James & Black
Singer-songwriter Bruce James from Houston, Texas is a musician in heart and soul. Not only has he been playing the piano his entire life, he also played pretty much every instrument on his records The Wayside Drive Session (2004), Junkyard Soul (2007) en Yours, Mine And The Truth (2009).
Needless to say, his new formation James & Black has a very distinct flavour. The warm and soothing groove of Otis Redding, combined with the melancholy sound of Tom Waits is a definition the man hears all the time. He shared stages with heroes like Fred Wesley, Leon Russell and Burning Spear, and now shares ours with singer-songwriter Bella Black. Her vocal abilities stem from gospel and her poetic lyrics match perfectly with those of frontman James.
James & Black are now on tour through Europe, so catch them while they’re here!
