James Reid

As the vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for The Feelers, James Reid has already established himself as one of New Zealand’s most successful song writers and musicians. He and his band The Feelers have sold more albums than any other New Zealand band.

Hailing from Christchurch, in the South Island of New Zealand, James started his musical career at the age of four. His first

party appearance was on his father’s knee with a breath-taking rendition of Glen Campbell’s Rhinestone Cowboy. The country feel has still remained in the music, although since the age of four the influences were many and varied. From the Beatles, Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, Sting, Cat Stevens, The Kinks, The Jam through many a folk singer to Grunge, The pixies, Pearl Jam, Sound Garden etc, the list goes on. Classical to Heavy Metal. Reid says “If it’s good, it’s good. Doesn’t matter the genre."

Now James brings his music to the canvas. James attended the prestigious University of Canterbury Ilam with two Scholarships to enter the School of Fine Arts where top New Zealand Contemporary Artists such as Bill Hammond, Seraphine Pick and Peter Robinson attended.

James' paintings define the magic and energy that is “Rock and Roll” Also Reid would like you to remember, “Art is never finished, only abandoned."
