, James Taylor and Paul McCartney. His song “Ache” was used prominently in the hit U.S. television series Smallville, ER and One Life to Live. Carrington has recorded his debut album, which is being produced by major Hollywood film composer Klaus Badelt (Pirates of the Caribbean, Poseidon, Premonition) and features the mighty talents of Michael Landau, Luis Conte, Tom Coster, Abe Laboriel and Abe Laboriel Jr.
Mixing the record is James Guthrie, the British record producer and engineer best known for his work with Pink Floyd, having served as a producer and engineer for the band since 1978. Carrington has received almost 1 million plays on Myspace. He has also been commissioned to write for Toyota and British Telecom in their nationwide advertising campaigns.
Over the past 2 years he has co written with Grammy nominated writer Sacha Skarbek (James Blunt, Jason Mraz), Brit award winner Blair Mackichan, Magnus Fiennes (who co-wrote and produced All Saints million selling debut album, Tom Jones, Morcheeba), Martin Briley (Celine Dion, Pat Benatar, NSYNC), Russ desalvo (Lionel Richie) and Phil Manikiza (Rozalla).
