Mike James is an enigma among musicians; a true "do-it-yourselfer" who writes, engineers and performs all instrumentation, and produces his music straight from the gut. His songs and lyrics are insightful, quirky, and offer many uncommon textures and twists.
Playing guitar since the age of seven, Mike's had extensive experience in professional music production as well as live performance. He has shared the stage with such luminaries as flugelhorn great Louis Gaska (Santana) and organ virtuoso Joey DeFrancesco (Danny Gatton, John McLaughlin), and has opened for The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Matt "Guitar" Murphy, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Ty Herndon, The Stylistics, Commander Cody, The Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Buddy Guy among others.
So We were going to make an album to sell for Christmas, a whole slew of jacked-up tunes and all was going well...until we tried to procure licensing for the backing tracks. It was pretty much impossible to get clearance. SO...we can't sell these but we can give 'em away. :D Have fun, amaze your relatives and friends with these cheeky renditions of holiday favorites.
And check out all our other albums for sale here! We hope you enjoy.
