Michael James (born 13 September 1940), known professionally as Jimmy James, is a Jamaican soul music singer, known for songs like “Come To Me Softly”, “Now Is the Time” and “I’ll Go Where the Music Takes Me”. Based in Britain, he has performed as the lead singer of Jimmy James and the Vagabonds since the mid 1960s.

The Vagabonds were originally formed in 1960. James teamed up with them under Canadian band manager Roger Smith and in April 1964, they relocated to the UK. “Ska-Time” (Decca Records) was recorded as Jamaica’s Own Vagabonds within two weeks of their arrival, and is one of the first examples of Jamaican ska music to be recorded in the UK. After meeting manager Peter Meaden in 1965, Jimmy James and the Vagabonds supported The Who and Rod Stewart who was with his group The Steampacket at the Marquee Club in London. The band played the Shanklin Pier ballroom on the Isle of Wight in June 1965 and returned for two further sold-out concerts that summer. He and the Vagabonds shared several bills with Jimi Hendrix’s band, The Experience, during the late 1960s when they were both trying to establish themselves. “We used to hang out a lot at clubs like the Bag O’ Nails, the Cromwellian and Whiskey A Go Go. A great guy, very quiet and unassuming,” James recalled. The Vagabonds and the Experience also played the Ricky Tick and Upper Cut clubs in London in December 1966 and January 1967 respectively, and at the Beachcomber Ballroom in Nottingham.
