The singer-songwriter is the only son of The Beatles legend and his late Linda, and brother to Heather, 59, Mary, 52, and designer Stella, 50.
He also has a half-sister, Beatrice, who is the daughter of Sir Paul and Heather Mills, who were married from 2002 to 2008.
At first he shunned the limelight, but later followed in his father’s footsteps and began working in the music industry.
James continued to collaborate with Sir Paul, playing guitar on his records Flaming cake and Driving rain. He also recorded Light comes from within with his mother before she died of breast cancer in 1998.
His debut single, Available light was released in 2010, followed by Me in 2013 and another, Blackberry Train, in 2016.
In 2012, James announced that he and the other sons of former Beatles members were ready to form a new band, The Beatles: The Next Generation.
“I would be ready. Sean (Lennon, son of John Lennon) seemed to be into it, Danny (Harrison, son of George Harrison) seemed to be into it,” he told the BBC, adding that “I would love to do it”.
James also explained that he has turned a corner in his approach to his father’s fame.
“I think it’s great. It is better for me to accept it and not to run away, as I did before,” he said.
