With his prolific songwriting and unique vocal style James led Australian Crawl to the top of the Australian music scene. The band’s popularity skyrocketed with all of their albums achieving Top 5 status, and the band winning Countdown Music/Video awards, Best Band and James for Best Male Vocal for three consecutive years. James also won Best Song for "Reckless". The band broke up in 1986 after assuring themselves a place in Australian music history.

In just over twenty years as a recording artist James has sold over one million albums as a solo performer and almost another 2 million with Australian Crawl, including 31 hit singles.

For 20 years Australia has loved the sound and songs of singer James Reyne. James Reyne himself however has had to learn to love being James Reyne again. He’s done that with ‘Speedboats For Breakfast’, and the result (no hype!) is what he believes (and is!) to be the best record he’s ever made.

From start to finish ‘Speedboats For Breakfast’ is different to any other record James Reyne has ever made. When James and ex Horsehead guitarist Scott Kingman started work on this album there was no record company involved. They decided to back themselves, creatively and financially, to make the record they wanted to make. Whatever came after that was left to fate. They rented a house overlooking the rugged Victorian coastline, on the Mornington Peninsula where Australian Crawl began and James has returned in recent years. And surrounded by the landscape that is as much James Reyne as his music, James Scott and some long time associates recorded ‘Speedboats For Breakfast’.

What you’ll hear for yourself is everything everyone’s always loved about James Reyne .. and more. This is the step into the future he’s been longing for. Enjoying James Reyne has always been about more than that unmistakable vocal style. It’s also been about the way his voice wraps its way around a melody and draws out incredibly memorable choruses. It’s about James Reyne’s love of words, the sound of the words as well as the images they evoke. All of that is here on ‘Speedboats For Breakfast’ - James Reyne at his very very best. Listen and you know it’s true.
