"I think integrity should be affiliated with [James'] music. A strong voice with lyrics that have smarts, a hook that puts a smile on my face"
"Yes, his intricate musicianship and clear understanding of instant hooks and pop songwriting totally defy his fresh face. But its James' casual, smooth delivery and natural playfulness in songs like 'You, Me, and O.P' (an ode to never growing up) that connect immediately. Pretty sure my mom, my girlfriend, and my neighbour's 13 yr old daughter would all put his picture on the wall and his disc in the player."
"[A] very soulful voice .... this is what you hope or when an artist combines pop, jazz and blues"
“Don’t let James Struthers fool you – the local songwriter may sing about Transformers and Easy-Bake Ovens, but he has a sound and style beyond his years.”
