The music career of James Crooks first kicked off in the passenger seat of his father’s car, drumming along with his hands on the dash to the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Phil Collins, and INXS. From here he learned to play guitar, bass, and drums by the age of 17, and developed a love for hip-hop music and DJ’ing – collaborating and performing with local artists in his home town of Newcastle.


With sights set much higher, James Crooks has since gone on to produce, record, and tour under various monikers with some of the most accomplished in the industry, including Rufus, Health, SAFIA and Tigertown.
