UK Hip-Hop star in the making Piers James is continuing to separate himself from the pack. With Hip-Hop such a fervent battle ground for young MCs Piers is back to take his place with his latest offering ‘These Nights’ (out MAY 19th). A laid back boom-bap ode to friendship, family and future good times. With a nod to early Nas material, cut with heavy drums and Piers’ laid back delivery to evoke his influences (Tribe Called Quest and The Neptunes) perfectly.

To back up his new release, Piers is giving as much back to his local community as possible and will be performing talks at Ipswich Academy, in May. James explains: “I want to wanted to express the importance of nurturing the creative talent of our youth and to let them know that life is full of potential whatever it throws at you. We should be supporting the younger generation with knowledge and more enabling environments in music where they can develop their potential to the fullest while meeting other creatives along the way.”
