akabigjames... songwriter / performer... veteran of studio and stage.
James has spent his entire adult life in music.
As a performer, James has brought excited crowds to their feet for many years.
As a writer, arranger, and producer, James has achieved a style that blends his love of Pop and Dance music with elements of his soulful Bluesrock and Motown sensibilities. To this he adds a sprinkling of Classical and a little experimentation. When writing Christian music he labels his style Neo Christian.
As a church music director and worship leader, James has led, performed, and also written original music for worship services and children's weekly chapel sessions.
Like many of today's composer's, James writes, performs, produces, and mixes all of his music using desktop production technology on an Apple computer. James says, "Working alone using today's technology has certain advantages. It allows me to sketch out my ideas really quickly and without interruption. But I also really enjoy working with guest musicians because they bring a different and new energy to a piece."
In an effort to continue learning and growing as a musician, James is realizing a lifelong dream by attending college to complete his degree in music. More to come... God willing... because James is!
