"With the exception of a handful of acts - like Muse and Ben Howard for instance - I don't believe the talent in Devon has been truly recognised," says James.
"Saturday nights on BBC Radio Devon is a place where we can throw the spotlight on new and upcoming musicians and get their music to a much wider audience.
"BBC Introducing has so many opportunities for local artists to get involved with so many different things like Maida Vale sessions and major festivals.
"But in order to be considered, your music needs to be submitted via the BBC Uploader."
Whether you're a solo artist, a producer or a member of a band, if you come from Devon James wants to hear from you.
And who knows, you could be the next big thing.
