Don't expect Biz Markie to play any of his music. I guess the Filmore is not paying him enough to do that and or he may have to pay the record co. That's my guess

This was a fun event in a great venue. James McCartney and his band are all very talented and I look forward to hearing more from them. Thanks, Goldstar for offering discounted tickets.

Quotes & Highlights

Listen to a sampler of McCartney’s work.


The release and international success of James McCartney’s debut digital-only EPs, _Available Light _and Close At Hand, introduced a talented singer-songwriter and his music to the world. Now, James McCartney embarks on the next phase of that introduction with his first-ever physical release: _T__he Complete EP Collection_. This special two-disc set produced by David Kahne and Paul McCartney, includes James’ debut EPs in their entirety, along with an additional EP’s worth of five never before released bonus tracks. 

The Complete EP Collection is the result of James McCartney working on and off in the studio for over two years. He played most of the instruments, including bass, guitars, and piano — and of course, he sings. “I really wanted to wait until I had the strongest possible collection of songs before introducing them to the world,” said McCartney. “I so believe in this music, and these songs. With the two digital EPs being released earlier this year and now this special two-disc set arriving, I’m right where I’ve hoped I would be.”
