Imagine all the people livin’ life in peace.
A Nashville-based artist graced with uncommonly rich and captivating vocals, Jeffrey James channels his raw talent into a groove-heavy R&B/alt-pop hybrid built on pure emotion. With his music already featured on major TV shows like Nashville, James is set to deliver a new batch of songs showcasing a sensibility that’s emotionally charged and indelibly melodic.
Born and bred in Brownsburg, Indiana, James grew up singing in the school choir and—at age ten—learned to play guitar with the help of the Hal Leonard Guitar Method books his own great uncle had authored. In high school, he joined up with a local alt-rock band, then tried his hand at songwriting for the first time and quickly fell in love with the craft. While majoring in music at Nashville’s Belmont University, James delved deeper into songwriting and immersed himself in the city’s singer/songwriter scene. “I played every writers round I could, testing out songs and getting a feel for what was connecting with people,” he says. “And then when I graduated I started playing a lot of colleges, just grabbing my acoustic guitar and driving up to somewhere in North Dakota or wherever else they’d let me perform.”
