"Carolyn Stokes Walker's Recommendation"

“Upon first meeting James, I was greatly pleased with his professionalism, especially considering how often egos and attitudes can impede progress in the music industry. He engages his audience with humor and retains them with his talent, performing a mix of his original music and creative takes on covers. Prompt, enthusiastic and embarking on a promising career, I'd highly recommend James to anyone looking for a well rounded performer.” February 21, 2009 - Rockstar Productions / Linkedin.com

James Grande is a singer/songwriter based out of Rhode Island. His style is a combination of Weezer's catchy hooks and Dave Matthews' acoustic rhythms. His smooth vocals and harmonies are a direct reflection of his liking to The Beach Boys (the first band James had ever heard).

At 21, he began funding and recording his own studio album, which was completed over a year and a half period. Currently James is pursuing a career in music, and his songs have been generating some buzz around the New England area.

His live sets differ from the stereotypical "singer/songwriter's". James uses a loop pedal to create multiple sounds, effects, and vocals to make his performances much more dynamic. A direct influence of KT Tunstall, James sets himself apart from every other guy with a guitar. His debut album "Start the Show" is available now for download.
