James Walsh, frontman of critically acclaimed UK band Starsailor, will be joined by Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus, Screaming Bikini) on all his Australian dates during March 2012. James Walsh will be performing a series of solo acoustic shows on Australia's East Coast.

In less than 10 years Starsailor achieved what most bands can only dream of. In 2001 and then unknown, they were hailed as the new Coldplay after only their second gig, then they landed the cover of NME magazine which propelled their debut album featuring James' trademark lovelorn voice and epic songs into the spotlight and a million sales followed. Starsailor released 3 further albums including the Phil Spector-produced Silence is Easy and to date have sold over three million albums globally, had 10 top 40 hits (Four to the Floor, Silence is Easy, Good Souls, Tell Me It's Not Over, Alcoholic and more), toured the world with their own sell-out shows, performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, T in the Park and the Isle of Wight Festival, and toured with the likes of the Rolling Stones, U2, The Police and The Killers.

After almost a decade of enormous success fronting Starsailor, James took the difficult decision to put the band on hold and since then he hasn't looked back. He has emerged as a singer-songwriter in his own right, with an acoustic guitar and some big tracks to travel wherever the road may take him. This March, the road will take him to Australia where he will be performing a series of live acoustic shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Byron Bay.

"I am very excited to be doing my first solo headline tour in Australia," says Jame. "I'd like to thank the Australian fans who've waited almost 10 years since the last Starsailor appearance for their patience and support. Can't wait to get out there!"
