“Upon looking for musicians for an instrumental project of mine, what caught my eye was James’ versatility. I was looking for a guitarist who also played piano/keyboard, and he fit the bill. I took the opportunity to hire him as a studio musician. He brought professional equipment to the studio and found the guitar tone I was looking for very quickly. Recording progressed so quickly that we even had time for him to double his rhythm guitar tracks. He also delivered very well on keys, and I am very happy with his contribution to my project. After the recording session, I decided to check out his solo act when he still lived in the Boston area. I was blown away. His guitar skills are top notch, and his compositional skills are inspirational. If you haven’t heard his music yet, you are seriously missing out!”
