 Hi all you Stars,


I am happy to announce Subpar Co-star is playing a free show on Saturday 1/26 at Sally O'Brien's in Union Sq. Somerville.  It is a great Irish bar with cheap drinks, no cover, plenty of parking, no cover, and a great vibe (no cover).  Did I mention there is no cover?  Subpar Co-star opens the night up, so be there early.  Doors at 8 pm. 


Other than that, hope you are having a great new year thus far.


Warm wishes,





"I just think it is better to focus not on whether something would be popular, but more on if it is creatively fulfilling as the creator. I think if you are working on projects that you find artistically/philosophically/creatively stimulating, you are more inclined to let your own personality shine, and I, personally, love the art that has the most personality."  Blake Maddux, The Somerville Times

"“Ambitious and cool-looking, “The Idiot” package is the pinnacle of a trend trying to give music value. And Subpar’s music — a blend of freak folk, power pop and experimental rock – should be valued. “"  Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald

"Subpar Co-Star (a.k.a. James Force) was compelling with his whimsical irrelevant style and acoustic guitar looping (quite impressive). I would call his thing ‘experimental folk,’... He has an album available, Gidgets and Gadgets, an aptly-named venture, what with its neo-folk, jazz-funk, spoken word, experimental, electronic and ambient influences (and sometimes all on the same song). DIY recorded, produced and “distributed” as a numbered limited edition, the packaging is as lo-fi as the recording, hand-lettered with custom stickers, each bearing a different method of acceptable payment for the release (mine says “pay w/ a unicorn, if ya got one”)."  Julie Stoller, The Boston Survival Guide
