Jess & James are Fernando & Toni Lameirinhas. With a career in the music business spanning over forty years, the Lameirinhas brothers' story traces back to 1959 when by escaping the oppresive environment of Oliveira Salazar's dictatorship in their native Portugal, the Lameirinhas family left Porto to resettle close to the Belgian city of Charleroi. There, the two brothers studied music under an Italian expatriate and bitten by the Rock'n'roll bug, founded their first band, The Modes, releasing their first single in 1964.However, The Modes did not last very long, inspired by the hot music sounding from the States the brothers started a new, firey, soulful act, naming themselves as Jess (Toni) & James (Fernando) they recorded and released their new songs on a few singles before the true magic happened, it was called ''Move''. ''We were so busy performing that it took us a while to realize ''Move'' was a big hit all over Europe'', recalls Toni. Restless performers, the two were doing many gigs, specially in Spain, where their records as released by Belter, sold like hotcakes. Soul was all the rage in Spanish nightclubs making Jess & James one of the hottest acts. Belter described the duo as ''Two really original guys. Hidden under long black cloaks, they live according to the ideals of another world they have made their own. Their scream is one against tyranny, war, violence, and above all total peace between all men of good will''.
