Bryan James / Bio

From South Philadelphia to South Carolina and back up to NY, the music i write and perform is honest and raw carrying roots from the various places I have lived and loved. Traces of Old School R&B, Blue Grass, and Rock are all infused to make a unique blend of sound and songwriting.
I was Born in Philadelphia in 1980 to a single mother working her way through nursing school and trying to get her life back together. She had an appreciation for Rockers Like Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and Mo-towners like Stevie and Gaye. This is how it started, seeing my mother screaming her head off and dancing around the living room.
2008 after some disturbing life events i began writing to deal with the struggles and victories i was having and decided to get together with a guitarist and friend to share some songs at an impromptu jam session at Dominco's coffee shop in Utica. He pushed me play the next night at an open mic and has since been my right hand man and lead guitarist. Behind every good man is a better woman. My wife has inspired me at times when i thought it was nuts to chase my passion for writing and performing.
Whether working in a maximum security prison or taking care of terminally ill patients, life's terrible and great stories are put to song.
