Wendy James (born 21 January 1966, London) is an English singer-songwriter most notable for her work with the pop band Transvision Vamp.
James was adopted soon after birth, and left home at the age of sixteen, moving to the English seaside resort town of Brighton. There she met Nick Christian Sayer, who became her boyfriend and musical collaborator. Sayer and James moved to London, where they teamed up with friends Dave Parsons, Tex Axile and Pol Burton, with whom they formed the pop-punk band, Transvision Vamp. James was the lead singer and focal point of the group, and attracted media attention with her sexually-charged and rebellious image.
