My Favorite Part presents
Born and raised in London to a market trader father and a taxi driver mother, musician James Smith is your typical East End lad.He has a penchant for Working Mens Clubs, West Ham FC and Hackney record shops. His upbringing was a nomadic one – at least around East London. He was born in Newham but for a fraction of the time his family lived with his Nan in a council block in Upton Park which overlooked the West Ham Stadium – something which was perfect for him as a self-proclaimed Hammers fan. Afterwards he moved to Barking before winding up in Essex.
