As son of Paul McCartney, the former Beatle and one of the most commercially successful songwriters of all time, it should come as no surprise that James McCartney has the music in him. The singer, songwriter and sculptor has been involved with his father's career for some time, contributing to solo albums and even accompanying Sir Paul on tour.

James' debut release, Available Light, came out last September, and is, as James describes it, "basically rock 'n' roll, clean sounding and vocal." He spent the last 10 years working on the songs, including time in and out of the recording studio with father Paul and David Kahne.
