Collaborators, cohorts and conspirators...
The Vaulted Skies is proud to be associated with...
Joanna sang vocals alongside James in previous bands and is to all intents and purposes, a founder member of The Vaulted Skies, having performed under that name with James before the fuller line-up was formed. Joanna remains James' greatest muse and most honest critic, for which he is eternally grateful.
Responsible for many of the photographs on this website, Pete Bilk was also James' musical mentor when he first started setting words to music. Quite the renaissance man, Pete also produces other forms of visual art.
Rupert "Roo Hobbers" Hobday was The Vaulted Skies' original wingman guitarist, and played a significant role in realising the sound James was after. He performed live with the band during their first two years on the circuit, and appears on a number of the band's early recordings.
Alex was in previous bands with James. Before Scott Bradley joined The Vaulted Skies, Alex stepped in to play drums on a number of tracks that feature on The Strange EP.
John Melia & Scott Bradley
John (bass) and Scott (drums) were The Vaulted Skies' rhythm section until 2016.
Jager 'Bom' Bomber
'Bom' has played drums with The Vaulted Skies on a number of important occasions... The first being the band's support slot on David Bowie and Cure guitarist Reeves Gabrels' 2015 UK tour (because Scott Bradley was overseas), and the second being on the 2016 'NO FATE?' EP recording sessions.
Roger played keyboards for The Vaulted Skies in 2016, contributing to the band's 'NO FATE?' EP, and performing a series of live dates.
