FORMER Starsailor frontman has been working with up and coming singer Eliza Doolittle.

The pair have been holed up in a London studio for Eliza’s self titled album.

Eliza - whose real name is Eliza Sophie Caird - said: “James and I are writing songs together and I’m really pleased with how it’s going.

“I was experimenting for a while – writing with other people as well for a few months – to find out what sort of direction I wanted to take.

“Now it’s much clearer. Whoever I am working with I have created a sound and it feels good.

“It’s coming together really well. I am just excited to get it out to everybody now. I’m going to keep working at it and try to write another smash.”

James, a former Wigan and Leigh student - recently performed at the Isle of Wight Festival and is to play at the Sure Garden Party festival in the Isle of Man next weekend.
