Here's your chance to see Nate James performing at London's Scala in Kings Cross on June 14 - the same week his sophomore album ‘Kingdom Falls' hits the streets.

The show, his biggest date in the UK's capital since his Shepherd's Bush Empire gig back in October 05, follows 4 sold out shows at Jazz Café last year, will be part of a string of worldwide dates promoting the album in both Europe (including headlining the Antwerp Harbour Jazz & Soul Festival alongside Incognito) and in Japan (with headline shows in Tokyo & Osaka).

TO WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS TO SEE NATE LIVE AT THE SCALA NEXT WEEK, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ANSWER THIS EASY QUESTION:

"WHAT IS THE NAME OF NATE JAMES RECORD LABEL?"

Email your answer along with your name and a daytime contact number to: editorial@bluesandsoul.com marking it NATE JAMES COMP!

(Competition closes 12 midnight - Wednesday June 13)

The gig will give you the chance to sample forthcoming material from his new album ‘Kingdom Falls', released June 11 on Nate's own label Fro-Funk, which sees him on a more experimental tip than his well-received debut. Recording started in London in October 06 and finished in LA in February 07. The album was mixed by Outkast's mix engineer Neal H Pogue, at the same studio in LA where Michael Jackson's Thriller was recorded, and features guest appearances from Vula Malinga from Basement Jaxx and Rod Temperton's current protégé Emily Friendship.

Nate's reputation as a live artist was cemented back in 05 at his biggest show yet, a sell-out at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire. In addition to a subsequent full UK tour, Nate spent most of last summer touring Europe and the Far East.

Don't miss the chance to see him play this intimate venue.
