Born in Minneapolis of Irish and Panamanian descent, James has learnt a thing or two about good song-writing in his 28 years.
His intoxicating blend of jazz, hip-hop, R&B and electronica is found on his previous albums, The Dreamer, Black Magic . On his latest release, No Beginning No End, he delves deeper into pop songs whilst keeping his ever unique spin on jazz and soul music.
Catch him at Bedroom Bar, for a very special London show.
“No Beginning No End sums up how I feel about music right now, I don’t want to be confined to any particular style. I decided I didn’t want to be considered a jazz singer anymore and that was really freeing. Once I realized that jazz singing is just something that I do and it’s just a label, it freed me as an artist to just write without any boundaries.”- José James
“A rising jazz star… Spectacular… There’s nothing tentative or delicate about his voice, which carries marks of jazz vocalists and also soul singers from Marvin Gaye to Barry White.” - John Caramanica, New York Times
“I thought singers like this didn’t exist anymore, I was wrong, José James is here to remind us why we love music so much!”- Gilles Peterson, BBC 6 Music
