"Hi my name is James Peden, originally from Auckland, NZ, I now call Melbourne home. I started out with music as a teenager playing keys in church and became a solo artist in 2005.
I love experimenting with synth/keyboard and electronic sounds to create my music and live shows are full of energy and life. You will hear a unique blend of electronic music, pop, synth and 80s sounding vocals.
I have been compared to the likes of Pseudo Echo, David Bowie, Potbellez, & Peking Duk.
Like to experience something different in my live shows? I use flashing neon lights from my keyboard stand and from my clothing while I perform original songs like New Future, Superhero, Speed of Sound, & Together to name a few."
