James began writing his original songs late in his high school days at Brookwood High School in Snellville GA. He began teaching himself how to play the keyboard and soon after began composing original music. His style is Easy Listening combined with deep heartfelt lyrics. Some of his earlier influencers were Jon McLaughlin, One Republic, John Mayer, Michael Buble, Joshua Radin, Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw, Jason Mraz, John Legend, Sarah Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, Adele, Ron Pope, Train, and The Script.

His debut LP Album is titled "Music to Play." 

"As a Singer/Songwriter I hope that you download and enjoy my first album, but most importantly I hope that the lyrics and the musical structure of each song resonates with you on a personal level. My goal in writing these songs is to convey to the listener how and what I was thinking and feeling at the exact moment when the song was being written. I try to write each song with a simple yet meaningful structure allowing the listener to feel their own connection to the song, while also understanding my portrayal of the story I am trying to depict. One thing I love about being a song writer is seeing different interpretations of my songs from every individual perspective. Knowing that I can reach people through my music always inspires me to keep writing.

As a Songwriter, in the beginning, I was not sure if I would be open to anyone else to perform my originals. Now, I realize how exciting it is to see artists take on my creations and bring their own personal feelings into their work as they vocally and musically deliver the messages of my songs. My main goal is to write heartfelt songs and to have others, not only enjoy them, but enjoy performing them. 

My hope now is that artists will want to record my works, and perhaps my songs could make a contribution to movies, theater, or television productions. 

I also would like to see and hear artists of all experience levels perform my songs in a YouTube video. I will be posting musical tracks with lyrics on YouTube along with chord sheets if artists would like to use their own instrumentation."
