James Brown is Annie All You Need to Know

JBiA (James Brown Is Annie) formed in a piano bar, rehearse next to a sex shop, and take their name from a Saturday Night Live Eddie Murphy sketch.
In 2014, the band received investment from Creative Scotland to record its debut album with Average White Band saxophonist Molly Duncan producing. 

Mastered by Atlantic Records' Gene Paul, Average White Band's Alan Gorrie contributed a song (debut single, Ask Your Doctor), exclusively for the band's album, to be released on 22nd February - 40 years to the day AWB's Pick Up The Pieces topped the American charts. 

Regular recipients of national press and national radio air-play, JBiA have opened shows for the likes of AWB, Little Feat, Electric 6, Spin Doctors, Robert Cray, Public Service Broadcasting, to name but a few. They opened again for The Average White Band on May 8th at the 02, Glasgow.

They will be debuting in London on the 20th June at The PizzaExpress Jazz Club, joined by Molly Duncan himself.

Their self-titled album was released on Friday 24 April.
