James has been a professional musician for more than half of his life now gigging for the last 25 years. He’s shared the stage with many of his heroes including Eric Gales, Johnny Winter, Little Milton, Popa Chubby, Pat Travers, Luther Guitar Jr Johnson and even actor/comedian Bill Murray to name a few.
