James was born in Orange Park and raised in Jacksonville Florida. He started playing the guitar at the early age of 7 years old and by the age of 10 he started playing in several school bands. By the time he was 12 years old, James played in a band called “The Recreations " that played locally and had the opportunity to help raise money for The Jerry Lewis Telethon in 1970 that was televised in California. For years after James played in a lot of bands as a hired gun lead guitarist for bands like Lenox, Full Moon Band, The Dalton Gang, Summer’s Rain featuring Atimus Pyle and many more.. James also had the pleasure of working with Jim Brown and the band members of the Opal City Band as a light and sound tech. Later James moved to St. Augustine and started playing with the ESP Band with the keyboardist and lead vocalist Leon Katt that he played with from The Full Moon Band. The band played up and down the East Coast from Daytona Beach, St. Augustine, Jacksonville to North Carolina and preformed for many years on Carnival Cruise Line on the “The Holiday, Inspiration and Fantasy” ships! With all of that said, I love to rock every style of music and make my guitar sing!!!
