James is a Texas Folk singer/songwriter from Pleasanton, Texas and is currently based in Austin, Texas. James was the winner of the 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival’s University Singer/Songwriter Contest.
He has opened for fellow Americana acts such as Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, John Baumann, Jonny Burke, Michael Martin Murphey, Mike & The Moonpies, Jamie Lin Wilson, and Rodney Hayden.
His songs take aim at topics such as Western decay, urban angst, faded love, and what he calls “typical county country” fare. His eclectic upbringing, spending large portions of his childhood in Saudi Arabia and Germany, aid in his unique worldview and subsequent song subject matter.
