Bio

Astro James is a singer-songwriter known for his quirky personality and psychedelic live shows. Combining the New Orleans musical traditions of blues, jazz, funk and rock & roll with the free spirited west coast indie psych-rock aesthetic,James creates a sound that draws from influences of the past, yet still manages to sound modern and continues to push sonic boundaries. With an extremely loose and improvisational approach to music, every live performance is unique and unlike the last.

The Astro James story begins when he moved to Denton, Texas in 2019. Surrounded by the thriving local house show scene, he saw an opportunity to perform for his peers. Astro began playing with a Grateful Dead cover band that later became the psychedelic rock jam outfit “The Orange Sunshine Band” and met his songwriting partner Savion Perry. 2020 was a hugely generative period for Astro, he recorded and released his seven-song debut album “Paper Soldier” by the end of the summer. On the evening of the release Astro live streamed an acoustic performance of the entire album across the globe from Kermit’s Treme Mother In Law Lounge in New Orleans, Louisiana. Astro was accompanied by saxophonist Sam Taylor and a surprise guest performance alongside the New Orleans jazz legend Kermit Ruffins. Astro’s debut album “Paper Soldier” is currently available on all streaming platforms.
