James’ vocal line interweaves beautifully with Ward Thomas’ harmonies in ‘Halfway’. Speaking on the single James said, “I originally wrote ‘Halfway’ as a solo performance, and the original version that appears on my album is just me on vocals. But after we recorded the track, it was obvious that this song was really meant to be a duet all along. Because the track has a real Americana vibe, I knew immediately that I needed the best Country singers I could find. I had to look no further than Ward Thomas, who really deliver a powerful performance on this duet.”

James kicks off the tour with support from Ward Thomas on February 14th in Birmingham and finishes at London’s Royal Albert Hall playing shows across Europe throughout the run.
