James picked up a guitar in post-breakup depression and wrote a lot of sad songs about it. Now he gets sad but trys to stay rad.

Crywank is huge on /mu/ especially among the angsty female members for his boyish charm and gut wrenching lyrics.

He lives in Manchester, England and plays there very frequently. The albums deal with themes of depression and worthlessness, often being very upsetting or close to home for some listeners. 

All of his music is available online for free. He's very poor and doesn't wash often because of it. Recently he got his friend Dan to hit a box while playing to add a precussive element. He's also started learning fingerpicking and more complex melodies, while still having no theoretic knowledge at all.

The name originates from one of James friends nicknaming him it due to his emotional displays, it can also be considered a play on "tearjearker". His mother tells her friends he's called Tearjerk.
