James studied Music and Communications at CSUF and at the BIT of Musician’s Institute. He played bass for 13 years as a member of bands across several genres including metal, indie rock and kpop. On June 10, 2015 a debilitating accident severed his left hand and left James unable to play the bass any longer. After a brief stint playing synth for his former band Royal Pirates he called it quits because of the worsening condition of his health.
After 5 surgeries James moved back to Los Angeles and decided to release music written post accident in a project called ’the Light EP’. Funding a successful kickstarter campaign has been fundamental to rehabilitation and restarting his hopes as a musician. He is currently writing and recovering and continues to create as his passion.
James has toured worldwide and performed on stages of various international festivals and concerts including Van’s Warped Tour, Supersonic Festival, Hyundai Card City Break amongst others alongside bands including Queen, Maroon 5, Earth Wind & Fire and the Pet Shop Boys.
When I decided to work on THE LIGHT EP it took everything I had to commit to it. This journey has been my greatest source of rehab and hope, and there is no way I could have done it without the support I received along the way.
As I continue to create different projects it is my mission to do so as sincerely and genuinely as possible. If you would like to support this effort, you can donate here.
