Robert James

Like the Lizard he sings about, Robert's coat is as colorful and as shiny.

At age thirteen, he made his television debut fronting a country band; at age seventeen he was bass guitarist and lead vocalist for a high-flying rock and roll band playing to festival sized crowds, and by age nineteen had recorded his first single.

Raw and sinewy on stage, he rocks with honesty and intensity, while his Irish, French, Cree and Apache roots help him remain true to the muses that guide him. A pure singer/songwriter, Robert presents his music in a timely and ultimately, timeless fashion. A healthy lack of respect for musical boundaries only serve to make his music that much more memorable.

His third CD release, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, is now available through CDBaby, Apple i-tunes and other fine internet retailers. 'Get Raw', the first video single, is available in the DVD format as a music performance video. Nothing flashy, just an honest interpretation of what you can expect from this happy and humble artist. His first mp3 single, 'Santa's On His Way' was released this past December, but will be included on his upcoming fourth CD.

In addition to his own work, Robert has also begun writing and recording for his garage-country act "The Blacks". Of the thirty or so songs written for the project so far, the daunting task will be choosing the final eight for the debut release, 'Meet The Blacks'. Emily Trann, a talented young vocalist who has recorded two of Robert's songs, is soon to be featured on a compilation sampler along with Robert, The Blacks and other artists, courtesy of The Kingsway Group, their record label.
