In 1997, he became a solo artist and songwriter, donning the name “Lone Wolf James,” developing his own style of Acoustic Hard Rock with a Blues/Funk edge.

Releasing his debut CD, “Prey,” on April Fool’s Day 2000, the CD sold out. He then received “Best Artist,” “Best Album of the Year,” and “Elite Musician Award in 2000/2001.”

His second CD, “Native Groove,” was released in 2002, and Alternative News Magazine presented him the award for “Best Male Vocalist of the Year” and was inducted into the Music Meter Hall Of Fame.

Lone Wolf James placed first in the Emergenza National Festival, and was endorsed by Millennia Guitars. He then was hand picked by Lil Stevie Van Zant (Bruce Springsteen band) to perform at his Underground Garage Showcase in RI. He performed as part of the nonprofit A3D to raise money for Africa.
