James Yorkston

was a member of the infamous Fence Collective (King Creosote, The Beta Band, KT Tunstall) from Fife, Scotland. The solo career by the singer-songwriter kicked off, when John Peel played one of his demo on his show on Radio 1. The song was released by Bad Jazz Records in 2001. Yorkston sent a copy of the single to John Martyn, asking him for a support slot on his forthcoming Edinburgh date, and John Martyn responded by offering Yorkston all 27 dates on his UK and Ireland tour. Subsequently he signed to Domino Records the following year, and recorded five albums up to now for the prestigious label.
