James was born in Calgary & started playing piano at 13. At the age of 17 he enrolled in the Jazz program at Mount Royal College in Calgary. He also travelled throughout Alberta and B.C with various bar bands playing a mix of Metal, Rock and Pop!
After several years on the road, James turned directions & started to compose, arrange and record music. Then James stopped playing for almost a decade. It was the encouragement & support of friends & fans that pushed James to started playing again.
Sharing the fun & joy of music …..the way it’s supposed to be.
