After being born and raised in Peterborough, Ontario, he has led somewhat of a nomadic lifestyle, leading him to Nelson, Vancouver, Montreal, and is now currently residing in Berlin. James' songs reflect many of his experiences on the road, as well as exploring themes of love, friendship, and reckless behaviour. Never needing more than his suitcase, guitar, and harmonica, he offers his folk-blues style to anyone who asks for it.
James wins over audiences with powerful performances, taking the stage with his acoustic guitar and captivating crowds. Baby Blue will be followed by his debut album in the summer of 2016.
