James Hearn (full name: James Daniel Guy Hearn; born on 19 June 1973, Denham, Buckinghamshire, England) is an English singer-songwriter. He is best known as being the vocalist of boyband Ultra.[citation needed]


Hearn attended the same high school as Ultra's guitarist and drummer, Mike Harwood and Jon O'Mahony, respectively, where they met. He was in the same class as Harwood, and O'Mahony was a couple of years older. Hearn went on to the University of Leeds[citation needed] and studied Geography and Management, graduating in 1999. He was once a pentathlon athlete, but when he realized that sport was not the highest paid career choice, he turned to music.

In 1997, Hearn, Harwood, O'Mahony, and Nick Keynes, formed Ultra and released their self-titled debut album in 1999, for which Hearn wrote most of the songs. He left the band and worked as a surveyor[1] before he earned a master's degree from the University of Reading.[2] Ultra reunited in 2005 and released a second album, The Sun Shines Brighter.
