Despite a life-threatening accident severing tendons in his right arm, South African 22 year-old multi-instrumentalist and musical prodigy James Deacon has overcome all adversities in order to introduce himself to the world via his debut single ‘Not Givin Up’.

Lifted from his debut EP ‘The Calling’, the young frontman has channelled his frustrations through injury to release one of the most thought-provoking singles of 2019. Blending influences from the world of soul, blues, hip hop and indie-funk as well as diverse inspirations that count John Mayer, Nirvana and Al Green, James Deacon looks set to become one of his home-nation’s most engaging songwriters.
