Answering the demands of a busy social and artistic life, James splits his time between the USA and Europe, basing his European time in Lanzarote, Canary Islands where he owns a home... 300 shows a year leave just enough time to write some songs and stay healthy.

Born and raised in New Jersey, musically schooled in Upstate New York and Canada, James has travelled the USA extensively, living in such diverse locations as Los Angeles, Memphis and Austin, Texas....
James has dedicated alot of the last 20 years performing throughout Europe, at times calling France and Spain his homes away from home, thus speaking and sometimes singing in French and Spanish.
Along the way, he has had the opportunity of recording his own albums, and performing with others....  John Carter Cash, Elliott Murphy, the Moody Brothers, Flaco Jimenez, Tony Joe White, Mick James, Tommy Gunn....

With a new album, Against The Tide, look to see alot more of James throughout the USA and Europe....
