Salisbury, Wiltshire (2001 – present)

Duncan James was born Duncan Matthew James Inglis in Salisbury, Wiltshire) on April 7, 1978.

He is a singer in the boy band Blue and also a solo artist. He is openly homosexual.

James grew up in Dorset and was raised primarily by his grandparents. He starred in A Midsummer Night’s Dream when he was 15, and played Puck. He also played Dr Watson in Sherlock Holmes when he was a teenager.

In early 2000, James, along with Antony Costa, convinced Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe to form the group Blue. Blue’s R&B-influenced pop allowed the group to achieve commercial success in the United Kingdom and many other countries, including Italy, Australia, and New Zealand. From May 2001, when the group released its first single, “All Rise,” to 2004, when the group released its final chart-qualifying single, “Curtain Falls,” Blue had 11 top ten singles in the UK.

Though Blue has never formally announced its permanent breakup, it split in July 2005 and all four members have moved on to solo careers. James has criticized the solo efforts of some of his former bandmates, referring to Ryan’s first album as “rushed” and Costa’s bid to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest as “cheesy.”

In October 2004, James collaborated with Keedie to release the single “I Believe My Heart”, which entered the UK singles chart at #2. He returned to the solo music scene in May 2006 with his single “Sooner or Later”, releasing the video in early May and planning to release the single commercially on June 5, 2006.
