James Millier is an alternative country music artist based in Barton on Sea, Hampshire in England. His passion for music happened at a very young age thanks to his family however in his teenage years he made the decision to be wise by studying his first passion in food and lead a life working in the catering industry. During his mid-twenties his love for music became stronger than ever and as fate would have it a love one gave him some singing lessons as a Christmas present where 13 years later to this day, he is still having lessons with the same singing teacher.
Due to his spark being ignited for music, James has been lucky enough over time to learn a few new languages in Welsh and Italian plus he had the opportunities to travel abroad to places like France and Ireland as well as becoming part of a Welsh choir called The Phoenix. However, it was the mark of turning thirty he took the giant leap by releasing solo music under his real name James Baldwin in 2014 but by 2018 his music was evolving and he thought it was a suitable time to go back to his roots by changing his music artist surname to Millier which is taken from his mother side of the family.
Since his surname has been changed to Millier, James's music has been streamed over 150,000 times on Spotify and he also became founder of a Christmas charity single which featured in the official UK top 100 download charts.
Fast forward to 2021, James has come full circle and feels he found his sound in country/folk music because you can hear elements of the truth from his life running through his songs from his younger years living in the countryside in a small village called Shenstone in the West Midlands to living the city life in Birmingham as well as moving to the south coast in Swansea, Wales and now enjoying life in the south of England.
You can hear this new direction of music when James releases 'Brighter Day' on 2nd July 2021
