James Brute writes spooked out songs of love, loss and lust and delivers them in a heady mix of acid blues, doom-wop and rock n’roll.
The former frontman of The Brute Chorus released the a cappella single Bury Yourself in 2014 with long-term collaborator Mat Martin. The single got picked up by John Kennedy on XFM and garnered a range of press including the NME.
Shows followed in support of Nadine Shah, Kingsley Chapman and the Murder, John J Presley, Furs and Big Girls alongside legendary basement parties in Homerton under the old Railroad Café.
As the sound became more expansive he began to build his band, now featuring Dave Ferrett (Bass, Vocals & Percussion), Johnny Manning (Keyboards and percussion) and Findlay William Brown (Drums).
“…a must see for anyone with a hankering for bleak-abilly blues.” – NME

Brudini's music is a soulful, vagabond journey through darkness and light, darkly evoking existentialist and beat traditions.
Multi-instumentalist Brudini has done numerous concerts in London and abroad over the last year, always pushing boundaries in different formats, from conventional full band songs to a cappella, poetry recitations on top of raging jazz drums, bare piano pieces or groovy instrumentals.
'A real and considered piece of artistry .. by a songwriter whose sound is already his own'
